Johnny Cash - Jacob Green lyrics

Jacob Green got busted for possession Next morning early he appeared in court But he was sent to jail to wait to be trialed at some later date Next morning early, there came a sad report At the jail they took away his clothes to shame him And to make sure Jacob Green had no pride left They cut of all his hair today they found him hanging there Afraid to face the day he k**ed himself It happened yesterday and if you turn your head away Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun Not only Jacob Green, but many more you've never seen It could be someone that you love gets done Like Jacob Green got done It could be someone that you love gets done Like Jacob Green got done Jacob's father hired a team of lawyers Inspections and long inquiries were held The sheriff then retired and the papers said two guards were fired They put a brand new coat of paint on Jacob's cell But like a tomb that looks so white and shiny Inside you'll find corruption never seen And somewhere out there tonight in a dirty cell without a light There will be locked up another Jacob Green It happened yesterday and if you turn your head away Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun Not only Jacob Green, but many more you've never seen It could be someone that you love gets done Like Jacob Green got done It could be someone that you love gets done Like Jacob Green got done
