Pistol shots ring out in the
barroom night
Enter Patty Valentine from the
upper hall.
She sees the bartender in a
pool of blood,
Cries out, "My God, they killed
them all!"
Here comes the story of the
Hurricane,
The man the authorities came to
blame
For somethin' that he never
done.
Put in a prison cell, but one
time he could-a been
The champion of the world.
Three bodies lyin' there does
Patty see
And another man named Bello,
movin' around mysteriously.
"I didn't do it," he says, and
he throws up his hands
"I was only robbin' the
register, I hope you understand.
I saw them leavin'," he says,
and he stops
"One of us had better call up
the cops."
And so Patty calls the cops
And they arrive on the scene
with their red lights flashin'
In the hot New Jersey night.
Meanwhile, far away in another
part of town
Rubin Carter and a couple of
friends are drivin' around.
Number one contender for the
middleweight crown
Had no idea what kinda shit was
about to go down
When a cop pulled him over to
the side of the road
Just like the time before and
the time before that.
In Paterson that's just the way
things go.
If you're black you might as
well not show up on the street
'Less you wanna draw the heat.
Alfred Bello had a partner and
he had a rap for the cops.
Him and Arthur Dexter Bradley
were just out prowlin' around
He said, "I saw two men runnin'
out, they looked like
middleweights
They jumped into a white car
with out-of-state plates."
And Miss Patty Valentine just
nodded her head.
Cop said, "Wait a minute, boys,
this one's not dead"
So they took him to the
infirmary
And though this man could
hardly see
They told him that he could
identify the guilty men.
Four in the mornin' and they
haul Rubin in,
Take him to the hospital and
they bring him upstairs.
The wounded man looks up
through his one dyin' eye
Says, "Wha'd you bring him in
here for? He ain't the guy!"
Yes, here's the story of the
Hurricane,
The man the authorities came to
blame
For somethin' that he never
done.
Put in a prison cell, but one
time he could-a been
The champion of the world.
Four months later, the ghettos
are in flame,
Rubin's in South America,
fightin' for his name
While Arthur Dexter Bradley's
still in the robbery game
And the cops are puttin' the
screws to him, lookin' for
