Or be talkin' to the salesman 'bout that car an I say no
Jus to-be-back in Jonesbro-Georgia in that lonesome cottage home

An'-I-had-a-turn, I can't return Have a sister in Atlanta
An' beg her for her housin' never have my name on paper

Say a good god never make a man who cannot do
In this old sinful world it heartache showin'on a few

An' sometimes I will paint but not outdoors or all of the day
An' I don't have a car no more is it safe it now that I pray

Then I'll always drive a Corvette not the death row Cadillac
An' if they come to find us then I'm Dirty or I'm Jack

An' when they come at me gain cuff commutted this I fear
Cant-do-nothin kep trine kill me but I keep trine what ye hear.

If I could just undo one day back up her settin' sun
Be far from Alabama when that lousy wreck break down

That part's kind of revealing, and the first part is being sorted out to:

When I left Jonesb'ro Georgy, had love 'uns callin' me back
But I stubburn left for Texas in my death row Cadillac

An' on the way 'I shoulda stayed' keep Georgy on my mind
But moving thru the highways is sompin' that feel right

Now just outside of Birmingham my thermostat it blow
My thumb or sompin' dangerous walk 8 miles To and Fro

Found a-honky-tonk in Tulsa where they eye me with suspicion
So not to disappoint no one I leftT there with ouT Payin

I lay some late nights in Tulsa jail but every day I kneel
Yet them jailers kep' my money my-old Jonesb'ro-cottage they steal

When I roll it into Lubbock fill 'er-w' gift gasoline
Found a bargain lot an sold the lousy wreck it make me mean

I work some in the kich'n but gettin' to the Mission too late
Drunk-I try my hand at gamblin' an that gamblin' come to stay

I won my share of fast despare but I kep' my own place clean
Yet the people in that city see me like I some disgrace

An I remembrin' Oklahomia an' I never ever been burn twice
So I hit the police grab me when he find the heap I won

And I could've done Just Nuthin' an savin' me doin time
But Nogood is a given and I remembrin ' Tulsa time

Then my first time there in prison though I seen my share of jail
If you think it hard in prison it worse than life in hell

Had 2 or 3 diff'rent cellmates an' one of 'em he die
Say-he-need some medicine the prison say he lie

An da third one go to death row so dark afta his trial (lonesome)
Admitin' that he did it but it weren't like what they testify

I ax him what words he say when allowed his final breath
It's 'there never been a rich man in America put to death'

If I could just undo one day back up that settin' sun
Be back in Alabama when that lousy wreck break down

I was thinking they'd all be in twos, but it's nice that way, too. Thanks.

The longer part comes first, Áine. I'm wondering if these should be separate songs. It's shorter that way at least.

Michael, does Dirty (and you, on this one?) write these as poems or songs? I'm wondering if there's a tune for them. I hear blues - am I off the mark?

There's a tune for this one that's more rolling folk, Jeri. I'll try to get a submission of it to Bert at Mudcat Radio.

Dear MichaelAnthony,

I'm looking forward to hearing it. Please let us know if you're going to make this into two songs, or leave it together as one. And whichever you do, may I please include it(them) in the Mudcat Songbook? If I may, could you please let me know the title(s)?

Thanks in advance, your biggest Mudcat fan(!), Áine

As soon I started considering cutting out the part to make it shorter, I posted it...seems like in retrospect those parts turn out to be more interesting, but often not at the time and lots gets lost.

But anyway, I sent both parts of this song recorded on to Bert for consideration.
