I Took no Judas silver

A couple of friends they wanted something more
Something more than they had

So they decide to commit robbery
Even though one of them thought that it was mad

for weeks and weeks they hatched a plan
A plan to steal an armoured van

They never had nothing but this one chance
To stick it to the man

And when that fatefull night it finally fell
Their nerves began to tell

But they all found courage in there deepest depths
To leave this poor mans hell

Then they left there safe house
On the southside of town

One of them still thought that it was mad
And he wore a frown

The van pulls up outside the bank
The guards have their helmets on

The armed gang all leap out
An they’ve got balaclavas on

But some thing didn’t feel quiet right
They knew it was a sting

Blue and red lights they where flashing bright
The sirens began to ring

It was mad it was chaotic
There was gunshots in the night

The gang they turned tail and ran
They couldn’t win this fight

Now everybody they got away
Everybody except for one

He lay on the ground in a bloodstained mack
The police they shot him in the back
For weeks the cops they hassled him
From his hospital bed

They wanted him to give up those
For whom that he had bled

Well they dubbed him the quiet man
Because he didn’t speak a word

Deal after deal they offered him
But his honour was unperturbed

Well I took no judas silver
For my dignity and pride
I’m layed out in a jail cell
Sometimes I feel sad
Surely by now you can tell
I’m the one who thought
that it was mad

And i'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it and reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it.- Bob Dylan,a hard rains gonna fall

Well, it's loaded with good ideas and plenty of ptential, but I can't get hold of it as a song yet.

Got it in a form we can listen to?

Best,

I agree.

I really like the story, but I couldn't feel it as a song. It keeps coming off more spoken to me.

I'd be real interested in hearing this to music.

its quite simple, a wee kinda folk song telling a story.

just c em dm c repeated all the way through the song.

each four lines are one verse.

and ive added a line to the end so it now reads

well i took no judas silver
learned my lessons good and bad
im layed out in a jail cell
sometimes im feeling sad
surely by now you've worked it out
im the one who thought that it was mad
well i took no judas silver
and for that at least im glad.

Same here some real good writing.But all I can do is read it. Icant find a way to sing it. You got talent, just lay it out in a song format so we can get a feel for the tune. Keep writing. Nite...........................

lyrics belong in songs, poems bolong in bookstores
