lyrics

My name is Jack Taylor
I'm twenty five years old
I took my father's life
Now my freedom's sold
I sit behind these bars
Every night and day
Sawed off shotgun
Blew my life away

I see you standing there
In your life so straight
What you know of love
What you know of hate
Just like this cell
Don't mean shit to me
My whole life
I ain't been free

See this tattoo here
On my right arm
Yeah, you fuck with me
My boys will come
and do you harm
And I don't care
What you say I am
You got to live here
You do what you can

Sometimes yes
I think of her
But I best forget
It'll only get me hurt
I turn my heart
I turn my mind to steel
The days roll on
And I don't feel

Twenty years that man
He beat his wife
Twenty years that man
He destroyed a life
I don't care
When you say I'm wrong
I know what I did
I know my love was strong

My name is Jack Taylor
I'm twenty five years old
I took my father's life
Now my freedom's sold
I sit behind these bars
Every night and day
Sawed off shotgun
Blew our lives away
