Drifters Escape

Bob Dylan

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

 G
Well, the judge, he cast his robe aside,
 C/GG
A tear came to his eye,
 G
"You fail to understand," he said,
 C/GG
"Why must you even try?"
 G
Outside, the crowd was stirring,
 C/GG
You could hear it from the door.

Inside, the judge was stepping down,
 C/GG
While the jury cried for more.

 G
"Oh, stop that cursed jury,"
 C/GG
Cried the attendant and the nurse,
 G
"The trial was bad enough,
 C/GG
But this is ten times worse."
 G
Just then a bolt of lightning
 C/GG
Struck the courthouse out of shape,

And while ev'rybody knelt to pray
 C/GG
The drifter did escape.

Cheers
Jack of Hearts
