Stone Walls

Jim Croce

It's been too many years inside this prison

Too many years just for one little fight

He got what was comin'

And I think I served enough time

I'm goin' home tonight

That stone looks mighty cold

And the guard that walks that wall

Is just waitin' to get a convict in his sights

But if I can clear the top

You can bet I'll never stop

Cause I'm goin' home tonight


Because stone walls do a prison

Make iron bars a cage

Any man who says they don't

Never been inside

Cause in time the bars get closer

And at night the walls grow tighter

Do you feel like there's a shackle around your mind?

Now those guards are on my tail

I can hear those sirens wail

But I know that I'll get away and that I'll be alright

Cause I'd rather live on the run

Stand free in the morning sun

Then to spend another lonely prison night
