Holloway Jail  The Kinks

Kinks Muswell Hillbillies
They took my bab[Am]y [(F] to Ho[G)]lloway jail,[Am] [Am] [G] [Am]
They took my bab[G]y, [F] down Holloway [Am]jail,
She was a lady w[C]hen she went in[(G], [--] [D7)]
Am (F G) Am (Am G Am Am G Am x10
Now she's in jail, and it's giving me hell.
Am (F G) Am (Am G Am x 2)
She was just succeeding in the city,
Am (F G) Am (Am G Am x2)
She was just beginning to excel,
And then a sp[C]iv named Frankie Sime[G]s
Led her to[C] a life of cri[D7]me,
And led h[D7]er on the downw[G]ard trail. [C]
[Am]Frankie came home l[(F]ate from work one [G)]evening, [Am] [Am] [G] [Am]
[Am]The C.I.D. were hot[(F] on hi[G)]s trail, [Am] [Am] [G] [Am]
Frankie promi[C]sed everyth[G]ing,
And then he went[C] and turned her in, [D7]
She went a[D7]nd took the rap f[G]or him[C]
Now she's impale[G]d in Holloway jai[Am]l.
They took my bab[Am]y, down [(F]Holloway j[G)]ail, [Am]
They took my bab[G]y [F] to Holloway jail[Am]
There ain't no p[C]ity, there ain't no bail[(G---D7)],
And she assures[Am] me [(F] that it's [G)]living hell. [Am] [(Am] [G] [Am)]
[Am]She was young and[(F] ever[G)] so pretty[Am], [Am] [G] [Am]
[Am]Now she looks so [(F]old a[G)]nd pale[Am], [Am] [G] [Am]
She neve[C]r sees the da[G]y,
She wast[C]es her life away[D7],
[D7]Sitting in that [G]prison c[C]ell.
They took my bab[Am]y [(F] to Hollo[G)]way jai[Am]l, [G] [Am]
They locked my baby [G] in [F]Holloway jail[Am], [G] [Am]
She was a lady wh[C]en she went in, [(G] [--] [D7)]
Now she's in jai[Am]l, and[F] it's givi[G]ng me he[Am]ll. [Am] [G] [Am]
She's impale[G]d, in Holloway jail.[Am]
