The Lyrics

Well I used to be on the railroad crew
Working for the company
Came in drunk one day and lost my job
Poor poor pitiful me

Poor poor pitiful me
Held in Cell Block E
Big strong boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me

Well I robbed a bank out in Hollywood
Only got myself to blame
Now I'm stuck in here; locked up for good
Got me a new name
Yes I'm stuck here with boys from the 'hood
I think they've confused my gender
They want to..... oh my good gawd!
Now I've got one quite sore ender

Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor pitiful me
Crack-pipe boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me

Well I met Bubba in the shower room - was
Out to do me harm-a
He picked me up and he threw me down
I said, "Please don't hurt me Mama"

Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor pitiful me
Bubba's boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me

Held in Cell Block E
Gov'ner's eyein' up me
I hate Cell Block E
They want to bugger me
Oh please put me
Down in solitary

Your best one guys - I'm sure these are the lyrics Warren Zevon wishes he has used.
