Life can be like a prison sometimes

Broadjam Member Reviews

I enjoyed listening to this song. It has a really good feel too it. Great vocals and instrumentation. The lyrics tell a good story, which is what Country music is all about. Nicely done.

    - Nick Berry

Great vocal performance. High quality recording. Pretty traditional country melody.

Lyrics


THEY TRAPPED THE WILD BIRD IN A CAGE
? Chapman Nicholson

INTRO Wild bird -- can you hear the wind
blowing through your cage -- singing of the dove and quail ...

VERSE She was scared about the verdict
as the jury returned to their seats
When the foreman said "She's guilty"
she felt her knees go weak ---
"But I am innocent!" she cried, as
the guard led her away.
RISE "Have mercy, please, I gotta live free!"
but they trapped the wild bird in a cage.

CHORUS They trapped the wild bird in a cage
sits there in despair and rage.
Staring at walls she sees the sky
light bulb's the sunlight in her eyes.
Longing for the life she knew
when the prairies were in bloom
the sweet perfume of pine and sage ---
but they trapped the wild bird in a cage.

VERSE She hears the tumbling waterfalls
and not the sound of clanging doors
Feels the soft grass underfoot
and not the hard cement floor ---
Now she's caught here in this jail
memories are all that's left
RISE she survives in a dream
of the land she loved so well

CHORUS They trapped the wild bird in a cage
sits there in despair and rage.
Staring at walls she sees the sky
light bulb's the sunlight in her eyes.
Longing for the life she knew
when the prairies were in bloom
the sweet perfume of pine and sage ---
but they trapped the wild bird in a cage.


REFRAIN Wild bird -- can you hear the wind
blowing through your cage --singing of the dove and quail.....
