lyrics

San Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me
You've blistered me since 1963
I've seen 'em come and go and I've seen them die
And long ago I stopped askin' why

San Quentin, I hate every inch of you.

You've cut me and you scarred me thru an' thru.
And I'll walk out a wiser weaker man;
Mr Congressman you can’t understand.

San Quentin, what good do you think you do?
Do you think I'll be different when you're through?
You bent my heart and mind and you warped my soul,
but your stone walls turn my blood a little cold.

San Quentin, may you rot and burn in hell.

May your walls fall and may I live to tell.
May all the world forget you ever stood.
And may all the world regret you did no good.

San Quentin, I hate every inch of you.
