100 thoughts on “Bob Dylan – Hurricane (Audio)

  1. I got mad into Bob Dylan when i was 16 in 1982. My friends were telling me about the song the Hurricane and i got a lend of Desire and taped it. The very first time i heard it i loved it, Then a guy who worked with the Youth Project in our neighborhood in Dublin .heard i was a Dylan fan he said to me "I have to go over to the priest's house who also helped with the Youth will you and Sam (a pal) help us with some things ,when we got there he took out 12 Bob Dylan LP's and said Here you go guys i don't get much time to play them , my friend and I were delighted and just so surprised ,I took 6 and my pal took the same amount, I had them for years then my Nephew got into Dylan in 2008.So i said here i have something for you,i gave him the 6 and many more that i'd buy every week. He had a Vinyl record player so i gave him my vinyl collection, some Bowie LP's Dylan The Who and Pink Floyd my favorite band, Dark Side of the Moon ,so he was delighted it was a good collection worth a lot he offered to buy them i said don't be silly they are a gift just make sure you keep them well, On Friday nights my friends and I would be listening to Dylan then we'd put Pink Floyd the Wall on and we'd sing it from stat to finish. Now I don't be into the music of today, I'm a 60's 70's and 80's music fan. the sound FX on Pink Floyd's LP's were unreal

  2. This song is musically great on it's own. You can feel the hurricane build and fall. The lyrics are amazing and powerful. Then if you're lucky you realize it's based on a beautiful yet sad true story about Rubin Carter. Which apparently Denzel Washington also made a great movie on.
    Love how older music can have so much depth. I'd be hard]pressed to find a song like this today.
    Also, he used the n-word here and wasnt canceled by society at large. This was when context mattered and people weren't sea cucumbers.

  4. "How can the life of such a man
    Be in the palm of some fool's hand?
    To see him obviously framed
    Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land
    Where justice is a game"

  5. Hurricane (Ouragan)
    Pistols shots ring out in the bar room, night
    Les coups de feu retentissent hors du bar, la nuit
    Enter Patty Valentine from the upper hall
    Entre ensuite Patty Valentine de l'étage supérieur
    She sees the bartender in a pool of blood
    Elle voit le barman dans une marre de sang
    Cries out My God they killed them all
    Elle crie Mon Dieu ils les ont tous tués
    [Chorus]
    [Refrain]
    Here comes the story of the Hurricane
    Voici l'histoire d'Hurricane(×1)
    The man the authorities came to blame
    L'homme que les autorités sont venues blâmer
    For something that he never done
    Pour quelque chose qu'il n'a jamais fait
    Put him in a prison cell but one time he could've been The champion of the world
    Ils l'ont mis dans une cellule de prison mais il aurait pu etre le champion du monde
    Three bodies lying there does Patty see
    Patty voit trois corps allongés
    And another man named Bello moving around mysteriously
    Et un autre homme appelé Bello qui se promene autour mystérieusement
    I didn't do it he says and he throws up his hands
    Je n'ai rien fait dit-il en levant ces mains en l'air
    I was only robbing the register I hope you understand
    Je volais juste la caisse j'espère que vous comprenez
    I saw them leaving he says and he stops
    Je l'ai vu partir dit-il et il s'arrêta
    One of us had better call up the cops
    Un d'entre nous ferais mieux d'appeler la police
    And so Patty calls the cops
    Et ainsi Patty appella la police
    And they arrive on the scene with their red lights flashing
    Et ils arrivent sur la scène du crime avec leurs girophares rouge
    In the hot New Jersey night
    Dans la nuit chaude du New-Jersey
    Meanwhile far away in another part of town
    Pendant ce temps loin dans une autre partie de la ville

    Rubin Carter and a couple of friends are driving around
    Rubin Carter et un couple d'amis se promènent en voiture
    Number one contender for the middleweight crown
    Compétiteur numéro un pour la couronne des poids moyens(×2)
    Had no idea what kinda shit was about to go down
    Il n'avait aucune idée de la merde qui allait lui tomber dessus
    When a cop pulled him over to the side of the road
    Quand la police lui demanda de se garer sur le coté de la route
    Just like the time before and the time before that
    Juste comme la fois précédente et encore la fois avant
    In Patterson that's just the way things go
    Patterson, c'est de cet maniere que les choses se passent
    If you're black you might as well not show up on the street
    Si tu es noir tu ferais mieux de ne pas te montrer dans la rue
    Unless you wanna draw the heat
    Sauf si tu veux attirer l'attention
    Alfred Bello had a partner and he had a rap for the corps
    Alfred Bello a eu un associer et il etait contre les forces de l'ordre
    Him and Arthur Dexter Bradley were just out prowling around
    Lui et Arthur Dexter Bradley étaient juste entrain de trainer
    He said I saw two men running out they looked like middleweights
    Il a dit' j'ai vu deux hommes sortir en courant et ils ressemblaient à de poids moyens
    They jumped into a white car with out-of-state plates
    Ils ont sauté dans une voiture blanche avec des plaques d'un autre état
    And Miss Patty Valentine just nodded her head
    Et Mademoiselle Patty Valentine faisait un signe de la tête
    Cop said Wait a minute boys this one's not dead
    Un policier dit attendez les gars celui-là n'est pas mort
    So they took him to the infirmary
    Ainsi ils l'ont porté à l'infirmerie
    And though this man could hardly see
    Et bien que cet homme pouvait à peine voir
    They told him that he could identify the guilty men
    Ils lui ont indiqué qu'il pourrait identifier les coupables
    Four in the morning and they haul Rubin in
    À quatre heures du matin et ils ont transporté Rubin avec eux
    Take him to the hospital and they bring him upstairs
    Ils l'ont emmené à l'hôpital au deuxième étage
    The wounded man looks up through his one dying eye
    L'homme blessé regarda à travers son oeil
    Says Wha'd you bring him in here for He ain't the guy
    *Et demanda, pourquoi l'avez-vous emmené ici Ce n'est pas lui ?
    [Chorus]
    [Refrain]
    Four months later the ghettos are in flame
    Quatre mois plus tard les ghettos sont en feu
    Rubin's in South America fighting for his name
    Rubin en Amérique du Sud se battant pour son titre
    While Arthur Dexter Bradley's still in the robbery game
    Tandis que Arthur Dexter Bradley fait toujours dans le vol
    And the cops are putting the screws to him looking for somebody to blame
    Et les policier lui mettent la corde au cou, cherchant quelqu'un à blâmer
    Remember that murder that happened in a bar
    Rappele-toi ce meurtre qui s'est produit dans un bar
    Remember you said you saw the getaway car
    Rappelle-toi que tu as dit avoir vu la voiture prendre la fuite
    You think you'd like to play ball with the law
    Tu penses que tu peux jouer à la balle avec la loi
    Think it might've been that fighter you saw running that night
    Penses-tu que c'est ce boxeur que tu as vu courir cette nuit là
    Don't forget that you are white
    N'oublie pas que tu es blanc

    Arthur Dexter Bradley said I'm really not sure
    Arthur Dexter Bradley dit, je ne suis vraiment pas sûr
    Cops said a boy like you could use a break
    Le policier dit un garçon comme toi pourrait prendre une pause
    We got you for the motel job and we're talking to your friend Bello
    Nous t'avons attrapé pour le vol dans le motel et nous parlons à ton ami Bello
    Now you don't want to have to go back to jail be a nice fellow
    Maintenant tu n'auras pas à revenir en prison alors sois gentil
    You'll be doing society a favor
    Tu feras une faveur à la société
    That son of a bitch is brave and getting braver
    Ce fils de chien est courageux et devient de plus en plus courageux
    We want to put his ass in stir
    Nous voulons le mettre sur la touche
    We want to pin this triple murder on him
    Nous voulons lui attribuer ce triple meurtre
    He ain't no Gentleman Jim
    Ce n'est pas un gentleman, Jim
    Rubin could take a man out with just one punch
    Rubin pourrais sortir un homme avec juste un coup de poing
    But he never did like to talk about it all that much
    Mais il n'a jamais aimé parler de ça
    It's my work he'd say and I do it for pay
    C'est mon travail qu'il dirait et je le fais pour le salaire
    And when it's over I'd just as soon go on my way
    Et quand c'est fini je préfère encore partir sur mon chemin
    Up to some paradise
    Jusqu'à un certain paradis
    Where the trout streams flow and the air is nice
    Où les truites nagent et ou l'air est bon
    And ride a horse along a trail
    Et me promener à cheval le long des chemins
    But then they took him to the jailhouse
    Mais alors ensuite ils l'ont mis en prison
    Where they try to turn a man into a mouse
    Là où ils essayent de transformer les hommes en souris
    All of Rubin's cards were marked in advance
    Toutes les cartes de Rubin ont été marqué à l'avance
    The trial was a pig-circus he never had a chance
    Le procès était un vrai cirque il n'a jamais eu de chance
    The judge made Rubin's witnesses drunkards from the slums
    Le juge a fait en sorte que les témoins de Rubin soient introuvables ou des ivrognes
    To the white folks who watched he was a revolutionary bum
    Pour les blancs qui regardaient il était un clochard révolutionnaire
    And to the black folks he was just a crazy nigger
    Et pour les noirs il n'était qu'un nègre complètement fou
    No one doubted that he pulled the trigger
    Personne ne doutait qu'il avait tiré sur la gachette
    And though they could not produce the gun
    Et bien qu'ils n'avaient jamais retrouvé le pistolet
    The lawyer said he was the one who did the deed
    *L'avocat a indiqué qu'il était celui qui a fait le contrat
    And the all-white jury agreed
    Et le jury composé de personnes blanches était d'accord
    Rubin Carter was falsely tried
    Rubin Carter a été mal jugé
    The crime was murder 'one' guess who testified
    Pour ce meurtre on peut se douter de qui a témoigné
    Bello and Bradley and they both baldly lied
    Bello et Bradley ont tous les deux menti
    And the newspapers they all went along for the ride
    Et les journaux ont suivi la meme route
    How can the life of such a man
    Comment la vie d'un tel homme
    Be in the palm of some fool's hand
    A pu se retrouver entre les mains de ces imbéciles
    To see him obviously framed
    Le voir évidemment enfermé
    Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land
    Je ne peux m'empêcher d'avoir honte de vivre dans un pays
    Where justice is a game
    Où la justice est un jeu
    Now all the criminals in their coats and their ties
    Maintenant tous les criminels en costumes et cravates
    Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise
    Sont libres de boire des martinis et de voir le soleil se lever
    While Rubin sits like Buddha in a ten-foot cell
    Pendant que Rubin est assis comme Buddha dans une cellule
    An innocent man in a living hell
    Un innocent vivant en enfer
    That's the story of the Hurricane
    C'est l'histoire d'Hurricane(×3)
    But it won't be over till they clear his name
    Mais ce ne sera pas terminé jusqu'à qu'ils blanchissent son nom
    And give him back the time he's done
    Et lui redonnent le temps qu'ils lui ont pris
    Put him in a prison cell but one time he could've been
    Ils l'ont mis dans une cellule de prison mais il aurait pu être une fois
    The champion of the world
    Le champion du monde

  6. One thing I've always respected about ruben is that he did not accept anything that they would give him because what they would give him would be the exception of the reality that he was a condemned man and he was only condemned for something he did not do I know how that feels not in equal but I do. So I just came up with 2 lines that would have been really respectful to his condition thrown in there I mean obviously Bob did a great amazing amount of detail that could cover years that could cover so much but I just want to say this " He would not wear the clothes are the convicted of those that deserve to suffer it's a shame, that he was blamed, & had to suffer these soul suckers".. "And even though now hes free they can never give back the time, that he lost, or cost owed.. with his loved ones.. and he"

  7. Wow this song is the best. Before any SjWs hear this song and says he used the N word. Bob himself went to vist Ruben Carter and told him. He was with him. Bob showed his words to this song. Ruben Carter said wow you just told my life story in 8 mins. The two became great friends! So SJWs just stop! Rip Ruben Carter! 😔

  8. Don't forget this actually happened. We are not far from this.
    I like listening to Bob Dylan
    and smoking a lot of pot lol

  9. Dylan has some of the most profound lyrics in all of music.
    Denzel Washington done an awesome job on that movie
    I like listening to Bob Dylan
    and smoking a lot of pot lol

  10. I'm glad that I got to personally experience Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Bowie, U2 and Dire Straits. I know there are many more, but just these bands/artists spoke to me on such a high level. I can die happy.

  11. Is Dylan the only artist who has songs that can only be listened to by YT Premium members? I've been around a lot of legends on YT this past year, but I've never seen that occurring on anyone else's work. It doesn't seem as if it could pay off very well when most of his work is available to us anyway. People would seriously pay $20 per month just to hear the missing tracks?

  12. Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night
    Enter Patty Valentine from the upper hall

    She sees the bartender in a pool of blood

    Cries out, "My God, they killed them all!"

    Here comes the story of the Hurricane

    The man the authorities came to blame

    For somethin' that he never done

    Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been

    The champion of the world

    Three bodies lyin' there does Patty see

    And another man named Bello, movin' around mysteriously

    "I didn't do it, " he says, and he throws up his hands

    "I was only robbin' the register, I hope you understand

    I saw them leavin', " he says, and he stops

    "One of us had better call up the cops."

    And so Patty calls the cops

    And they arrive on the scene with their red lights flashin'

    In the hot New Jersey night

    Meanwhile, far away in another part of town

    Rubin Carter and a couple of friends are drivin' around

    Number one contender for the middleweight crown

    Had no idea what kinda shit was about to go down

    When a cop pulled him over to the side of the road

    Just like the time before and the time before that

    In Paterson that's just the way things go

    If you're black you might as well not show up on the street

    'Less you want to draw the heat

    Alfred Bello had a partner and he had a rap for the cops

    Him and Arthur Dexter Bradley were just out prowlin' around

    He said, "I saw two men runnin' out, they looked like middleweights

    They jumped into a white car with out-of-state plates."

    And Miss Patty Valentine just nodded her head

    Cop said, "Wait a minute, boys, this one's not dead"

    So they took him to the infirmary

    And though this man could hardly see

    They told him that he could identify the guilty men

    Four in the mornin' and they haul Rubin in

    Take him to the hospital and they bring him upstairs

    The wounded man looks up through his one dyin' eye

    Says, "Wha'd you bring him in here for? He ain't the guy!"

    Yes, here's the story of the Hurricane

    The man the authorities came to blame

    For somethin' that he never done

    Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been

    The champion of the world

    Four months later, the ghettos are in flame

    Rubin's in South America, fightin' for his name

    While Arthur Dexter Bradley's still in the robbery game

    And the cops are puttin' the screws to him, lookin' for somebody to blame

    "Remember that murder that happened in a bar?"

    "Remember you said you saw the getaway car?"

    "You think you'd like to play ball with the law?"

    "Think it might-a been that fighter that you saw runnin' that night?"

    "Don't forget that you are white."

    Arthur Dexter Bradley said, "I'm really not sure."

    Cops said, "A poor boy like you could use a break

    We got you for the motel job and we're talkin' to your friend Bello

    Now you don't wanta have to go back to jail, be a nice fellow

    You'll be doin' society a favor

    That sonofabitch is brave and gettin' braver

    We want to put his ass in stir

    We want to pin this triple murder on him

    He ain't no Gentleman Jim."

    The D.A. said he was the one who did the deed

    And the all-white jury agreed

    Rubin Carter was falsely tried

    The crime was murder "one, " guess who testified?

    Bello and Bradley and they both baldly lied

    And the newspapers, they all went along for the ride

    How can the life of such a man

    Be in the palm of some fool's hand?

    To see him obviously framed

    Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land

    Where justice is a game

  13. Bob Dylan is the only white guy who can.. no deserves the right to say the n word and get away with it!

    What a legend, so much meaning to his songs, not like the s%*t produced today!

  14. Back in the 90's his son sang a song called one head light. That song caught my attention to listen to his father's music. His son is a chip off the old block for sure 💙✌️😊

  15. I’m going play this at the company Christmas party. Sure to get things to rolling in there.
    there is only one bob Dylan who can tell a story like this via music.

  16. “Now all the criminals in their coats and their ties, are free to drink martinis and watch the sunrise.”

  17. I dream about watching a Quentin's Tarantino film about some psychic killer with this song in soundtrack. It would be a masterpiece.

  18. One of America's greatest poets….living or dead
    Don't forget this actually happened. We are not far from this.
    FLOWERS HAVE POWER – Dylan lives …

  19. there is only one bob Dylan who can tell a story like this via music.
    Dylan has some of the most profound lyrics in all of music.

  20. Bob Dylan is a living legend.. He dedicated his art against war and racism, that's someone Americans should be proud of! From Greece..

  21. He would never have been champion with his terrible fight record, in his last 5 fights he only won 1! 🤣 And 17 losses in total.

  22. People who say he shouldn't have won the Nobel Prize for Literature should sit down
    A song that actually tells a story

  23. Don't forget this actually happened. We are not far from this.
    Listen to this on the treadmill on max speed. It's the shit.

  24. This song never gets old it's sad, we have a Mark Hurricane in Australia who died in custody because of blatant neglegence he died in very cruel circumstances crying out to the guards every time that passed his cell but was ignored, justice is a very profitable game for the evil ones in authority…

  25. Só os brasileiros que gostam de música boa deixem o Like
    "I''m going to say the N word."
    – Bob Dylan, 1974

  26. Finally a proper version on you tube with Dylan actually singing.
    Don't forget this actually happened. We are not far from this.

  27. If the lyrics to this song are the last I hear before I shuffle off this mortal coil….I'd be more than happy with that.

  28. The Beatles:
    Here Comes The Sun

  30. -Ouço, essa música do DILANS.
    Todos os dias, é ainda não me cansei de ouvi_la
    Finally a proper version on you tube with Dylan actually singing.

  31. Despite the inaccuracies/controversies concerning this song I love this song. The venom in his voice, the violin playing, the harmonica at the end,…..so good.

  32. Marco il mio primo ragazzo amava questa canzone e io amavo lui! Ascoltarla in tutta la sua bellezza e' ancora un piacere come lo era allora! Che tempi! Che musica! Forza hurricaine💗💗💗💗💗💗💗
