"Breakaway (From Those Chains)" as written by and John Dillon....
My aunt Jessie was cruel
Lord, she made me go to school
All the time
It was killing me
It was a crime
'Cause I could not be free
From the confines
Of those chains
 
Oh the river was deep
But the water looked sweet
Oh my, my, my
I jumped right in
You know I tried
But I could not swim
Through the darkness or the pain
 
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
 
So I headed for the hills
Let the danger break my will
Oh my, my
In a landslide
I was losing ground
And there was no one but myself to blame
 
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
Never thought I'd breakaway from those chains
No, no, no, I'd breakaway from those chains

Breakaway from those chains
Breakaway from those chains
