Caryl Chessman

Lingua: Inglese



Caryl Chessman was a prisoner in a California jail,
They called him "The red light killer",
And they doomed his soul to hell.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down

For twelve long years he stood his ground
And he stood it like a man,
He said, I'm innocent of this crime,
My life is in your hands.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

His last appeal, it was turned down,
I'll never forget that day,
In the spring or 1960,
They stole his life away.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

In France they use the guillotine,
In England it's the rope,
For Chessman it was the cyanide tank,
which silenced his last hope.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

West Virginia miners starve to death
In America today,
If you don't call that murder,
Then you're murderers by trade.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

If you‘re rich you can buy and sell the law,
You can make and break it too,
But a poor man has a devil's chance,
Where money is the rule.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

We've men who make the wars right here,
To sell their guns and planes,
But I've never heard of one of them,
who got the cyanide tank.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

They even set Hitler's generals free,
who killed six million Jewis,
New they're back with the West German Army,
And I call that murder too.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.

Caryl Chessman went to the cyanide tank,
And what I say is true.
The law it was the murderer,
The judge and jury too.
Oh, go down you murderers, go down.
