VERSE 1: Main Riff with lyrics
There was a friend of mine on murder
And the judge's gavel fell
Jury found him guilty
play Fill 1 instead of Main Riff for this measure (Verse 1 only):
Gave him sixteen years in hell
FILL 1:
detune this note by unwinding tuning peg

He said, I ain't spendin' my life here
I ain't livin' alone
Ain't breakin no rocks on the chain gang
I'm breakin' out and headin' home

I'm gonna make a Jailbreak
And I'm lookin' towards the sky
I'm gonna make a Jailbreak
Ah how I wish that I could fly

VERSE 2: Main Riff with lyrics
He said he'd seen his lady bein' fooled with
By another man
She was down and he was up
Had a gun in his hand
Uh...bullets started flyin' everywhere
N'people started to scream
Big man lyin' on the ground
With a hole in his body where his life had been
but it was all in the name of liberty
