A Mile And A Quarter
Recorded by Sonny James
Written by Carol Smith and Sonny James

C F C G7 C
A mile and a quarter of treacherous water keeps men in Alcatraz

G7 C
Three men did what folks have claimed for years could not be done
G7 C
Three men broke through prison walls and left there on the run
F C
Tried to make a liar out of anyone who says
G7 C
Once you’re on the rock there’s no escape from Alcatraz

F C G7 C
A mile and a quarter of treacherous water keeps men in Alcatraz
F C G7 C
A mile and a quarter of treacherous water keeps men in Alcatraz

G7 C
They dug holes with sharpened spoons and then one night these three
G7 C
Climbed a shaft a twelve foot fence and took a raft to sea
F C
Not the first to try but the first to almost get away
G7 C
From that fortress in the heart of San Francisco Bay

Repeat #2

G7 C
Two men tried in ‘37 and three in ‘38
G7 C
Then again in ‘43 four convicts made a break
F C
Jumped a cliff into the cold swift water of the bay
G7 C
Three were caught and one was shot just as he swam away

G7 C
Three men thought they had it made but traces have been found
G7 C
Memos at a rain soaked raft tell us these men were drown
F C
Which just goes to prove it’s true what everybody says
G7 C
Once you’re on the rock there’s no escape from Alcatraz

Repeat #2
