Cocaine Blues translation of lyrics

English translation of Cocaine Blues by Johnny Cash
He said come on you dirty hack into that district court.
Into the courtroom my trial began,
Where I was handled by twelve honest men,
Just before the jury started out,
I saw that little judge commence to look about.
In about five minutes in walked a man,
Holding the verdict in his right hand,
The verdict read in the first degree,
I hollered Lordy, Lordy have mercy on me.
The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen,
Ninety nine years in the Folsom Pen,
Ninety nine years underneath that ground,
I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down.
Come on you gotta listen unto me,
Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be.
