From the alehouse to the jailhouse

In complimenting a legal colleague on a client acquittal:

When I am going from the alehouse to the jailhouse, you will certainly be on my mind.

Wondered where that phrase came from. Did search and realized it was impressed in memory, courtesy of Julie Driscoll’s arrangement of a traditional song, “When I Was A Young Girl”, from the Streetnoise album.

Also by Nina Simone and Odetta.

Nina Simone:

Odetta, with more folk:

Know where you’re going; know where you’ve been.
