Do you believe I would take such a thing with me 
And give it to a police man?

So I was innocent of what they done to me

Oh, no bars could not hold me now 
They hold I down and they lock-a you way 
They try to keep I for a year and a day 
But through the powers of the Most High God 
Got to turn me lose, I say 

54-46 was my number, was my number, man 
Right now, someone else has that number, well 
54-46 was my number, was my number, man 
Right now, someone else has that numb
