(additional Lyrics) (not done by Steve Earle)

My good gal loves me
everybody knows
and she paid a 
hundred cash dollars
just for me a suit of clothes

She come to the joint
a .44 in each hand
She said stand aside
all you women and men
cause I'm lookin' for my man

repeat verse #1 and tag #1

now you'll find my name
on the back of my shirt
In a Tennesse chain gang
they sure make me work
