On this rock pile, with my ball and chain.
They call me by a number not a name Lord, Lord.

[Chorus]
Gotta do my time, I gotta do my time.
With an aching heart, on that gal of mine.

You can here my hammer, you can hear my saw.
Gonna sing it like John Henry all day long Lord, Lord.

[Chorus]

When that old judge looked down at me.
Said I put you in that penitentiary Lord, Lord.
