One of the first blues I wrote in the 70's - written for a blues harp accompianment. I've never been in prison, but I did spend the last year of my military service on isolated duty on Adak, Alaska, so I know how it is to miss civilization and be completely confined.
Key of E
Goin' home babe, been in prison way too long, (2X)
just be waitin' at the station,
don't you know I wanna sing my song.
Want good whiskey baby, lots of things I want to do, (2X)
gonna hang my hat on your bedpost,
gonna spend some time with you.
Call my friends, babe, everybody know the news, (2X)
gonna have a party at my house,
ain't gonna have these prison blues.
