Перевод песни Hank Williams as Luke the Drifter – Be Careful of Stones That You Throw

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw.
A neighbor was passing my garden one time
She stopped and I knew right away
That it was gossip not flowers she had on her mind
And this is what I heard my neighbor say:
«That girl down the street should be run from our midst
She drinks and she talks quite a lot
She knows not to speak to my child or to me.»
My neighbor then smiled and I thought:
A car speeded by and the screamin'of brakes
A sound that made my blood chill
For my neighbor's one child had been pulled from the path
And saved by a girl lying still.
The child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out:
«Oh! who was that brave girl so sweet?»
I covered the crushed, broken body and said:
«The bad girl who lives down the street.»
