Bob Dylan They Killed Him Lyrics

Last updated: 01/08/2010 10:00:00 AM



There was a man named Hatma Gandi
He would not bow down he would not fight
He knew the deal was down and dirty
And nothing wrong could make it right away
But he knew his duty and the prize he had to pay
Just another holy man who tried to be a friend
My God, they killed him.

Another man from Atlanta, Georgia
By name of Martin Luther King
He shook the land like the rolling thunder
And made the bells of freedom ring today
With a dream of beauty that they could not burn away
Just another holy man who dared to make a stand
My God, they killed him.

The only Son of God Almighty
The holy one called Jesus Christ
He healed the lame and fed the hungry
And for his love they took his life away
On the road to glory where the story never ends
Just the holy Son of Man we'll never understand
My God, they killed him.

There was a man named Mahatma Gandi
A man named Martin Luther King
The only Son of God Almighty
The only one called Jesus Christ
On the road to glory where the story never ends
Just the holy Son of Man we'll never understand
My God, they killed him.

There was a man named Mahatma Gandi
A man named Martin Luther King
The only Son of God Almighty
The only one called Jesus Christ
On the road to glory where the story never ends
Just the holy Son of Man we'll never understand
My God, they killed him.

One of Dylan's best | Reviewer: Swanee Lane | 2/25/09

Dylan's telling us Jesus is the God man, the MESSIAH. Ghandi and King are great men, who did great things, but Jesus Christ (Christ is the Greek name for Messiah)is God's ONLY Son. We know why Ghandi and King were killed. Jesus was killed to make an atonement for the sins of the world, including mine, hard to understand. I think Dylan is caught up in the mystery of Christ's incarnation and atonement. What do you think?
