I'LL BREAK OUT AGAIN TONIGHT
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Words and music by S. Schaffer and A. L. Owens
[C] Slowly the long day turns to night
And soon they'll turn out the prison [G7] lights
But in my cell I'm making plans
To be with you at home a-[C] gain.
[C] These walls and bars can't hold a [G7] dreamin' man
So I'll be home to tuck the [F] babies [C] in
They can chain my body but not my [G7] mind
And I'll break out again, to-[C] night.
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.
TAG: And [G7] I'll break out again, to-[C] night.
