Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Back in Durham Gaol (Jez Lowe)
I've heard Jez sing an alternate version of the end of the last verse:

The sun will shine, I'll leave it all behind,
Once more I'll be a name and not a number,
Out of the gate on the narrow and the straight;
I hope they let me keep the stripy jumper.

If you've ever seen him perform, you'll know that he likes to wear striped shirts.
