Lyrics - Jailbreak

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the album Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Recorded at Albert Studios, Sydney, NSW, Australia

Released in 1976

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

There was a friend of mine on murder
And the judge's gavel fell
Jury found him guilty
Gave him, sixteen years in hell
He said : "I ain't spending my life here
I ain't living alone
Ain't breaking no rocks on the chain gang
I'm breakin' out and headin' home
Gonna make a jailbreak
And I'm lookin' towards the sky, eh
I'm gonna make a jailbreak
Oh how I wish that I could fly"

All in the name of liberty
All in the name of liberty
Got to be free

Jailbreak, let me outta here
Jailbreak, sixteen years oh, hum
Jailbreak, had more than I can take
Jailbreak, yeah

He said he'd, seen his lady being fooled with -
By another man
She was down and he was up
He had a gun in his hand
Bullets started flying everywhere
People started to scream
Big man lying on the ground
With a hole in his body
Where his life had been
But it was -

All in the name of liberty
All in the name of liberty
Ooh I got to be free

Jailbreak, I got to break out
(Out of here)


Heartbeats, they were racin'
Freedom, he was chasin'
Spotlights, sirens, rifles, firin'
But he made it out -
With a bullet in his back
