The song is written and sung from the perspective of a prison inmate, writing back home to his family. He tells of the lessons he's learned while incarcerated; the chorus tells the four main ones:

  1. "There ain't no good in an evil-hearted woman",
  2. "I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James",
  3. "You don't go writing hot checks down in Mississippi", and
  4. "There ain't no good chain gang".
