lyrics

Jailbird
Words & Music J.P. Mesker

I travelled down the road alone
Mindin’ my own, my own affairs
Got no worry, got no care in the world
Everything was safe & sound
Then the law came round
Turned it all upside down

Now I’m a Jailbird
I’ve got a cage to call my own
A Jailbird
Not a lot of space where I can roam
Spread a wing and get some air
You know, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Life treats you unfair

Don’t know where they came from
Don’t know what I done
They put chains on me, they done me wrong
They done me wrong
I got a free ride to the bighouse
Didn’t take them very long

When I take a look at myself
I see an honest, kind and law abiding man
But I may have broke some rules
This time the striped pyama’s don’t belong to me, oh no
They’re somebody else ‘s
I’m as innocent as I’m a fool

I swear I didn’t do it, didn’t do nothing at all
I swear I didn’t do it, i’m just here to take the fall
There’s no free get out of jailcards
I’m straight out o’ luck
They’re gonna keep me here forever
They will never let me walk
