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



BRIDGE:  main riff with lyrics

     I'm gonna make a Jailbreak

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
   A5                    D5 D5 D5 D5    A5               D5 D5 D5 D5
