Thin Lizzy lyrics - Album: Jailbreak [1976]

Jailbreak


Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

Somewhere in this town

See me and the boys we don't like it

So were getting up and going down

Hiding low looking right to left

If you see us coming I think it's best

To move away do you hear what I say

From under my breath

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

Somewhere in the town

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

So don't you be around

Don't you be around

Tonight there's gonna be trouble

Some of us won't survive

See the boys and me mean business

Bustin' out dead or alive

I can hear the hound dogs on my trail

All hell breaks loose, alarm and sirens wail

Like the game if you lose

Go to jail

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

Somewhere in the town

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

So don't you be around

Tonight there's gonna trouble

I'm gonna find myself in

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

So woman stay with a friend

You know it's safer

Breakout!

Tonight there's gonna be a breakout

Into the city zones

Don't you dare to try and stop us

No one could for long

Searchlight on my trail

Tonight's the night all systems fail

Hey you good lookin' female

Come here!

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

Somewhere in the town

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

So don't you be around

Tonight there's gonna be trouble

I'm gonna find myself in

Tonight there's gonna be trouble

So woman stay with a friend

Angel From the Coast


The sacred heart is bleeding

Go tell the holy ghost

That the junkie is still cheating

To get the thing he needs the most

Lady luck has me covered

Keeping her watchful eyes over me

The lovers are discovered

The charge is first degree

Angel, she's a killer

Just flown in from the coast

Makes the hit, it's a winner

Leaves you dead as the post

Sally took to playing poker

The joker is her favorite card

The drunk he can't stay sober

He says it's much too hard

Meantime something seedy

Was happening across the hall

Somebody seemed to be groaning

You could hear it through the wall

The cops they came like lightning

The bullets flew astray

The noise it was frightening

The crook he got away

Running Back


I'm a fool now that it's over

Can you guess my name?

I make my money singing songs about you

It's my claim to fame

When they say it's over

It's not all over, there's still the pain

I'd come running

I'd come running back to you again

Oh I'd come running

I'd come running back to you again

If I said I was sorry

Would you still leave me?

I never thought you'd go 'till you did

Believe me

When they say it's over

It's not all over completely

'cause I'd come running

I'd come running back to you again

Yes I'd come running

I'd come running back to you again

I miss that girl

The show is over

And we must all go home

Just leave me by myself

I'll be alright here on my own

If it's all over, it's all over

And I'm all alone

And I'd come running

I'd come running back to you again

Don't you know I'd come running

I'd come running back to you again

Romeo and the Lonely Girl


Romeo and the lonely girl

They seemed to hit it off

Till romeo told the lonely girl

I must take my leave, my love

It was these few words I overheard

And thought, I should move in

But before I could

The lonely girl had fallen in love again

Oh poor romeo

Sitting out on his own-ee-o

Oh poor romeo

Romeo he had it rough

The guy you'd like to burn

But everything that romeo had

You can bet it was well earned

For all his good looks there were scars that he took

And a lesson to be learned

Never judge lovers by a good looking covers

The story might be spurned

Oh poor romeo

Sitting out on his own-ee-o

Oh poor romeo

Romeo he like to put it around

He was everybody's friend

But in the end even romeo found

On no one could he depend

For all his charms in someone else's arms

Lonely girl safely lay

When the train pulled in it had to leave again

And romeo pulled away

Oh poor romeo

Sitting all on his own-ee-o

Oh poor romeo

Warriors


I am the warrior

I serve the death machine

Losers or conquerors

All flash past on my silver screen

Death is no easy answer

For those who wish to know

Ask those who have been before you

What fate the future holds

It ain't pretty...

I am a messenger

The message here, you must know

I am the warrior

I deliver the fatal blow

So fate will have to wait

Till time can heal the scar

My heart is ruled by venus

And my head by mars

The Boys Are Back in Town


Guess who just got back today?

Those wild-eyed boys that had been away

Haven't changed, haven't much to say

But man, I still think those cats are great

They were asking if you were around

How you was, where you could be found

I told them you were living downtown

Driving all the old men crazy

The boys are back in town

You know the chick that used to dance a lot

Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she'd got

Man when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot

I mean she was steaming

That night over at johnny's place

Well this chick got up and she slapped johnny's face

Man we just fell about the place

If that chick don't want to know, forget her

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill

Down at dino's bar and grill

The drink will flow and blood will spill

If the boys want to fight, you'd better let them

That jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song

The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long

It won't be long till summer comes

Now that the boys are here again

The boys are back in town

Fight or Fall


Brothers here I stand

Spread my wings and take command

The sky he justly planned

The boy become a man

After all this time

I tell myself that i'm

Not just wasting time

Oh you know I'm not that way inclined

Brothers if you hear

Raise your flags and make it clear

There is more to fear

If we wait for another year

After all this time

I tell-a [repeat] myself that i'm

Just passing through time

After all this time

I tell myself that i'm

Not just wasting time

Oh you know I'm not that way inclined

Brothers fight or fall

It's man for man and one for all

No more can we crawl

Brothers, brothers hear the call

After all this time

I tell myself that i'm

Not just wasting time

Oh you know I'm not that way inclined

Brother brother

Brother brother

Brother fight or fall

It's man for man and one for all

Brother brother

Brother brother

What you want?

We gotta fight for one another!

Cowboy Song


I am just a cowboy lonesome on the trail

A starry night, a campfire light

The coyote call, the howling winds wail

So I ride out to the old sundown

I am just a cowboy lonesome on the trail

Lord, I'm just thinking about a certain female

The nights we spent together riding on the range

Looking back it seems so strange

Roll me over and turn me around

Let me keep spinning till I hit the ground

Roll me over and let me go

Running free with the buffalo

I was took in texas I did not know her name

Lord, all these southern girls seem the same

Down below the border in a town in mexico

I got my job busting broncs for the rodeo

Roll me over and turn me around

Let me keep spinning till I hit the ground

Roll me over and let me go

Riding in the rodeo

Roll me over and set me free

The cowboy's life is the life for me

Emerald


Down from the glen came the marching men

With their shields and their swords

To fight the fight they believed to be right

Overthrow the overlords

To the town where there was plenty

They brought plunder, swords and flame

When they left the town was empty

Children would never play again

From their graves I heard the fallen

Above the battle cry

By that bridge near the border

There were many more to die

Then onward over the mountain

And outward towards the sea

They had come to claim the emerald

Without it they could not leave
