I woke up on a cement floor this mornin'
My head felt like somebody been walkin' on it
I don't know how I got here don't remember nothin' at all
But if I done all the things that they say I did
Well I sure musta had a ball

'Cause in 30 more days
I'm goin' back home to see that gal of mine
But the wichita jail is a long long way
From theTupelo county line
I gotta do my time

Well I ain't got a cent of the money I had I spent it
Shirts tore, my shoes got a big hole in it
Theres a king size knot on the side of my head
And I got one big black eye
But brother if you think I look bad
You oughtta see that other guy

Cause in 30 more days
I'm goin' back home to see that gal of mine
But the wichita jail is a long long way
From theTupelo county line
I gotta do my time

Well this nine pound hammer feels like it weighs a ton
Makin' lil ones outta big ones in this red hot Kansas sun
I just hope I can make it 30 more days
And get out of this mess I'm in
And if I ever get back to Mississippi
I ain't ever gonna leave again

'Cause in 30 more days
I'm goin' back home to see that gal of mine
But the wichita jail is a long long way
From theTupelo county line
I gotta do my time

I gotta do my time
I gotta do my time
I gotta do my time
