lyrics

Sweet Grass County

Oooooh, Sweet Grass County Jail
Where my boyfriend had to pay my bail

Had a fight in Kansas City
I can tell you it wasn’t pretty
Maybe, it was a little loud
I had a point and so did he
Just wanted to make the other see
The correct point of view

So louder and louder and louder it took
The hour of night, didn’t even look
But around 3, there was a knock
My partner in crime went to the door
I went to the john
Not knowing what’s about to happen

Upon return there were two cops
Their faces stern, guns were cocked
Said, ‘ma’am what have you done?’
I followed their eyes to the floor
I couldn’t say one word more
For on that floor there was a gun

Was small and black and looking mean
It was the silliest thing I’d ever seen
For that mean ol’ thing it was my lighter
They grabbed my left arm and my right
I didn’t put up much of a fight
Knowing full well where I’d spend the night

Chorus:

Was put in stripes and paper shoes
Took my picture, then I got the news
That I’d be in a cell with 12 angry gals
Put me inside and locked the door
I gazed to the dirty floor
Doing my best not to be seen

I got one question then the next
They heard my story and were perplexed
Said in here you’re one of us
