Columbus Stockade
Traditional - Woody Guthrie

Way down in Columbus Stockade
Want to be back in Tennessee
Way down in Columbus Stockade
Where my friends are back on me

You can go and leave me if you want to
Never let me cross your mind
In your heart you love another
Leave me, darling, I don’t mind

Way down in Columbus Stockade
Left me there and loose my mind
Thinking about my blue-eyed sunny
Pretty little gal that I left behind

Last night as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I woke, I was mistaken
I was peeping through the bars

Many hours with you I’ve rambled
Many nights with you I’ve spent alone
Now you’ve gone, you’ve gone and left me
And broken up our happy home
