Jailer, Bring Me Water

 


      

      Jailer, bring me water
      Jailer, bring me water
      Jailer, bring me water
      My throat is kind-a dry.

      Well, I never had me no money
      Never had me no money
      Never had me no money
      I ain’t that kind-a guy.

      Oh … jailer, bring me water
      Jailer, bring me water
      Jailer, bring me water
      My throat is kind-a dry

      I’m gonna work ‘til the good Lord calls me
      Be workin’ ‘til the good Lord calls me
      I’m gonna work until the good Lord calls me
      It'll be in the by and by.

      Oh … jailer, bring me water
      Jailer, bring me water
      Jailer, bring me water
      My throat is kind-a dry.

      Now … jailer, should ya see my baby
      Jailer, if ya see my baby
      Jailer, if ya see my baby
      Just tell her I said, "Good-bye."

      Everybody singin’ …

      Jailer …
         Jailer, bring me water
      Come on … jailer, bring me …
        Jailer, bring me water
      Come on … jailer, bring me …
        Jailer, bring me water
      Come on … jailer, bring me …
      My throat is kind-a dry.

      Ah … jailer, won’t ya bring me some ...
      Bring me water
      Jailer, won’t ya bring me some ...
      Bring me water
      Jailer, won’t ya bring me water
      My throat is kind-a dry.
