Peter Case - Somebody Told The Truth lyrics

Case

The courthouse emptied out
The jurors all went home
The lawyers eased their guilty hearts
The cops were on their own

The soldiers left their camps
The weapons lay in heaps
The generals disappeared
The prisoners were freed

Somebody, somebody told
They told the truth to somebody
Somebody told the truth

Somebody, somebody told
They told the truth to somebody
Somebody told the truth

The theaters emptied out
The radios went dead
The stadiums were silent
And not a word was said

The dots were all connected
The lines were barely drawn
The secrets night kept hidden
Were left out in the dawn

Somebody, somebody told
They told the truth to somebody
Somebody told the truth

Somebody, somebody told
They told the truth to somebody
Somebody told the truth

The starving men and women
For once received their fill
The children of the highway
Were singin' on the hill

The politicians vanished
They must have caught their plane
The clandestine policeman
Stared out in the rain

I sat down on the curbstone
I rubbed my eyes and coughed
I rubbed my wrists and ankles
And I thanked the lord above

Somebody, somebody told
They told the truth to somebody
Somebody told the truth

Somebody, somebody told
They told the truth to somebody
Somebody told the truth
