I was born in Rochester
To book make a man
And fake cigar shops
With the game on in the back
See them coming and going
Let them ride on thoroughbreds
Police chief and... Wondering what's the spread
I carried rich men packs through the...
Trying to chase a little white ball
I learnt that any saw place wasn't good for me at all
Daddy came home fired up looking for some sort of relief
He beat the hell out of Timmy, Timmy beat the hell out of me

Yeah I would hope the fence out to this government fields
Run till was nothing more to feel
Ly in there just watch the planes disappear
Knowing one day I will fly out of here

Well that same police chief came to hawkin my first freshman day
Put my daddy in handcuffs put his picture on the first page
To carry one of his suits and all my dignity
Walk the halls around the court waiting for any punk to set me free

Yeah I would hope the fence out to this government fields
Run till was nothing more to feel
Ly in there just watch the planes disappear
Knowing one day I will fly out of here

Well I got that call to Vietnam just like everyone outside knew
So scared to the hand grenades...
I came home like an iron fist and Timmy tried to take my keys
With dope in his front pocket that was the last time he touched me
Moved to an island out west out to Breaken Bridge
Met a mermaid on a glass boat and she promised me some kids
Bought a house in Oregon where you could touch both of the walls
Has a son called Benjamin and I was so scared of it all
Benjamin walked on the front room where I was cutting out my hash
Looked into those deep blue eyes wondering why I've been so mad
Flushed the courter pound down the drain praying to the mercy to confess
Trying to rip out that boy from Rochester right out from my chest
We're gonna walk right in to these heavenly fields
Run like it was no more time to steal
My three boys on the grass...

Knowing one day you're gonna take me out of here
Knowing one day you're gonna take me out of here
