Well I walked in the pouring rain And I heard a voice that cries "It's all in vain" The voice of doom was shining in my room I just need one day somewhere far away Lord I just need one day
Well I'll be breaking these rocks And cutting this hay Yes I'll be breaking these rocks What's my price to pay
Well the river's so muddy, but it may come clear And I know too well what's keeping me here I'm just the slave of a burning ray Oh give me the night, I can't take another sight Please, please give me the night
Sun keeps beating down on me, wall's a mile high Up in the tower they're watching me hoping I'm gonna die
I won't be breaking no rocks I said "I won't be breaking no rocks"
(I won't be breaking no rocks) Oh-oh-oh (I won't be breaking no rocks) Oh-oh-oh (I won't be breaking no rocks) When the kingdom comes (repeat ad inf)
