    GAm
    There was a lad in Glesga town, Ramensky was his name 
    FCGAm
    Johnny didnae know it then but he was set for fame 
    GAm
    He did a wee bit job or two, he blew them open wide 
    FCFG
    But they caught him and they tried him and they bunged him right inside 
    FCEm
    Alley-ee alley-ay alley-oo alley-oh 
    FC
    Open up your prison gates 
    FAm
    And let Ramensky go 
    GAm
    And when they let him out he said he'd do his best but then 
    FCAmG
    He yielded tae temptation and they bunged him in again 
    AmGAm
    Now Johnny made the headlines, entertained the boys below 
    FCFGAm
    When he climbed up tae the prison roof and gave a one-man show 
    FCEm
    Alley-ee alley-ay alley-oo alley-oh 
    FC
    Open up your prison gates 
    FAm
    And let Ramensky go 
    GAm
    But when the war was raging the brass-hats had a plan 
    FCAm
    Tae purloin some information, but they couldnae find a man 
    So they nobbled John in prison, asked if he would take a chance
    FCFGAm
    Then they dropped him in a parachute beyond the coast of France 
    FCEm
    Alley-ee alley-ay alley-oo alley-oh 
    FC
    Open up your prison gates 
    FAm
    And let Ramensky go 
    GAm
    Then Johnny was a hero, they shook him by the hand 
    FCAm
    For stealing secret documents frae the German High Command 
    So Johnny was rewarded for the job he did sae well
    FCFGAm
    They granted him a pardon frae the prison and the cell 
    FCEm
    Alley-ee alley-ay alley-oo alley-oh 
    FC
    Open up your prison gates 
    FAm
    And let Ramensky go 
    GAm
    But Johnny was in error when he tried his hand once more 
    FCAmGAm
    For they caught him at a blastin', and it wasnae worth the score 
    GAm
    The jury pled for mercy, but the judge's voice was heard 
    FCGAm
    Ten years without remission, and that's my final word 
    GAm
    Ten years, my lord, that's far too long, wee Johnny cried in vain 
    FCGAm
    For if you send me up for ten I'll never come out again 
    GAm
    Oh give me another chance, my lord, I'm tellin' you no lie 
    FGAm
    But if you send me up for ten I'll sicken and I'll die 
    FCEm
    Alley-ee alley-ay alley-oo alley-oh 
    FC
    Open up your prison gates 
    FAm
    And let Ramensky go 
    GAm
    Now Peterhead's a fortress, its walls are thick and stout 
    FCGAm
    But it couldnae hold wee Johnny when he felt like walking out 
    GAm
    Five times he took a powder, he left them in a fix 
    FCFGAm
    And every day they sweat and pray in case he makes it six 
    FCEm
    Alley-ee alley-ay alley-oo alley-oh 
    FC
    Open up your prison gates 
    FAm
    And let Ramensky go
