      Eb             Bb
I was walking in the street
       F                   C
When a brick hit me in the ear
       Eb                Bb
It was wrapped in toilet paper
         F                      C
Saying, "please, get us out of here."
  F                          
I looked toward the prison
                                 C
I saw the pains, heard the women wail
              Eb                     Bb
I thought, "tonight, you're alright, boy,"
          F                    Bb6  Gm7 |F/C  C C  [repeat intro]
There's a riot in the female jail

               G5 G5 G6 G6 ...
They've broken out 
Storming the town again
They're up and down
Their plainclothes just can't earn them a win

               G
They've been defiled
               Am
They've been denied
               Bm        Csus4
They've been deprived
                        Bb6  Gm7 |F/C  C C  [repeat intro]
And they're looking for me

I ran right up to the gates
So that I could be the first one raped
I was there when they brung class here [?]
And I got the whole show taped

I carried welsh [?], sand and whiskey
To seduce all the prettiest tails
I thought, tonight, I'm alright, boy
There's a riot in the female jail

They've broken out
Storming the town
Went up and down
They been inside, just can't be run away

They've been defiled
They've been denied
They've been deprived
And they're looking for me

[bridge]
G          G6          G         G6
All of the sudden they came through
C                       
Followed by the latest screws
Bb                         F       
Don't mind the screws they screw to
Bb                       F        G   C   F/C C   F/C C 
  They keep losing their blues

I was the first in line
And I got carried to my dream come true
Then the fire when out
And they started to round up a girl or two

Tomorrow I'll be cleaning their windows
With my lover up there
Passing hacksaw blades and keys to the...

F
Ladies in the female
F
Cold, lonely female
F
Ladies in the female
F                    Bb6  Gm7 |F/C  C C  [repeat intro to end]
Ladies in the female jail

Oh yeah..
