shahram shabpareh – prison song lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
one day a friend took me aside, said, “i have to leave ya
for buying something from a friend, they say i’ve done wrong
for protecting the name of a man, they say i’ll have to leave ya
so now that i’m bidding you farewell for much too long”

[chorus]
and here’s a song to sing for every man inside
if he can hear you sing, it’s an open door
there’s not a rich man there who couldn’t pay his way
and buy the freedom that’s a high price for the poor

[post-chorus]
kids in texas smoking gr-ss, ten year sentence comes to p-ss
“misdemeanor in ann arbor”, ask the judges, “why?”

[verse 2]
another friend said to the kid, “i’m gonna have to leave ya
for selling something to the man, guess i did wrong
know i did the best i could i’m gonna have to leave ya
so now i’m kissing you farewell for much too long”

[chorus]
and here’s a song to sing for every man inside
if he can hear you sing, it’s an open door
there’s not a rich man there who couldn’t pay his way
and buy the freedom that’s a high price for the poor
