'74 Jailbreak

JAILBREAK (1976)

(Bon Scott, Angus & Malcolm Young)

 

There was a friend of mine on murder

And the judge's gave a fell,

Jury found him guilty,

Gave him sixteen years in hell.

He said I ain't spending my life here

I ain't living alone

Ain't breaking no rocks on the chain gang,

I'm breaking out and headin' home.

 

Gonna make a Jailbreak

And I'm looking towards the sky,

I'm gonna make a Jailbreak

Oh, I wish I could fly.

 

All in the name of liberty

All in the name of liberty

Just set me free

 

Jailbreak, let me out of here

Jailbreak, sixteen years

Jailbreak, had more than I can take

Jailbreak, yeah

 

He said he'd seen his lady being fooled with

By another man

She was down and he was up

He had a gun in his hand.

Bullets started flying everywhere

And people started to scream

Big man lying on the ground

With a hole in his body

Where his life had been

But it was

 

All in the name of liberty

All in the name of liberty

I got to be free

 

Jailbreak, Jailbreak

I got to break out

Out of here.

 

Heartbeats they were racin',

Freedom he was chasin',

Spotlights, sirens, rifles, firing,

But he made it out

With a bullet in his back

 

YOU AIN'T GOT A HOLD ON ME (1974)

(Bon Scott, Malcolm & Angus Young)

 

You can roll me round your finger

You can roll me if I'm blind

You can roll me tally ho ho,

I'm easy rollin' kind.

But don't think I'm facin' down hill,

'Cause you'll soon see,

You'll lose your grip and slip,

'Cause you ain't got a hold on me.

 

You ain't got a hold on me,

You ain't got a hold on me,

Why don't you let me free,

"Cause you ain't got a hold on me

 

You can take me to your bedroom,

You can take me to your heart,

You can take me to a climax,

I won't fall apart.

But don't count on me givin' it

All back to you,

Just because I'm hooked on livin'

Doesn't mean I'm hooked on livin'

Doesn't mean I'm hooked on you.

 

SHOW BUSINESS (1974)

(Bon Scott, Angus & Malcolm Young)

 

You learn to sing,

You learn to play,

Why don't the businessmen

Ever learn to pay.

That's show business,

Show business

Show business

That's the way it goes.

 

You play in halls,

You play in bars,

You're climbin' walls

Chasin' stars.

 

You pay the men

You pay your dues

When it's all gone

You sing the blues.

 

You wanna roll

You wanna rock

But you find it hard

If your guitar's in hack.

 

We smoke our butt's

they smoke cigars

We drown in debt

They drown in bars

 

You pull a chick

Take her home

no use, man,

You're worn out to the bone.

 

SOUL STRIPPER (1974)

(Malcolm & Angus Young)

 

Well, I met her in the garden,

Underneath that apple tree,

Sitting with a handful of flowers,

Looking as cool as can be.

We talked away a couple of hours

Then she laid her hand on my lap,

Oh, I thought I got to be dreaming,

I didn't know I fell in her trap.

 

Then she made me say things I didn't want to

Say,

Then she made me play games I didn't want

to play.

She was a soul stripper, she took my heart,

Soul Stripper, and tore me apart.

 

She started moving nice and easy

Slowly getting into my spine

Killing of this nice little feeling

Ooooh, everyone she could find.

And when she had me hollow and naked.

That's when she put me down

Pulled out a knife and flashed it before me

Stuck it and turned it around.

 

BABY PLEASE DON'T GO (1976)

(Joe Williams)

 

Baby please don't go

Baby please don't go

Baby please don't go down New Orleans

You know I love you so

Baby please don't go

 

When the man done gone

When the man done gone

When the man done gone down the county

Farm

He got the shackles on

Baby please don't go

Don't leave me

 

I'll be a dog

I'll be a dog

I'll be a dog kiss your way down here

When you walk along

Baby please don't go.
