Jailhouse Tears - Lucinda Williams

[Chorus:]
I'm crying, jailhouse tears
And I've been trying all these years
Been trying to ride things out
But now I'm shifting gears
And we're both crying jailhouse tears

They say I broke the law
Now everything is broken down
Babe I know what I saw
I know you went downtown.

I went to the corner
To get a cold six pack
You're a drunk you're a stoner
You never came back.

They locked me up
And you locked me out
You tried to steal my truck, but
That's not what this is about

I used to be a user
But now I'm all out of stuff
You're a 3 time loser
You're all f_cked up

[Chorus:]
He and She together
I'm crying, jailhouse tears
And I've been trying all these years
Been trying to ride things out
But now I'm shifting gears
And we're both crying jailhouse tears

I'll prove it to you somehow
I'm done with every bit
Look at me, I'm clean now

You're so full of sh_t
I swear I will tell all
Look in my dresser drawers

Now I'm behind the 8-ball
You're behind bars.
