Alcatraz Blues

from by Drury Lane



A shit, a shower and a shave
This place sure teach a man how to behave
Put on those white standard issue shoes
Yeah, put on the Alcatraz blues

Fireworks and laughter on New Year’s Eve
Lonesome evenings with a bible make some men believe
It don’t even matter if it ain’t true
Put on the Alcatraz blues

Boozing down on Fishermans Wharf
Alcohol sure make a man talk
Cross your heart and pay your dues
Yeah, put on the Alcatraz blues

Nights of planning and getaway schemes
Sometimes a man got nothing except his dreams
Sailing or surfing in Santa Cruz
Yeah, put on the Alcatraz blues

Early on some men start winning
Early on some men, their hair starts thinning
Yeah, some men just start to lose
They put on the Alcatraz blues
