George Hamilton IV - Wall Lyrics

George Hamilton IV Lyrics

Wall Lyrics
There's a lot of strange men in cell Block 10 but the strangest of them all

Was a friend of mine who just spent his time staring at the wall

(Staring at the wall)

In his hand was a note that his gal had wrote and it proved that crime don't pay

Twas the very same gal he robbed and stole for name in her weddin' day

(Name in her weddin' day)

As he looked at the wall so strong and tall I could hear him softly curse

Nobody a tall ever climbed that wall but I'm gonna be the first

(I'm gonna be the first)

[ ac.guitar ]

The warden walked by and said son don't try I would hate to see you fall

There is no doubt they would carry you out if you ever touch that wall

(Ever touch that wall )

A year's gone by since he made his try but I can still recall

How hard he tried and the way he died but he never made that wall

(Never made that wall)

There's never been a man ever shook this can but I know a man who tried

The newspapers called it a jailbreak plan but I know it was suicide

Know it was suicide
