The Wall Lyrics

(Harlan Howard)
© '59 Red River Songs, BMI / Cedarwood Publishing, BMI

There's a lot of strange men in cell Block 10 but the strangest of them all
Was a friend of mine who spent his time starin' at the wall
Starin' at the wall

In his hand was a note that his gal had wrote and it proves that crime don't pay
Was the very same gal he robbed and stole for name in her weddin' day
For name in her weddin' day

As he looked at the wall so strong and tall I could hear him softly curse
Nobody at all ever climbed that wall but I'm gonna be the first
I'm gonna be the first

Well a warden came by and said son don't try I'd hate to see you fall
Cause there ain't no doubt they'll carry you out if you ever touch that wall
If you ever touch that wall

Well the 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

There's never been a man ever shook this can but I know a man who tried
The newspaper called it a jailbreak plan but I know it was suicide
I know it was suicide
