Intro

Verse 1

JGacob Green got busted for possession next morning early he appeared in cDourt But he was sCent to jail to wait to be trialed Gat some later dCate Next Gmorning early, there came a sad repDort At the Gjail they took away his clothes to shame him and to make sure Jacob Green had no pride Dleft They Ccut of all his hair Today they Gfound him hanging Cthere afraGid to face the Dday he killed hiGmself

Chorus

It hCappened yesterdDay, and if you tCurn your head awGay Somewhere in some dirty hole tChat scene will be reDrun Not Conly Jacob GDreen, but many Cmore you've never Gseen It could be someone that you Clove gets Gdone like JDacob Green got Gdone It could be someone that you Clove gets Gdone like JDacob Green got Gdone

Verse 2

Jacobs father hired a team of lawyers inspections and long inquiries were held The sheriff then retired and the papers said two guards were fired They put a brand new coat of paint on Jacob's cell But like a tomb that looks so white and shiny inside you'll find corruption never seen And somewhere out there tonight In a dirty cell without a light There will be locked up another Jacob Green

Chorus

End G
