starkville city jail

Johnny Cash



 BbF7BbF7BbF7Bb
Well, I left my motel room, down at the Starkville Motel,
 F7BbF7BbF7BbF7Bb
 The town had gone to sleep and I was feelin' fairly well.
 Bb7EbBb7EbBb7EbBb7Eb
 I strolled along the sidewalk 'neath the sweet magnolia trees;
 F7BbF7BbF7BbF7Bb
was whistlin', pickin' flowers, swayin' in the southern breeze.
 FC7FC7FC7F
found myself surrounded; one policeman said: "That's him.
 EbBb7EbBb7EbBb7E
 Come along, wild flowerchild. Don't you know that it's two a.m."
 E7F
They're bound to get you.
 E7E
Cause they got a curfew.
 F#7FEbDdimF7Bb
And you go to the Starkville City jail. 
2. Well, they threw me in the car and started driving into town;
I said: "What the hell did I do?" He said: "Shut up and sit down."
Well they emptied out my pockets, took my pills and guitar picks.
I said: "Wait, my name is..." "Aw shut up." Well I sure was in a fix.
The sergeant put me in a cell, then he went home for the night;
I said: "Come back here, you so and so; I ain't bein' treated right."
Well they're bound to get you, cause they got a curfew,
And you go to the Starkville City Jail.
3. I started pacin' back and forth, and now and then I'd yell,
And kick my forty dollar shoes against the steel floor of my cell.
I'd walk awhile and kick awhile, and all night nobody came.
Then I sadly remembered that they didn't even take my name.
At 8 a.m. they let me out. I said: "Gimme them things of mine!"
They gave me a sneer and a guitar pick, and a yellow dandelion.
They're bound to get you, cause they got a curfew,
And you go to the Starkville City Jail.
