I’m Going to Get My Baby Out of Jail

Bernice Johnson Reagon
Language: English



I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail
She said she wasn’t guilty, and she wouldn’t pay no bail
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

My baby wouldn’t pay her fine
My baby wouldn’t pay her fine
She said she wasn’t guilty and she wouldn’t pay one dime
But I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

I must have walked a valley on my floor
I must have walked a valley on my floor
Just waitin’ for her footsteps and her knockin’ at my door
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

They phoned and said the word had come today
They phoned and said the word had come today
I’m meeting at the courthouse all the lawyers right away
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

The highest courts they honored her appeal
The highest courts they honored her appeal
Said she wasn’t guilty, she got a dirty deal
Oh, I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

Every police in this county knows her name
Every police in this county knows her name
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail
Oh, I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

Just one more thing workin’ on my mind
Just one more thing workin’ on my mind
High court costs and lawyer fees ain’t something like a fine
Goin’ to get my baby outa jail

I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail
She said she wasn’t guilty, and she wouldn’t pay no bail
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

I must have walked a valley on my floor
I must have walked a valley on my floor
Just waitin’ for her footsteps and her knockin’ at my door
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail

Just one more thing workin’ on my mind
Just one more thing workin’ on my mind
High court costs and lawyer fees ain’t something like a fine
I’m goin’ to get my baby outa jail
