Okie

Okie's In The Pokie

Jimmy Patton

(J. Patton, SIMS 117, 1960)

Well, Okie's in the pokie, doin' lots of time
Okie's in the pokie for committin' a crime
Sheriff caught him out with Jezebel
He threw poor Okie in the county jail
He didn't know the custom was a-talking to her pa
Okie didn't know he was a breakin' the law
He just up and took her across the line
Okie's in the pokie, doin' lots of time
Bad boy!

Well, Okie got caught at a dance one night
They booked him on a charge of startin' a fight
Somebody called eight-nine-one-naught
And that's how poor Okie got caught
He thought he was right, but he must have been wrong
Now Okie's in the pokie, just a singin' a song
Jezebel said, she was his teenage queen
Okie's in the pokie, wearin' jailhouse jeans
Bad boy!

Well, Okie got caught at a dance one night
They booked him on a charge of startin' a fight
Somebody called eight-nine-one-naught
And that's how poor Okie got caught
He thought he was right, but he must have been wrong
'Cause Okie's in the pokie, just a singin' a song
Jezebel said, she was his teenage queen
Now Okie's in the pokie, wearin' jailhouse jeans
Bad boy!

Well, Okie's in the pokie, doin' lots of time
Okie's in the pokie for committin' a crime
Sheriff caught him out with Jezebel
He threw poor Okie in the county jail
He didn't know the custom was a-talking to her pa
Okie didn't know he was a breakin' the law
He just up and took her across the line
Now Okie's in the pokie, doin' lots of time
Bad boy!

He's a bad boy!
He's a bad boy!
