Mickey Newbury - "1 x 1 Ain't 2" lyrics

I was almost thirty Lord goin' on fourteen
Hock my gold watch n' bought some blue jeans
Jumped a slow freight train to Alabam'
I told my chunky friends in Milwaukee
For the last time friends you will see me
I'm headed South to find out where I am

They decide when you wake up wiped out
Turn the key tryin' to knock your lights out
Someone yelled jail-break in the block
Thirteen years of loosin' Lord I'm tired of boozin'
I just found out that where I am is where I'm not

Why don't you send me some money Mom afford to go my bail
Well the marble lies small in the Monroe County Jail
Yes I know I done you wrong girl but you know I done it well
Why don't you send me some money Mom afford to go my bail

Workin' in a coal mine I don't need no shoe shine
A shoe shine and a coal mine is just a waste of good time
Watch out what they do you two-time-timin' yoohoo
Who do you think you're foolin' your heels need some coolin'
So I got a good mind just to throw you out of my mind

Why don't you send me some money Mom afford to go my bail
In here marble lies small in the Monroe County Jail
Yes I know I done you wrong girl but you know I done it well
Why don't you send me some money Mom afford to go my bail

Hit the street sleak beat around my feet repeat
I get some time to be treat then I trick or treat
Here I find you goin' my way without you goin' my yaahoo
Who do you think you're foolin' your heels need some coolin'
Son I got a good mind just to throw you out of my mind

Whoah send me some money Mom afford to go my bail
Well the marble lies small in the Monroe County Jail
Yes I know I done you wrong girl but you know I done it well hell
Why don't you send me some money Mom afford to go my bail

Well just send me some money Mom afford to go my bail
Well the marble lies small in the Monroe County Jail
Yes I know I done you wrong child but you know I done it well
Why don't you send me some money Mom afford to go my bail
