Got no laces for my shoes
     A7
I'm sittin here in prison, babe
                        E7

     B7                        B7- Bb7-
I'm crying in my dinner
A7                                     E7

2. The monkey runs crazy, babe
How lucky yes indeed!
Hoo Da Roo's the baby's name
Yeah, they're lucky, yes indeed!
Yeah, they're walkin' on the tree limbs
doesn't make room for those with weed


3. Yeah, I took it for granted, babe
They pretend that we're all free
Yeah, I took it for granted, babe
But the cops did not agree
Yeah, they broke into my house one night
and incarcerated me


4. Sittin here in prison
I guess I got to pay my dues
I'm sittin here in prison
Said, I guess I got to pay my dues
Yeah, I'm cryin in the jailhouse
with those Mary Jauna blues


5. I'm cryin here in prison
Got no laces for my shoes
yeah, I'm cryin here in prison, babe
I ain't got no better news
I'm cryin here in prison
with those Mary Juana blues
