Prison Bound

This song is by Social Distortion and appears on the album Prison Bound (1988).

Well, I'm goin' to a place
Where the tough guys go
And come out even tougher
A place where a man don't show his feelings
A place where a man don't cry
They say I'm being punished
And they say I can be reformed
But some day I'll return
Did they really think that
This time it would work?

You know all along it wouldn't

Oh, I'm prison bound
I did a crime
One too many times
It's on the outskirts of town
By the railroad tracks
Where the country moon shines
Oh, I'm prison bound
Tell my girl
I'll be back one day
Oh, I'm prison bound
I may never know any other way
(Any other way)

Well, they take away my freedom
Of expression or action
Johnny says I'll walk the line
With three hots and a cot
And a lot of talk
With lock up
Concrete and steel

Well it's cold and it's clammy
Man, it's colder than a pimp's heart
But I gotta do my time
There's a lesson to be learned here
But what a price to pay

You know, I may never learn

Oh, I'm prison bound
I did a crime
One two many times
It's on the outskirts of town
By the railroad tracks
Where the country moon shines
Oh, I'm prison bound
Tell my girl
I'll be back one day
Oh, I'm prison bound
I may never know any other way
(Any other way)
