There was a friend of mine on murder… #MusicMonday #CrimeTheme @nholten40

Every Monday I see some fabulous posts titled #MusicMonday from my #lilstar A Knight’s Reads. She shares a track of her choosing under the meme created by Drew Weldon, the Tattooed Book Geek. Y’all know Drew right? If not, you should! Go and check out his blog! I may not do this every Monday but thought I’d give it a go and wait for it…#plottwist… post songs that have a #crime theme to them. (Bet you didn’t see that coming right? 😉)

Just so happens that the choice today also happens to be by one of my favourite bands – so offenders and perps – I give you #JailBreak by AC⚡️DC

There was a friend of mine on murder
And the judge’s gavel fell
Jury found him guilty
Gave him sixteen years in hell
He said “I ain’t spending my life here
I ain’t livin’ alone
Ain’t breakin’ no rocks on the chain gang
I’m breakin’ out and heading home”
Gonna make a (jailbreak)
And I’m looking towards the sky
I’m gonna make a (jailbreak)
Oh, how I wish that I could fly

All in the name of liberty
All in the name of liberty
Got to be free

Let me outta 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
Had a gun in his hand
Bullets started flying everywhere
People start to scream
Big man lyin’ 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

I got to break out
Out of here

Heartbeats
They were racing
Freedom
He was chasin’
Spotlights
Sirens
Rifles firing
But he made it out

With a bullet in his back

Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
Jailbreak
