HIRAM HUBBARD

HIRAM HUBBARD
traditional

da "Live - Finjan Club, Montreal Quebec"

Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Non era in questa regione
Era lontano quaranta miglia

Ma lo catturarono in montagna
e lo frustarono sulla collina
Sì, lo catturarono in montagna
e lo frustarono sulla collina
E fu lì che egli supplicò
Oh, vi prego, lasciatemi fare testamento

Ma Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Non era in questa regione
Era lontano quaranta miglia

Ma lo portarono giù a Danville
e lo gettarono in prigione
Sì lo portarono giù a Danville
e lo gettarono in prigione
E nessuno lo cercò
Nessuno gli pagò la cauzione

Ma Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Non era in questa regione
Era lontano quaranta miglia

Ma lo portarono fuori a mezzanotte
e lo legarono ad un albero
Sì, lo portarono fuori a mezzanotte
e lo legarono ad un albero
E fu lì che lo uccisero
con un fucile e tre pallottole

Ma Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Hiram Hubbard non era colpevole
Ho sentito dire da molti
Non era in questa regione
Era lontano quaranta miglia 



 

HIRAM HUBBARD
traditional

Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
He was not in this county
He was forty miles away.

But they took him 'cross the mountain
And they whipped him on the hill
Yes, they took him on the mountain
And they whipped him on the hill
It was there that he pleaded
Oh, please, let me make my will.

But Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
He was not in this county
He was forty miles away.

But they took him down to Danville
And they throwed him in jail
Yes, they took him down to Danville
And they throwed him in jail
And it was then nobody sought him
Nobody could go his bail.

But Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
He was not in this county
He was forty miles away.

But they took him out at midnight
And they strapped him to a tree
Yes, they took him out at midnight
And they strapped him to a tree
It was there that they killed him
With a rifle, bullets three.

But Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
Hiram Hubbard wasn't guilty
I've heard a great many say
He was not in this county
He was forty miles away.
