Nina Simone - Ballad of Hollis Brown

Текст песни Nina Simone - Ballad of Hollis Brown

(1963) bob dylan

Hollis brown

He lived on the outside of town

Hollis brown

He lived on the outside of town

With his wife and five children

And his cabin fallin down

You looked for work and money

And you walked a rugged mile

You looked for work and money

And you walked a rugged mile

Your children are so hungry

That they dont know how to smile

Your babys eyes look crazy

Theyre a-tuggin at your sleeve

Your babys eyes look crazy

Theyre a-tuggin at your sleeve

You walk the floor and wonder why

With every breath you breathe

The rats have got your flour

Bad blood it got your mare

The rats have got your flour

Bad blood it got your mare

If theres anyone that knows

Is there anyone that cares?

You prayed to the lord above

Oh please send you a friend

You prayed to the lord above

Oh please send you a friend

Your empty pockets tell yuh

That you aint a-got no friend

Your babies are crying louder

Its pounding on your brain

Your babies are crying louder now


Its pounding on your brain

Your wifes screams are stabbin you

Like the dirty drivin rain

Your grass it is turning black

Theres no water in your well

Your grass is turning black

Theres no water in your well

You spent your last lone dollar

On seven shotgun shells

Way out in the wilderness

A cold coyote calls

Way out in the wilderness

A cold coyote calls

Your eyes fix on the shotgun

Thats hangin on the wall

Your brain is a-bleedin

And your legs cant seem to stand

Your brain is a-bleedin

And your legs cant seem to stand

Your eyes fix on the shotgun

That youre holdin in your hand

Theres seven breezes a-blowin

All around the cabin door

Theres seven breezes a-blowin

All around the cabin door

Seven shots ring out

Like the oceans pounding roar

Theres seven people dead

On a south dakota farm

Theres seven people dead

On a south dakota farm

Somewhere in the distance

Theres seven new people born
