The Ballad Of Smith And Gabriel Jimmyboy

BALLAD OF SMITH AND GABRIEL JIMMYBOY, THE
From the film "Smith!" (1969)
(Bobby Russell)

There's an indian boy in trouble and he's runnin'
He clutches his protection like a toy
There's been a murder in town
And the blame went round and round
And they laid it all on Gabriel Jimmyboy

And Smith is just a white man in the valley
Knows well the greatest lessonin' can be taught
And if a friend or neighbour slips
He reaches out to call on Smith
And people know that Smith cannot be bought

But Gabriel Jimmyboy won't run forever
It looks as though they may let him be a man
And there will be someone like Smith wherever
A neighbour slips and reaches for his hand

There's an indian boy in trouble and he's runnin'
He clutches his protection like a toy
The Sheriff says he's guilty and he's comin'
Comin' after Gabriel Jimmyboy
Comin' after Gabriel Jimmyboy

So, Smith is just a white man in the valley
Whose love of fellow man won't be ignored
His lesson must be taught
Helping hands cannot be bought
Like the one he gave to Gabriel Jimmyboy
The hand he gave to Gabriel Jimmyboy


This can now be heard on my music
