Written By: Bon Scott/Malcolm Young/Angus Young

There was a friend of mine on murder
And the judge's gavel fell,
Jury found him guilty,
Gave him sixteen years in hell.
He said "I ain't spending my life here,
I ain't living alone,
Ain't breaking no rocks on the chain gang,
I'm breakin' out and headin' home.

Gonna make a Jailbreak
And I'm lookin' towards the sky,
I'm gonna make a Jailbreak
Oh, how I wish that I could fly

All in the name of Liberty
All in the name of Liberty
Just set me free

Jailbreak, let me out of here
Jailbreak, sixteen years,
Jailbreak, had more than I can take
Jailbreak, yeah."

He said he'd seen his lady being fooled with
by another man.
She was down and he was up
He had a gun in his hand.
Bullets started flying everywhere
And people started to scream
Big man lying on the ground
With a hole in his body
Where his life had been
But it was

All in the name of Liberty
All in the name of Liberty
I got to be free.

Jailbreak, Jailbreak
I got to break out
Out of here.

Heartbeats they were racin',
Freedom he was chasin'
Spotlights, sirens, rifles firing,
But he made it out
With a bullet in his back.
