  • Let's get this circus on down the road
    We're taking bets how far a tank of gas will go
    Call up your best friend, then call two more
    About to do some shit that you ain't seen before
    There ain't no backdoor, there ain't no sign
    Location changes almost every other night
    Last time we found it, can't remember much
    I thought I was a god until my lawyer woke me up and said

    I'll testify that I was right out of my mind
    Let the record show I did it all for rock and roll
    Screamin' every night, playing twenty-five to life
    So somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin
    Out of San Quentin, just keep me out of San Quentin
    Oh, can somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin?

    Got out on bail, we hit the town
    Somebody told me we should burn it to the ground
    Too many favors, too much to drink
    Come six AM, they had me back inside the clink

    I'm gonna testify that I was right out of my mind
    Let the record show I did it all for rock and roll
    Screamin' every night, playing twenty-five to life
    So can somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin?
    Out of San Quentin, oh, just keep me out of San Quentin
    Ooh, can somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin?

    Tough to find a goddamn alibi
    Wrong or right, it's tough to justify
    Can't dismiss, too many witnesses
    When insanity's the pattern, it don't matter what it is

    I'm gonna testify that I was right out of my mind
    Let the record show I did it all for rock and roll
    Screamin' every night, playing twenty-five to life
    So somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin?
    Out of San Quentin, oh, just keep me out of San Quentin
    Ooh, can somebody please keep me the hell out of San Quentin? Writer/s: Chad Kroeger
