Johnny Cash

"Orleans Parish Prison"

[Verse 1]
Well, have you seen my dark-haired girl?
She was set on her love to a hungry world
They got her clothes and the money she took
And they wrote her name in the prison books

[Chorus]
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my dark-haired girl?
She's tired and cold and you got the gold
She took from a hungry world
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my dark-haired girl?

[Verse 2]
Well have seen my green eyed son?
He shot a man down with a sawed off gun
And they fond him down by the Pontchartrain
Where they cuffed his arms with a big iron chain

[Chorus]
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free me green eyed son?
I heard him say as you let him away
Sorry for what he's done
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free me green eyed son?

[Verse 3]
Well have you missed my brother man?
He took a little money with a gun in his hand
Know the kids are hungry and the wife isn't well
And the daddy's locked up in a prison cell

[Chorus]
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my brother man?
I know it's sad but he isn't bad
He's doing the best he can
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my brother man?
