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

I'm gonna make a jailbreak
And I'm lookin' towards the sky
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 out of here
Jailbreak
Sixteen years
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
I got to be free

Jailbreak
Jailbreak
I got to break out
Out of here

Heartbeats
They were racin'
Freedom
He was chasin'
Spotlights
Sirens
Rifles firing
But he made it out
With a bullet in his back
