I'm In Jail Again Mississippi Fred McDowell

Open D

Slow walking pace

Well bring me my food an' chow wow, wow wow, I'm in jail again. I said bring me my food an' chow wow, wow wow, I'm in jail again. And I'm gonna be here baby, goin' till my sentence ends.

Now won't somebody tell me wow, wow what I'm supposed ta' do. Well won't somebody tell me wow, wow what I'm supposed ta' do. Lord you know I wouldn't be her, lord you know if it weren't for you.

I'm beggin' Lord please have mercy wow, wow, wow on my wicked sole. I'm beggin' Lord please have mercy wow, wow, wow on my wicked sole. Lord I would not beseech you, Lord for all your weight in gold…... weight in gold, your weight in gold.

Slide guitar interlude.

Well bring me my food an' juice wow, wow, wow, I'm in jail again. Wow, bring me my food an' juice, wow, wow, wow, I'm in jail again. And I wouldn't be here baby Lord, until my sentence ends, my sentence ends.

Slide guitar ending.
