Jailbreak
There was a friend of mine on murder
And the judge's gavel fell
The jury found him guilty
Gave him sixteen years in Hell
He said I ain't spendin' my life here
I ain't ah-livin' alone
Ain't breakin' no rocks on the chain gang
I'm breakin' out and headin' home

Gonna make a jailbreak
And I'm lookin' towards the sky
Gonna make a jailbreak
And I wish that I could fly

It's all in the name of liberty
All in the name of liberty
Oh yeah
You just got to be free

Jailbreak
Had more than I can take
Jailbreak
Sixteen years
Jailbreak
You gotta get me outta here
Jailbreak, yeah

He said he'd
Seen his woman being fooled with
By another man
She was down
He was up
He had a gun in his hand
Many bullets start flyin' everywhere
And the people start to scream
A-why's a big man lying on the ground
With a hole in his body
Where his life had been?

Was all in the name of liberty
Oh yeah
All in the name of liberty
Oh yeah
You just got to be free

Jailbreak
Oh yeah
Jailbreak
You got to be free

Heartbeats
They were racin'
Freedom
Mmm, he was chasing
Spotlights
Sirens
Rifles
Firing
But he made it out
With a bullet in his
Back!

Jailbreak
Had more than I can take
Jailbreak
Sixteen years
Jailbreak
You gotta get me outta here
Jailbreak

Throw away the key
Jailbreak
Had more than I can take
Jailbreak
Get me outta here!

Jailbreak, whoa!

Jailbreak, whoa!
