On a Wednesday My trial was attested On a Thursday They said guilty And the judge's gavel fell (CHORUS) I got stripes Stripes around my shoulders I got chains Chains around my feet I got stripes Stripes around my shoulders And them chains, them chains They're bout to drag me down On a Monday Got my striped britches (uh huh) On a Tuesday Got my ball and chain (poor boy) On A Wednesday I'm working digging ditches On A Thursday, Lord I begged em not to Knock me down again (CHORUS) On a Monday My mama come to see me On a Tuesday They caught me with a file On a Wednesday I'm down in solitary On a Thursday I start on a bread And water for awhile (CHORUS)
