56 Wrong Man

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Fra Deep Purple-albummet Rapture of the Deep

Dette er inspireret af historien om Wayne Williams.

En af mine managers – Michael Lee Jackson – er den ledende advokat for Wayne, som har været fængslet i en lang periode under meget mærkelige omstændigheder. Hans sag er en celeber sag i USA.

Jeg forestillede mig selv sygne hen i et fængsel, dømt for en forbrydelse begået af andre, og spekulerede på hvordan jeg ville klare det – ikke godt, kunne jeg forestille mig.

Åh ja, der findes en uofficiel forkortelse anvendt af nogle politifolk i USA. GST = Gøre Samfundet en Tjeneste.

Sådan.

Wrong Man

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

I wasn't in the room when the action was going down
I may have been there once but at the time I was out of town
I'm seeing strange fruit, they're saying off with his head
One way or another I'll end up dead

You got the wrong man
You don't understand
You got the wrong man
You got the wrong man
I do what I can

I plead not guilty to the charges you've laid out on your desk
I know what you're thinking 'Oh yes - this is a DSF'
I think I'm prime ministerial material but I can't lie to you
So I'm out of the running
But from here in my cell I imagine
Wouldn't that be something

You got the wrong man
You don't understand
You got the wrong man
You got the wrong man
I do what I can
