Lyrics

[Intro:]
Cold cold cold cold it's cold in the Hutchinson Jail

[Verse 1:]
Somebody help me please I'm as helpless as can be
And I don't know what my life is comin' to
They say I shot a man but I never shot I ran
That was my first mistake I'm telling you

[Chorus:]
Ah it's cold in the Hutchinson Jail ah it's cold in the Hutchinson Jail
Yeah it's cold cold cold cold it's cold in the Hutchinson Jail

[Verse 2:]
I got a wife in Wichita and a girl in Saginaw
And they both ain't heard from me in some time
I hate to disappoint 'em both but some feller under oath
Said I did it and they believed his story not mine

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
Snow's all over the ground there ain't one robin around
That I'd trust to carry a message to a friend
Guess I'll just stay here till spring sure wish I knew what's spring
They'd let me out so I can start again

[Chorus]
