Subject: Lyr Req: Lyrics for Rex Griffin 'Ready to Reform'
I'm getting most of it, but in the third verse there's a line ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ae0bRnTVNPE

I got in jail on Christmas day
Too much gin and wine
I think I'm 'bout ready to obey the laws
If get free then I'll believe in Santa Claus
I mean, I'm ready to reform.

There's just one thing I'm thankful for
I've got no bills to pay
But the fleas and the cooties sure bite hard
I done quit scratchin' cause I'm too darn tired
I mean, I'm ready to reform.

Man in his BVDs goin' down the street
No hat on his head, no shoes on his foot
You oughta seen them women ???
I thought I heard 'em say, "What kind of man is that?"
I mean, I'm ready to reform.

Some sellin' whiskey, some sellin' beer
Some sellin' gin and wine
Some sellin' peaches to support their man
In fact some sellin' everything they can
I mean, I'm ready to reform.

When I get out of this calaboose
Gonna lay off beer and wine
I used to think water's made to wash your face
But that's all I'll be drinkin' when I leave this place
I mean, I'm ready to reform.
