On A Monday
Traditional - Leadbelly - adopted by J.A. & A Lomax

On a Monday, Monday I was arrested
On a Tuesday looked up in jail
On a We'n'sday my trail was attested
On a Thursday nobody wouldn't go my bail

Well, it's all (Yes I am) almost done (3x)
And I ain't gonna ring them yellow women's door bells

Take these stripes, stripes from around my shoulders
Take these chains, chains from around my legs
Lord, these stripes, stripes don't worry me
But these chains, chains is about to kill me dead

Well, it's all, almost done (3x)
And I ain't gonna ring them yellow women's door bells

On a Saturday me an' my baby went a-walkin'
On a Sunday she knocked me out o' doors
On a Monday we were sittin' down a-talkin'
On a Tuesday she had pawned all o' my clothes
