john sincalir


Brano incluso nell'album "Sometime in New York City" (1972) ma famoso per la performance live del dicembre 1971, quando Lennon e i suoi amici (Phil Ochs, Stevie Wonder, Jerry Rubin e Bobby Seale delle Black Panthers) organizzarono il "Free John Sinclair Concert" ad Ann Arbor, nel Michigan.
John Sinclair era un poeta di Detroit, era il manager della band iconoclasta MC5, era leader del White Panther Party e attivista pacifista. Nel 1969, Sinclair fu arrestato pretestuosamente per il possesso di in paio di spinelli e condannato a 10 anni di prigione. Tre giorni dopo il concerto di solidarietà organizzato da Lennon. la Corte suprema del Michigan invalidò la sentenza e scarcerò Sinclair.

It ain't fair, John Sinclair
In the stir for breathing air
Won't you care for John Sinclair?
In the stir for breathing air
Let him be, set him free
Let him be like you and me

They gave him ten for two
What else can the judges do?
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta set him free

If he'd been a soldier man
Shooting gooks in Vietnam
If he was the CIA
Selling dope and making hay
He'd be free, they'd let him be
Breathing air, like you and me

They gave him ten for two
What else can the judges do?
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta set him free

They gave him ten for two
They got Ali Otis too.
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta set him free

Was he jailed for what he done?
Or representing everyone
Free John now, if we can
From the clutches of the man
Let him be, lift the lid
Bring him to his wife and kids

They gave him ten for two
What else can the bastards do?
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta set him free
