GRATEFUL DEAD VIOLA LEE BLUES 12/1/66 LYRICS

The judge decreed it, the clerk he wrote it
Clerk he wrote it down indeed-e
Judge decreed it, clerk he wrote it down
Give you this jail sentence you'll be Nashville bound

Some got six month some got one solid.
Some got one solid year indeed-e
Some got six month some got one solid
But me and my buddies all got lifetime here

I wrote a letter I mailed in the
Mailed it on the air indeed-e
I wrote a letter I mailed in the air
You may know by that I've got a friend somewhere
