about

This song is loosely inspired by characters from the show Orange is the New Black.

lyrics

She writes a letter, and then another
She writes another, another letter
They all tell her they feel for her
Such a waste of law enforcement resources

And when should they arrive
In time for visiting hours?
And what should they bring to see her
Does the prison allow flowers?

She gets a letter, and then another
From another, another sender
They all tell her they’re no stranger to danger
Loyal to a fault and always hit their mark

And what does she want or need
They’ll stock her commissary
There’s just one thing: could she
Promise to put in a good word when she’s released?

She writes a letter, and then another
She writes a letter to all the up and comers
Hello boys I owe you a thank you
For the simple little luxuries I’ve put to use
Piece of cake to find a guard to seduce

But as for the good word with the boss, I’m sorry
I’ll have nothing to do with it
I’ll be gone for good, wish me good luck
That I’ll be home soon

It’s just not the home I know
I guess I’ll be on the road
Or maybe I’ll take a boat
See the new world and the old
Me this new girl, in from the cold

I’ll be gone for good, wish me good luck
That I’m running home
I’ll be gone for good, wish me good luck
That I’ll find home soon
