Locked up my darlin’ in Allentown jail

Bakom galler

They locked up my darlin’ in Allentown jail, oh, oh, oh,
And no one has come forth to put up his bail, oh, oh, oh.
They say at the courthouse, he’ll never go free, never go free,
‘Cause he stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond to give, to give to me.
Somewhere in Allentown jail, her heart waits in Allentown jail.

Oh, well, I’ll dance for you, mister, I’ll sing you a song, oh, oh, oh,
But more than that, mister, would surely be wrong, oh, oh, oh.
But more than that, mister, would surely be wrong for can’t you see?
Her love stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond to give, to give to she.

You’ll find none like him though you search the world ’round, oh, oh, oh,
And that’s why I’ll need the best lawyer in town, oh, oh, oh.
I must find a lawyer, the best one in town for can’t you see? My love stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond to prove his love to she.
Somewhere in Allentown jail, her heart waits in Allentown jail.
Yeah, somewhere in Allentown jail. Somewhere in Allentown jail. Somewhere in Allentown jail.
