Anyone know the lyrics and/or information on two eastern Canadian jail songs? (Who wrote them, when, etc)?

They are:

Pictou County jail (from Nova Scotia, starts something like 15 days in the Pictou county jail).

Prince County jail, (from western PEI, Summerside, starts something like "I'm spending my time in the Prince County jail) I suspect it is older than the above song.

If you joined as a member there are several members from Nova Scotia who could help you on this. Like George from Chubecto, Bee, and others.

Looks like "Pictou County Jail" was written by this fellow: Don Haggart .
No lyrics on his site, though.
