Station House Blues

Written by Virgil Anderson
Recorded by Rich & the Po’ Folk

Last night I laid in my slumber just as quiet as any other mouse
That police man he got my number and he took me to the county station house

Station house, station house, they took me to the county station house
Station house, station house, they took me to the county station house

Said where is my pocket book and money the gold watch and chain that I wore
That police man he took them from me and I probably wont see them no more

No more, no more, I probably wont see them no more
No more, no more, I probably wont see them no more

They in stand me in front of these judges said I find no fault in this boy
You can tell by his eyes that he’s a bummer lets send him up for ninety days or more

Ninety days, ninety days, lets send him up for ninety days or more
Ninety days, ninety days, lets send him up for ninety days or more

Im going to my new jail tomorrow to leave my true love at home
With cold prison bars all around me my head on a pillow of stone

Of stone, of stone, my head on a pillow of stone
Of stone, of stone, my head on a pillow of stone
