    Theres a lot of strange men in cell block ten
    But the strangest of them all
    Was a friend of mine who spent his time staring at the wall
    Staring at thewall

    In his hand was a note that his gal had wrote
    And it proves that crime don't pay
    She was the very same gal that he robbed and stole for
    For naming her wedding day
    For naming her wedding day

    As he stared at that wall so strong and tall
    You could hear him softly curse nobody at all
    Ever climbed that wall but i'm gona be the first
    Yeah i'm gona be the first

    The warden walked by and said son don't try
    I'd hate to see you fall
    For there is no doubt they'll carry you out
    If you ever touch that wall
    If you ever touch that wall

    Well a years gone by since he made his try
    But I can still recall
    How hard he tried and the way he died
    But he never made that wall
    He never made that wall

    Theres never been a man ever shook this can
    But I know a man who tried
    The newspapers called it a jail break plan
    But I know it was suicide
    I know it was suicide
