I got busted for possesion of marijuana
The fuzz from the state of Arizona caught me
Just as I got back from Tijuana
I got locked up in the Folsom Pen

For over seven years
On the day of my release
I went down to the bar and had a few beers
But later that same night

I got arrested again
This time for being drunk in public
And I got sent back to were I had last been
The Folsom State Penitentiary

The moment I was placed in my cell
I began to think of a place
That would not lock me up for anything
Or would not always be on my case

It is basically just a place
Where I can be who I am
And as soon as I get out of here
I am saving up for a trip to Amsterdam
