[Nelly Talking]
Free City
This is a shout out to every young brother ya know
That's doin his thing right now
Keep ya head up...
He’s walkin' the yard wishin' he had wings
Ya know so he could fly up out that joint
Man

[Intro]
If I could, fly away
Ooo and I wouldn’t come back no more
I, I’d turn around,
Just to see you for the last time,
See, now I know
Hey, that it won’t be easy
I done fought in a battle, and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet, but it's still the longest yard

[Verse 1]
Man, it’s the longest yard I ever had to get in my life
And see my life ain’t right, if my wife don’t write
My niggas can't eat if the fish don’t bite
My raise the gross sales, like Mike and Nike
Now big brother almighty
I keep a gamma ray, i’ma G-5 G
Take a G-5 jeep, G-5 deep
Too some of their bare feet
And that jeep don’t speak
Listen mayne they lock it down round herre
See body bag and gag and your found round herre
This as serious as it sound round herre
The guards guard the ground, 4 pounds round herre
And they ain’t playin, they’re just lettin you know
That anything they want to happen, nigga happen real slow
Get the word from upstairs, put you in that hole
I can't take it, I’m just ready to go

[Chorus]
If I could, fly away
Ooo and I wouldn’t come back no more
I, I’d turn around,
Just to see you for the last time,
See, now I know
Hey, that it won’t be easy
I done fought in a battle, and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet, but it's still the longest yard
Yeah yeah, it's still the longest yard
Uh uh, it's still the longest yard
Um um, it's still the longest yard
I done fought in a battle and I done made it this far

[Verse 2]
I’m in my cell 20 hours a day
And doin push-ups ever hour a day
Cause im tryin to keep the cowards away
That's why im markin off the calendar days
Tryin to get it out of the way
And im just tryin to keep a piece of mine
And im gon shame a motherfucker with a piece of mine
Cause he tryin to take a piece of mine
So im gon slice his ass a piece at a time
But now that they close the door
Lock me in, in a cell 30 deep but it's built for 10
Tell me what kind of world they got you in
With the barbed wire fences, box u in
From now, til they turn off the lights
I’ma read anything in sight
Its kinda hard tryin to read at night
But I’ma change my life
And hope another brother take this flight

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
(Oohh no) I gotta make it out this place some how
(Oohh no) Man I really believe that I done turned it around
(Oohh no) You see, all I need is that second chance to show,
Since incarceration, my obligation of rehabilitation
(Oohh no) They can punch me high, and they can kick me low
(Oohh no) Spit on me, it's gonna take more than that for them to break my soul
(Oohh no) Man it's hard for people to understand what it's like to be,
Gated, incarcerated , I just can't take it, but I’ma make it man to see better days

[Chorus]

[Hook]
If I could fly away,
If I could I turn around,
If I could fly away
