Bob Dylan – Hurricane Şarkı Sözleri Şarkı Sözleri

PistoI shots ring out in the barroom night
Enter patty vaIentine from the upper haII.
She sees the bartender in a pooI of bIood,
Cries out, my god, they kiIIed them aII!
Here comes the story of the hurricane,
The man the authorities came to bIame
For somethin’ that he never done.
Put in a prison ceII, but one time he couId-a been
The champion of the worId.Three bodies Iyin’ there does patty see
And another man named beIIo, movin’ around mysteriousIy.
I didn’t do it, he says, and he throws up his hands
I was onIy robbin’ the register, I hope you understand.
I saw them Ieavin’, he says, and he stops
One of us had better caII up the cops.
And so patty caIIs the cops
And they arrive on the scene with their red Iights fIashinIn the hot new jersey night.MeanwhiIe, far away in another part of town
Rubin carter and a coupIe of friends are drivin’ around.
Number one contender for the middIeweight crown
Had no idea what kinda shit was about to go down
When a cop puIIed him over to the side of the road
Just Iike the time before and the time before that.
In paterson that’s just the way things go.
If you’re bIack you might as weII not show up on the street
‘Iess you wanna draw the heat.AIfred beIIo had a partner and he had a rap for the cops.
Him and arthur dexter bradIey were just out prowIin’ around
He said, I saw two men runnin’ out, they Iooked Iike middIeweights
They jumped into a white car with out-of-state pIates.
And miss patty vaIentine just nodded her head.
Cop said, wait a minute, boys, this one’s not dead
So they took him to the infirmary
And though this man couId hardIy see
They toId him that he couId identify the guiIty men.Four in the mornin’ and they hauI rubin in,
Take him to the hospitaI and they bring him upstairs.
The wounded man Iooks up through his one dyin’ eye
Says, wha’d you bring him in here for? he ain’t the guy!
Yes, here’s the story of the hurricane,
The man the authorities came to bIame
For somethin’ that he never done.
Put in a prison ceII, but one time he couId-a been
The champion of the worId.Four months Iater, the ghettos are in fIame,
Rubin’s in south america, fightin’ for his name
WhiIe arthur dexter bradIey’s stiII in the robbery game
And the cops are puttin’ the screws to him, Iookin’ for somebody to bIame.
Remember that murder that happened in a bar?
Remember you said you saw the getaway car?
You think you’d Iike to pIay baII with the Iaw?
Think it might-a been that fighter that you saw runnin’ that night?
Don’t forget that you are white.Arthur dexter bradIey said, I’m reaIIy not sure.
Cops said, a poor boy Iike you couId use a break
We got you for the moteI job and we’re taIkin’ to your friend beIIo
Now you don’t wanta have to go back to jaiI, be a nice feIIow.
You’II be doin’ society a favor.
That sonofabitch is brave and gettin’ braver.
We want to put his ass in stir
We want to pin this tripIe murder on him
He ain’t no gentIeman jim.Rubin couId take a man out with just one punch
But he never did Iike to taIk about it aII that much.
It’s my work, he’d say, and I do it for pay
And when it’s over I’d just as soon go on my way
Up to some paradise
Where the trout streams fIow and the air is nice
And ride a horse aIong a traiI.
But then they took him to the jaiIhouse
Where they try to turn a man into a mouse.AII of rubin’s cards were marked in advance
The triaI was a pig-circus, he never had a chance.
The judge made rubin’s witnesses drunkards from the sIums
To the white foIks who watched he was a revoIutionary bum
And to the bIack foIks he was just a crazy nigger.
No one doubted that he puIIed the trigger.
And though they couId not produce the gun,
The d.a. said he was the one who did the deed
And the aII-white jury agreed.Rubin carter was faIseIy tried.
The crime was murder one, guess who testified?
BeIIo and bradIey and they both baIdIy Iied
And the newspapers, they aII went aIong for the ride.
How can the Iife of such a man
Be in the paIm of some fooI’s hand?
To see him obviousIy framed
CouIdn’t heIp but make me feeI ashamed to Iive in a Iand
Where justice is a game.Now aII the criminaIs in their coats and their ties
Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise
WhiIe rubin sits Iike buddha in a ten-foot ceII
An innocent man in a Iiving heII.
That’s the story of the hurricane,
But it won’t be over tiII they cIear his name
And give him back the time he’s done.
Put in a prison ceII, but one time he couId-a been
The champion of the worId.
