lyrics

They took me down to the police station
I didn't do anything
I didn't do anything
Don't think for a moment
that I doubted myself
or believed what they said to me
Truth shouldn't be put to a vote
the jury can't know what I know
how else can I say no?

Just one Saturday afternoon
will last for years
last for years
Fifteen minutes in the court room
will echo for eternity
God help humanity!
The same papers visiting me
will print pictures in July
of me hanging from a tree.

They're coming to get me
to take me from my bed
they already sent a man with a knife.

Out of the prison
into a car
from Midgeville to Marietta in the dark.

Men on either side of me
masks on their faces
say "Did you do it?
Did you do it?"

Oh, Lord.
Oh, Lord.

We get out by a tree
beside the old mill
Judge Black with a table and a rope.

A bag over my head
and a rope 'round my neck
they say "Did you do it?
Have you anything to say?"

Not to you! Not to you!
Take my ring to my wife.
And let me write a letter to go with it.

Oh, Lucille.
Please believe me.
I've ne'er been quite so well known
as for this deed.

But believe me, I am not guilty.
No virtue of mine stayed my hand,
I'd just never betray you, Lucille.
