LyricsI Shall Be Free

Johnny Cash

Last update on: July 17, 2020

I don't wanna go to prison I don't wanna be in jail I don't want no badge and buckle

Bringin' me my meals and mail I don't want to count the hours When they ain't worth countin' for I don't like to walk on a carpet But I hate a concrete floor So I'm trying to behave myself I'm trying to act right And I'm neighborly with my neighbor And I say my prayers at night But the thing that really matters is that you will care for me And I just want you to know that if you do I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free If you ever do want me I shall be free I don't want to be a traveler I don't want a suit and tie I don't want to eat my supper seven miles up in the sky I don't wanna be a chairman I don't want a cellular phone I don't want no gold in Switzerland You are my precious stone I'll be setting on dead ready at the sligthest nod from you Want no kind of obligation But one thing I have to do I will sleep out in your yard So you will know where I will be If you peek out your window and see me I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free If you ever do want me I shall be free I would give up my guitar Give away my fancy clothes I would cancel my engagments I would cut out all the shows I'd tear up my driver's license I would burn up my roadmap I would sit down by the phone With your picture on my lap I would sit out my by the mail box Waitin' for the morning mail I'd be like an anxious puppy Who just sits and wags his tail You won't ever catch me sleeping Honey, that I guarantee If you ever do want me I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free If you ever do want me I shall be free And just give me half a chance And I will give the world to you I would be and do most anything you want me to I will love you and protect you and provide bountifully I'll give you tomorrow if you give yourself to me And whenever that may be I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free I shall be free If you ever do want me I shall be free
