Suffet Lyr Req: Worried Man Blues (39) RE: Lyr Req: Worried man blues 13 Sep 10


Fine or time?

Most singers have the main character ask the judge: What's gonna be my fine? That doesn't make much sense when discussing an offense serious enough to merit a 21 year sentence. So I always have the protagonist ask: What's gonna be my time?

Doesn't that make better sense? I'm sure I'm not the only one who sings it that way.
