Subject: RE: Origins: Boston Burglar
I learned this from my Dad. The same version as Charlie Noble's with minor changes to the last verse:

Oh you who have your freedom, pray keep it if you can
And don't go 'round the streets at night and break the laws of man.
For if you do you'll surely rue behind these bars like me.
I'm serving the sum of twenty one years in the penitentiary.
