My sweet baby doll you was in bed just a crying
instead of coming on down to the courthouse
to alibi me, nor to set me free by lying.
you never came to clear my name,
you just stayed in that bed and wailed.
you never even showed up to pay my bail.
Honey I want money just as much as you do.
That is why
I was at Freddie's sniffing that glue dew.
Baskin Robins and knockin'
Mr. Hobbin's on the noggin .
Was all part of the plan we ran
threw with Dan
to get those front seat tickets
to the Elvis show.
You where waiting in line
everything was fine.
Then you got the news
on the wire
it was dire
I looked for you
I looked for the car.
(you drove straight to the bar)
I was disgusted.
I got busted.
I went to jail.
You got drunk at the bar.
Your house was not far.
You stayed in bed and cried.
You could have come and lied.
Elvis is with the angels singing in the choir.
That is why - I sit by - this dumpster
warming my hands near the fire.
Elvis went to his honored seat in heaven,
while I, well I, got bent and was sent - to jail.
