lyrics

Chinese Jail


She was fishing in a river
full of teeth and nails
it was a land where boys were men
and storms were gales

They would hover and gather
searching for a friend
a lady took em by their hand
and beckoned them in

She was looking for love
waiting on the mail
yeah, she was longing for her lover in a Chinese jail
just waiting' on a lover in a Chinese jail


chorus:

when your out on your own
and you lost your friends
you can count on picking up
a few good men
While you're waiting' and a longing' for your long lost man


Now it's all set in
he's on the sofa again
staring blankly at the window with a whiskey in his hand

he was out in the world
then he was out on bail
forever thinking of a moment in the chinese jail
while she was waiting for a word from the US Mail

when your on your own
and you lost your friend
you can count on picking up
a few good men
While your wait on your lover in a Chinese jail
