Jimmy Davey was arrested
And taken in for questioning
That was the last we saw of him
He wouldn't confess, he wouldn't give in

Taken in to Coventry nick
And beaten up in a cell
Two pairs of handcuffs on his wrists
His legs tied up with ropes and belts

Jimmy Davey - was he innocent?
Jimmy Davey - will we ever know?
Jimmy Davey - was he a victim
Of police violence?

Coventry pigs they murdered him
Think they're hard and brave
Given no time to state his case
Now he's lying in his grave
