I”LL BREAK OUT AGAIN, TONIGHT

by Desmond Kelly ‘the Star of eLanka’

 

“Country-Music Star” Merle Haggard was probably in jail, when he decided to write this song. I have recorded a “Cover”, dedicated to him. The lyrics are self-explanatory. Tells the story.

“SLOWLY, THE LONG DAY TURNS TO NIGHT
AND SOON, THEY’LL TURN OUT THE PRISON LIGHTS
BUT, IN MY CELL I’M MAKING PLANS
TO BE WITH YOU AGAIN, TONIGHT

THESE WALLS & BARS CAN’T HOLD A DREAMING MAN
SO, I’LL BE THERE, TO TUCK THE BABIES IN
THEY CAN CHAIN MY BODY BUT NOT MY MIND
AND, I’LL BREAK OUT AGAIN, TONIGHT.

THE WARDEN THINKS I’M IN, FOR LIFE
COS, ALL HE’S EVER SEEN ME WEAR IS “STRIPES”
HE DON’T KNOW ABOUT MY BLUE SUIT & MY TIE
THAT I WEAR, WHEN I’M ALONE WITH YOU EACH NIGHT

THESE WALLS & BARS CAN’T HOLD A DREAMING MAN
SO, I’LL BE THERE, TO TUCK THE BABIES IN
THEY CAN CHAIN MY BODY BUT NOT MY MUBD
AND, I’LL BREAK OUT AGAIN, TONUGHT”

Rest in peace Merle. You were one of the greatest.

Desmond Kelly.
