Nickelback - San Quentin Lyrics


Nickelback - San Quentin Lyrics

Let’s get this circus, on down the road.

We’re taking bets how far a tank of gas will go.

Call up your best friend, then call two more.

About to do some shit that you ain’t seen before.

 

There ain’t no backdoor, there ain’t no sign.

Location changes almost every other night.

Last time we found it, can’t remember much.

I thought I was a god until my lawyer woke me up

and said I…

 

Testify that I was right out of my mind

Let the record show I did it all for rock and roll.

Screamin’ every night, playin’ twenty five to life.

So somebody please keep me the hell out of

San Quentin.

 

Out of San Quentin.

 

Just keep me out of San Quentin.

 

Can somebody please keep me the hell out of

San Quentin.

 

Got out on bail, we hit the town,

Somebody told me we should burn it to the ground.

Too many favors, too much drink,

Come 6 AM they had me back inside the clink

 

I’m gonna…

Testify that I was right out of my mind

Let the record show I did it all for rock and roll.

Screamin’ every night, playin’ twenty-five to life.

So can somebody please keep me the hell out of

San Quentin.

 

Out of San Quentin.

 

Just keep me out of San Quentin.

 

Can somebody please keep me the hell out of

San Quentin.

 

Tough to find, a god damn alibi

Wrong or right, it’s tough to justify

Can’t dismiss, too many witnesses

When insanity’s the pattern,

It don’t matter what it is

 

I’m gonna….

Testify that I was right out of my mind

Let the record show I did it all for rock and roll.

Screamin’ every night, playin’ twenty five to life.

So somebody please keep me the hell out of

San Quentin.

 

Out of San Quentin.

 

OH

Just keep me out of San Quentin.

 

Can somebody please keep me the hell out of

San Quentin.
