The Ballad Of Sacco & Vanzetti - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Written by:Joan Baez/Ennio Morricone


Yes I am a prisoner

Fear not to relay my crime


The crime is loving the forsaken


Only silence is shame


And now I'll tell you what's against us


An art that's lived for centuries


Go through the years and you will find


What's blackened all of history


Against us is the law

With it's immensity of strength and power


Against us is the law


Police know how to make a man

A guilty or an innocent


Against us is the power of police


The shameless lies that men have told

Will ever more be paid in gold


Against us is the power of the gold


Against us is racial hatred

And the simple fact that we are poor


My father dear I am a prisoner

Don't be ashamed to tell my crime


The crime of love and brotherhood


And only silence is shame


With me I have my love my innocence

The workers and the poor


For all of this I'm safe and strong

And hope is mine



Revolution don't need dollars

They need this instead


Imagination suffering light and love

And care for every human being


You never steal you never kill

You are a part of hope and life


The revolution goes from man to man

And heart to heart


And I sense when I look at the stars

That we are children of life


Death is small
