George Thorogood And The Destroyers - Drifter's Escape Lyrics

  • (Is it rollin' Jim?)
  • "Oh, help me in my weakness,"
  • I heard the drifter say,
  • As they carried him from the courtroom
  • And were taking him away.
  • "My trip hasn't been a pleasant one
  • And my time it isn't long,
  • And I still do not know
  • What it was that I've done wrong."
  • Well, the judge, he cast his robe aside,
  • A tear came to his eye,
  • "You fail to understand," he said,
  • "Why must you even try?"
  • Outside, the crowd was stirring,
  • You could hear it from the door.
  • Inside, the judge was stepping down,
  • While the jury cried for more.
  • "Oh, stop that cursed jury,"
  • Cried the attendant and the nurse,
  • "The trial was bad enough,
  • But this is ten times worse."
  • Just then a bolt of lightning
  • Struck the courthouse out of shape,
  • And while ev'rybody knelt to pray
  • The drifter did escape.
