on a Monday
Johnny Cash (26.02.1932 - 12.09.2003) hat dieses Volkslied bei seinem legendären Konzert in "Folsom State Prison" (13.01.1968) unter dem Titel "I got stripes" gesungen.

on a Monday

On a Monday, Monday I was arrested,
On a Tuesday locked up in jail.
On a Wen'sday, my trial was attested,
On a Thursday nobody wouldn't go my bail.

|: Well it's all, almost done. :|
Well it's all, almost done,
And I ain't gonna see
Them pretty gals no more.

On a Friday me and my babe was walkin',
On a Saturday she locked me out the doors.
On a Sunday we were sittin' down talking,
On a Monday she pawned all of my clothes.

|: Well it's all, almost done. :|
Well it's all, almost done,
And I ain't gonna see
Them pretty gals no more.

Take these stripes, stripes from around my shoulder,
Take these chains, chains from around my leg.
Lord, these stripes, stripes they sure don't worry me,
But these chains, chains, gonna kill me dead.

|: Well it's all, almost done. :|
Well it's all, almost done,
And I ain't gonna see
Them pretty gals no more.
