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

Repeat #2


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

Repeat #2

D7 G
And I'll pray to God to help me keep my mind
