ON A MONDAY (Huddie Ledbetter) Recorded by: Ry Cooder; Lonnie Donnegan; Arlo Guthrie; Huddie Ledbetter (Leadbelly); Dave Plaehn; Pete Seeger; Doc Watson. On a Monday, I was arrested On a Tuesday, I was locked up in jail On a Wednesday, my trial was attested On a Thursday, nobody would go my bail Almost done, I'm almost done, almost done And I ain't gonna bring them yellow women no pail Take these stripes, stripes from around my shoulder Take these chains, these chains from around my legs Lord, these stripes, it sure don't worry me But these chains, these chain's gonna kill me dead Yes, I'm almost done, almost done, almost done And I ain't gonna bring them yellow women no pail On Friday, my baby went a-walking On a Saturday, she locked me outa the door On a Sunday, we were sitting down a-talking On a Monday, she pawned all of my clothes (Contributed by Nancy - July 2003)
