Slowly the long day turns to night
And soon they'll turn out the prison lights
But in my cell I'm making plans
To be with you at home again

These walls and bars can't hold a dreamin' man
So I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body but not my mind
And I'll break out again tonight

The warden thinks I'm in for life
'Cause all he's ever seen me wear is stripes
He don't know 'bout my blue suit and my tie
That I wear when I'm with you each night

These walls and bars can't hold a dreamin' man
So I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body but not my mind
And I'll break out again tonight
And I'll break out again tonight
