How To Play

INTRO
 
D A E E
 
 
VERSE 1
 
A                                                E
I went down to the county jail and turned myself in
                                                       A
Spending all my weekends here, far from my good-timing friends
                                                    D
Things just went from bad to worse but I don't know when
                 A                   E                A
The only thing I know for sure is I ain't going back again
 
 
VERSE 2
 
     A                                                  E
They took me down to cellblock B after stripping off my clothes
                                            A
Put me in a monkey suit and threw me in the throes
                                                                   D
Like a rat in a maze, a cow in the herd ar a sparrow with a broken wing
               A              E                 A
Now I know the reason why the caged bird has to sing
 
 
CHORUS
 
          E                       D               A
Cause I'm just a weekender in the Davidson County Jail
    E                                    D          A
And my old man, he ain't got the cash to even go my bail
                           A7                       D
Should have listened to my mama and quit my life of sin
  A               E        A
Before I went backsliding again
 
 
VERSE 3
 
     A                                                        E
This bed is hard and the room is cold and my cellmate's got a cough
                                                                   A
She takes her meds and sleeps all day got six more weeks til she's off
                                                         D
She said she beat her boyfriend up while high on crack cocaine
                     A                 E                A
And now she sits and watches her young life go down the drain
 
 
CHORUS
 
            E                       D               A
Cause she's just a weekender in the Davidson County Jail
E                                 D           A
Her old man ain't got the cash to even go her bail
                                A7                        D
She should have listened to her mama and quit her life of sin
  A                 E        A
Before she went backsliding again
 
 
SOLO

VERSE 4
 
A                                                E
Walk into some other room, they tried to make me eat
                                                               A
Red-dyed gravy, cardboard bread and something that looked like meat
                                                                    D
One tough girl from cellblock C, picked a fight with the man at the desk
                     A                      E                A
Mighty soon was sent back to her room and I bet you know the rest
 
 
CHORUS
 
            E                          D               A
Cause we're all just weekenders in the Davidson County Jail
E                                D            A
My old man ain't got the cash to even call my bail
                            A7                               D
Should have listened to the good Lord, maybe quit my life of sin
  A               E        A
Before I went backsliding again
                  E        A
Before I went backsliding again
