Over The Wall lyrics and chords, recorded by The Dublin City Ramblers.
 


In [G] Crumlin Road jail the [C] prisoners one day

Took [D] out a football and [G] started to play

And while all the warders were [C] watching the ball

[D] Nine of the prisoners jumped [C] over the [G] wall

 

[chorus]

Over the wall, over the wall

Who could believe they jumped over the wall

Over the wall, over the wall

It's hard to believe they jumped over the wall

 

Now the warders looked on with the greatest surprise

And the sight that they saw brought the tears to their eyes

For one of the teams was not there at all

They all got transferred and jumped over the wall

 

Now the governor's came down with his face in a twist

Said, "Line up these lads while I check out me list"

But nine of the lads didn't answer the call

And the warder said," Please, sir they're over the wall."

 

The security forces were shook to the core

So they barred every window and bolted each door

But all of their precautions were no use at all

For another three prisoners jumped over the wall

 

When the news reached old Stormont Faulkner turned pale

When he heard that more men had escaped from his jail.

Said he," Now we'll have an enquiry to call

And we'll get Edmund Compton to whitewash the wall."
