"The Walls of a Prison"

There's alot of strange men in cellblock ten

But the strangest of em' all

Was a friend of mine who spent his time

Starin at the wall...

Starin at the wall...



In his hand was a note that his gal had wrote

Proving crime don't pay

Was the very same gal he robbed and stole for

Wanting thier wedding day...

Wanting thier wedding day...



As he looked at the wall

So strong and tall

I heard him softely curse

Nobody at all ever climed that wall

But I'm gonna be the first...

I'm gonna be the first...



Then the warden walked by and said son don't try

I'd hate to see you fall

Cause there is no doubt they'll carry you out

If you ever touch that wall...

If you ever touch that wall...



Well a years gone by since he made his try

But I can still recall

How hard he tried and the way he died

But he never made that wall...

He never made that wall...



Well there's never been a man who shook this camp

But I knew a man who tried

The newspapers called it a jailbreak plan

But I know it was sucide...

I know it was sucide...
