Merle Haggard I'll Break Out Again Tonight Lyrics

Last updated: 02/24/2005 11:00:00 AM

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 at home again
These walls and bars can't hold a dreamin' man so I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body but not my mind and I'll break out again tonight
[ guitar - steel ]
The warden thinks I'm in for life cause all he's ever seen me wear is stripes
He don't know bout my blue suit and my tie that I wear when I'm with you each night
These walls and bars...
And I'll break out again tonight
