There was a friend of mine on murder
Jury found him guilty
He said "I ain't spending my life here
Ain't breaking no rocks on the chain gang

And I'm lookin' towards the sky
Oh, how I wish that I could fly
All in the name of liberty
Got to be free
Jailbreak, let me out of here
Jailbreak, had more than I can take

By another man
He had a gun in his hand
And people started to scream
With a hole in his body
But it was
All in the name of liberty
I got to be free
Jailbreak, jailbreak
Out of here
Heartbeats they were racin'
Spotlights, sirens, rifles firing
With a bullet in his back
