Drifters Escape  Bob Dylan

"Oh, [G]help me in my weakness,"
I heard the [C/G]drifter [G]say,
As they [G]carried him from the courtroom
And were taking [C/G]him a[G]way.
"My [G]trip hasn't been a pleasant one
And my time it [C/G]isn't [G]long,
And I still do not know
What it was that [C/G]I've done [G]wrong."

Well, [G]the judge, he cast his robe aside,
A tear came [C/G]to his [G]eye,
"You [G]fail to understand," he said,
"Why must you [C/G]even [G]try?"
Out[G]side, the crowd was stirring,
You could hear it [C/G]from the [G]door.
Inside, the judge was stepping down,
While the jury [C/G]cried for [G]more.

"Oh, [G]stop that cursed jury,"
Cried the att[C/G]endant and the [G]nurse,
"The [G]trial was bad enough,
But this is [C/G]ten times [G]worse."
Just [G]then a bolt of lightning
Struck the courthouse [C/G]out of [G]shape,
And while ev'rybody knelt to pray
The drifter [C/G]did e[G]scape.
