The Ballad of Caryl Chessman (Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live)

Ronnie Hawkins
Language: English



Let Him Live, Let Him Live
Caryl Chessman spent twelve years
in Saint Quentin
waitin for the execution day
what the same may be true
but what good ... killing do
everyway I go people say

Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live
I'm not saying forget or forgive
if he's guilty all this prime
keep in jail for a long long time
but Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live

Caryl Chessman he was .... like bandit
he ... die
he was gone to his ...
in the gas chamber room
sudendly the world heard a cry

Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live
I'm not saying forget or forgive
if he's guilty all this prime
keep in jail for a long long time
but Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live

Did he kidnap, did he rope is he guilty
just like those two policemen say
kill ...
... to God's plan

Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live
I'm not saying forget or forgive
if he's guilty all this prime
keep in jail for a long long time
but Let Him Live, Let Him Live, Let Him Live
