ARLO GUTHRIE lyrics - On A Monday

ARLO GUTHRIE
"On A Monday"

On a Monday
I was arrested
And on a Tuesday,
I got locked up in jail
And on a Wednesday
My trial was attested
And on a Thursday
Nobody would go my bail

Yes I'm gone
Aaaalmost most gone
Yes I'm gone
I'm almost gone
Yes I'm gone,
I'm almost gone
And I ain't going to be seein' them pretty women no more

Take these stripes
These stripes from off my shoulder
Take these chains
These chains from off-a my leg
Well these stripes,
You know that they don't bother me
But these chains
These chains are killin' me dead

Yes I'm gone
Aaaalmost most gone
Yes I'm gone
I'm almost gone
Yes I'm gone,
I'm almost gone
And I ain't going to be seein' them pretty women no more

Now on a Friday
My baby went out walking
And on a Saturday
You know she locked up the door
And on a Sunday
She must have done some talkin'
'Cause on a Monday
She had sold all o my clothes.

Yes I'm gone
Almost most gone
Yes I'm gone
I'm almost gone
Yes I'm gone,
I'm aaalmost gone
And I ain't going to be seein' them pretty women no more
