Lyrics to Sacco And Vanzetti
Sacco And Vanzetti Video:
(Woody Guthrie) Oh say there, have you heard the news Sacco worked at trimming shoes Vanzetti was a rambling man Pushed his cart round with his hands (chorus) Two good men's a long time gone Sacco and Vanzetti are gone Two good men's a long time gone Left me here to sing this song Sacco came from across the sea Somewhere over Italy Vanzetti born of parents fine Drank the best Italian wine (chorus) Sacco was a family man Sacco's wife three children had Vanzetti was a dreaming man A book was always in his hand Sacco made his bread and butter Being the factory's best shoe-cutter Vanzetti worked both day and night Taught the people how to fight (chorus) I'll tell you if you ask me About the payroll robbery Two clerks were shot in the shoe factory There in the streets of old Braintree I'll tell you the prosecutors' names Katman, Adams, Williams, Kane Them and the judge were the best of friends Did more tricks than circus clowns The judge he told his friends around "Gonna put them rebels down" "Anarchist bastards" was the name The judge he gave these two fine men (chorus) Vanzetti docked in '98 Slept upon a dirty street Taught the people how to organize Now in the electric chair he dies All us people oughta be Like Sacco and Vanzetti Every day find ways to fight On the union side for workers' rights (chorus)
