Riot in Cell Block #9 - Johnny Winter

July the second, It was 1963
I was saving time for armed robbery
4 o'clock in the morning
I was laying back in my cell
I heard the whistle
And I heard everybody yell

There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on woww!
Down in cell block number 9

The riot sarted down in cell block number 4
Spread like wild fire across the prison floor
Scar-faced Jones said 'It's too late to quit'
Dance of dynamite cos they move real quick

There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on woww!
Down in cell block number 9

You'all stop this stop goin' on with this
You don't stop that riot
You're all gone get the chair
I said hey now boys, gettin' ready to run
Here come the warden, with the cops in toe

There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on woww!
Down in cell block number 9

In the 47th hour
The tear gas had got our men
We are all back in our cells
But every dog is pissed!

There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on
There's a riot goin' on woww!
Down in cell block number 9
