G, C

CHORUS 1


G                     C            G                   C
Hid a Batch In Fresco, I could't score a job
G                   C                                 G                   C
So I did the next best thing, and I learned how to rob
G                              C                   G                   C
I took that train to Houston, but i couldn't get away
              G                                C                         G               
   C
From the five and dime, about that time the constable would say


CHORUS
G              C                  G           C            ***Noddley Doodly Doo
Come on Down To the Penitentiary
G                    C              G                         C
Oh Mama the law came crashin' down on me

****You get the idea on the chords


Whoo who hooooooo, whooo who hoooooo

Whoo who hooooooo, whooo who hoooooo

VERSE 2

Playing Stud in the Evening, Solitary Nights

Leons got the cigarettes and Capone has got the light

Now I shiftin' squares, with the man from Arkansas

He took my rook oh lord and my kings about to fall

CHORUS

Come on down To the Penitentiary

Oh mama the law came crashing down on me

Whoo who hooooooo, whooo who hoooooo

Whoo who hooooooo, whooo who hoooooo


BRIDGE/Guitar Solo

Keep Repeating the G and C chords, if you want to pick out the lead, its really easy 
stuff. I dont feel the need to tab out any of it. This is mainly a chord reference to learn 
the song structure and the chords....all of two of them :)

VERSE 3

And I'm calling from a pay phone

Down around Lawrence bend

Got me a pardon son

Gonna do it all again


OUTRO CHORUS, REPEAT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU FEEL IS NEEDED.

Come on down To the Penitentiary
Oh mama the law came crashing down on me
