the gun
Wrapped himself 'round a telephone pole way out on 101

Well Billy got cut out by the highway patrol
Just lay there with the cars passing
{"I know they miss yoooooou..." - Billy Paul}

[Chorus: sampled from Billy Paul's "JUst a Prisoner"]
It seems like every-BODY, everybody, everybody
Driven on by my restless soul
I'm a prisoner of the highway
Imprisoned by the freedom of the road, yeah
I've run freight out of Wheeling West Virginia
be gone

You don't think that I'll be strong enough
No, baby now, I won't be a prisoner of your love (prisoner of your love)
I'm just not the girl
be gone

You don't think that I'll be strong enough
No, baby now, I won't be a prisoner of your love (prisoner of your love)
I'm just not the girl
You keep trading your love for pain
Someday her answer will come
Cause there ain't no way to escape

Baby I'm a prisoner
Chained by love
It's so
Pat is the guy with a record shop
And John sells fruit but wants to be a cop
And Paul deals speed in a celtic top
But I'm just a drunk in a band
Joe
your theories might differ
It's passing just the same

When it's gone I hope I can remember
Who to accuse and who I have to thank

I hope that I'm your
I'm gonna cook them feathers on a tiny spit
And I filled me a sachel full of old pig corn
And I beat me a billy from an old French horn
And I kicked
manhood has reached his sad end
With a notch an his pistol for twenty one men!
Was on a sad night when poor Billy died
He said to his friend, "I'm not
these years I’ve done it
Since I was just a little tyke

I’m a growing Boogie Billy
Everybody can see
A real Boogie Billy
From Tennessee

I’ve
And give up the fight
'Cause trouble had been Paul's middle name
Ever since he'd been captured by God's blinding light
But just when his hope should be
loud just to rattle his cage
Strum it loud just to rattle his cage

I'm gonna whittle you into kindlin'
Black crow 16 shells from a thirty-ought-six
prisoner in a washburn jail
And I strapped it on the back of my old kick mule
Strapped it on the back of my old kick mule
Bang on the strings just
of love-just stay square
Like a sermon on a blues guitar

Love walked into town
I was drowning so slowly
One step in front of your shadow
I'm a prisoner
loud just to rattle his cage
Strum it loud just to rattle his cage

I'm gonna whittle you into kindlin'
Black crow 16 shells from a thirty-ought-six
You keep trading your love for pain
Someday her answer will come
Because there ain't no way to escape

[Chorus]
Baby I'm a prisoner
Chained by
Chorus:
I'm your prisoner
You got me chained up to your love
I'm your prisoner hey, hey
Someone better free me
From these thoughts that I'm thinking
in hole baby,
I'm 'bout to give up, just about to give up
I got found by a cold lady
She's lockin' me up, lockin' me up

And this pain, this pain
manhood has reached his sad end
With a notch an his pistol for twenty one men!
Was on a sad night when poor Billy died
He said to his friend, "I'm not

I'm in Paris, won't be here long
But after
Walking down an empty road
I saw a man in old grey clothes
A stranger

Passing by he smiled at me
But when I looked I realised the danger

For
Driven on by my restless soul
I'm a prisoner of the highway
Imprisoned by the freedom of the road, yeah
I've run freight out of Wheeling West Virginia
