"Wrong Man" as written by and Ian Paice Ian Gillan....
I wasn't in the room when the action was going down
I may have been there once but at the time I was out of town
I'm seeing strange fruit, they're saving off with his head
One way or another I'll end up dead

You got the wrong man
You don't understand
You got the wrong man
You got the wrong man
I do what I can

I plead not guilty to the charges you've laid out on your desk
l know what you're thinking 'Oh yes, this is a DSF
I think I'm prime ministerial material but I can't lie to you
So I'm out of the running
But from here in my cell I imagine
Wouldn't that be something

You got the wrong man
You don't understand
You got the wrong man
You got the wrong man
I do what I can

    General CommentIan Gillan wrote these lyrics about Wayne Williams, who has been incarcerated for child murders in the United States. He dedicated this song to him several times on the "Rapture of The Deep" tour.

    I dont know much about this guy Wayne Williams really. But the lyrics here is written from his perspective.
