[VERSE 1:]  Main Riff with lyrics

     There was a friend of mine on murder
     And the judge's gavel fell
     Jury found him guilty

play Fill 1 instead of Main Riff for this measure (Verse 1 only):
     Gave him sixteen years in hell

FILL 1:

   detune this note by unwinding tuning peg

continue main riff with lyrics

     He said, I ain't spendin' my life here
     I ain't livin' alone
     Ain't breakin no rocks on the chain gang
     I'm breakin' out and headin' home



[BRIDGE:]  main riff with lyrics

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

[VERSE 2]  Main Riff with lyrics

     He said he'd seen his lady bein' fooled with
     By another man
     She was down and he was up
     Had a gun in his hand

     Uh...bullets started flyin' everywhere
     N'people started to scream
     Big man lyin' on the ground
     With a hole in his body where his life had been




 but it was all in the name of liberty

For you people who are lookin for the sounds like Rockn_Clay, here they are!!!

E-121110987654321--121110987654321--

What to do:
-palm mute all of these
-slide down the neck
-these are all single notes
-this is for "rifles, firen" part

Im not to sure about the "sirens part
-I think they put their fingers on the 12th fret and play the
e,b,and the g strings.

Great song, but doesn't have the solo.
--------------------------------------
Look at my tab for Jailbreak if you want the solo. :)
ACDC ROCKS!!! (.com)
