21 Days In Jail - Magic Sam

21 Days In Jail

Magic Sam

(Dixon - Weaver, COBRA 5029, 1958)

Twenty-one nights of torture
Twenty-one nights of fear
Twenty-one days in jail
And nobody seems to care
Twenty-one days of torture
Twenty-one nights of fear
I got twenty-one days in jail
Nobody seems to care

Well, I'm waiting for your letter
Just a simple word or two
Then I know it won't be long
Till I'll be home with you
Twenty-one days of torture
Twenty-one nights of fear
I got twenty-one days in jail
Nobody seems to care
No-one cares... rock!

Well, I finally got your letter
You did what I wanted you to do
Now I know it won't be long
Till I'll be home with you
Twenty-one days of torture
Twenty-one nights of fear
I got twenty-one days in jail
Nobody seems to care
Ah, set me free!

Twenty-one days of torture
Twenty-one nights of fear
Twenty-one days in jail
Nobody seems to care
Twenty-one days of torture
Twenty-one nights of fear
I got twenty-one days in jail
Nobody seems to care
I got twenty-one days in jail
Nobody seems to care

As performed by Levi Dexter & The Ripchords
