Malabar Mansion Recorded by Gordon Parsons Written by Dave Duncan
G I was in a sad and sorry state C G The day they brought me through that gate D7 I felt just like a bird in the great big cage C Then they put me in a wing G Where the lifer's think they're king D7 G If you're weak you'll never live to see old age
C Long Bay Gaol you're cruel and bad G You have made sane men go mad A7 D7 Some have even took their lives at different times C But you won't do that to me G I'll still be sane when they set me free D7 G And I pray to God to help me keep my mind
As crews slams doors in all the slots C G He slips the bolts snaps the locks D7 Some crims keeps yelling out abuse at him C Then it was lonesome time again G I had no books I had no pen D7 G Waiting 16 hours to hear that big bell ring
I pace up and down my cell C G I feel I've died and this is hell D7 To stop me going mad I lay and think C Of my family in the scrub G My pals down at the pub D7 G And what's happening up at Saga's where I drink
My release ain't far away C G I won't worry on that day D7 About your canes and rules you put on me C Won't hear door slams in the slot G Sliding bolts snapping locks D7 G I have paid my debt again I will be free
D7 G And I'll pray to God to help me keep my mind
