La storia cantata: La condanna a morte di Sacco e Vanzetti (23 Agosto 1927)
Goodbye, my comrades, Goodbye, my north Plymouth, Goodbye to the Boston harbor, Goodbye, Suassos Lane. Suassos Lane is just an alley Up here in old north Plymouth. You saw my fish cart Roll here in Suassos Lane. They say I killed him, Said I killed the payroll carrier, Over there in South Braintree, Thirty-five miles from Suassos Lane. My name is Lefevre Brini, On the same day, Bart Vanzetti Brought fish to the Cherry Court, One block from Suassos Lane. My name is Joseph Rosen, I am a woolen peddler, I sold Vanzetti a roll of cloth, That day in Suassos Lane. I'm Mrs. Alphonsine Brini, Mr. Rosen and Bart Vanzetti Showed me the cloth with big hole in it. One block from Suassos Lane. My name is Melvin Corl, I's paintin' my fishin' schooner. Vanzetti talked to me an hour, About a mile from Suassos Lane. How could I be in South Braintree, Killin' men there in front of the fact'ry, When all these friends and others saw me Cartin' my fish in Suassos Lane? I tell you workin' people, Fight hard for higher wages, Fight to kill blackmarket prices, This is why you take my life. I tell you workin' people, Fight hard for cleaner houses, Fight hard for the wife and children, That's why they took my life. Suassos Lane is just an alley Up here in old north Plymouth. You saw my fish cart Roll here in Suassos Lane.
