Parchment Farm Revisited

 

Verse 1

Hey little darlin’ don’t you grieve me

I’ll do things to make you sing

But a combination of female planning

Got me in the place I’m in

Cos I’m the victim of a perfect crime

She stole my heart now I’m doing time

 

Chorus

One night alone with that girl

One touch of her sweet hand

One night alone with that girl

And you’ll break rocks on Parchment Farm

 

Verse 2

Now something else has got thinking

Why I’d hand my soul to you

Can it be your charms and graces

Make me young and act the fool

I’m the victim of a perfect crime

She stole my heart now I’m doing time

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

I’m a writing letter to my baby

From three stone walls and a jailhouse door

Forty more years I got to stay here

Cos she shot a man at her back door

I’m the victim of a perfect crime

She stole my heart now I’m doing time

 

Chorus

 

Now I break rocks on Parchment Farm

Wake me up at the break of dawn

Never did see that girl no more

Cos now I break rocks on Parchment Farm  

I break rocks on Parchment Farm
