Per Joe Strummer, che oggi avrebbe sessantatré anni

Lord, there goes Johnny Appleseed
He might pass by in the hour of need
There’s a lot of souls
Ain’t drinking from no well locked in a factory

Hey, look there goes
Hey, look there goes
If you’re after getting the honey, hey
Then you don’t go killing all the bees

Lord, there goes Martin Luther King
Notice how the door closes when the chimes of freedom ring
I hear what you’re saying, I hear what he’s saying
Is what was true now no longer so

    These chains of sorrow, they are heavy, it is true
    And these locks cannot be broken,
    no, not with one thousand keys
    O Jailer, you drag a ball-n-chain you cannot see
    You can lay your burden on me
    You can lay your burden down on me
    You can lay your burden down upon me
    But you cannot lay down your memory

    Woooo wooo wooo
    Woooo wooo wooo
    Here I go!
    Knockin on Joe!
    This square foot of sky will be mine til I die
    Knocking on Joe
    Woooo wooo wooo
    All down the row
    Knockin on Joe

    O Warden I surrender to you
    Your fists can’t hurt me anymore
    You know, these hands will never mop
    your dirty Death Row floors
    O Preacher, come closer, you don’t scare me anymore

    Per Joe Strummer, ovunque sia…

    This is a public service announcement
    With guitar
    Know your rights all three of them

    Number 1
    You have the right not to be killed
    Murder is a CRIME!
    Unless it was done by a
    Policeman or aristocrat
    Know your rights

    And Number 2
    You have the right to food money
    Providing of course you
    Don’t mind a little
    Investigation, humiliation
    And if you cross your fingers
    Rehabilitation

    Know your rights
    These are your rights
    Wang

    Know these rights

    Number 3
    You have the right to free
    Speech as long as you’re not
    Dumb enough to actually try it.

    Know your rights
    These are your rights
    All three of ‘em
    It has been suggested
    In some quarters that this is not enough!
    Well…………………………

    Get off the streets
    Get off the streets
    Run
    You don’t have a home to go to
    Smush

    Finally then I will read you your rights

    You have the right to remain silent
    You are warned that anything you say
    Can and will be taken down
    And used as evidence against you
