Lyrics of Nebraska
Me and her went for a ride sir and ten innocent people died
Me und ihr ging für eine Fahrt sir und zehn unschuldige Menschen starben
From the town of Lincoln Nebraska with a sawed off .410 on my lap
Through to the badlands of Wyoming I killed everything in my path
Durch die Badlands von Wyoming Ich tötete alles, was in meinem Weg
I can't say that I'm sorry for the things that we done
At least for a little while sir me and her we had us some fun
Zumindest für eine Weile mein Herr mir und ihr, dass wir uns hatten Spaß
The jury brought in a guilty verdict and the judge he sentenced me to death
Midnight in a prison storeroom with leather straps across my chest
Mitternacht in einem Gefängnis Abstellraum mit Lederriemen über der Brust
Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir and snaps my poor head back
You make sure my pretty baby is sittin' right there on my lap
Sie stellen sicher, mein hübsches Baby sitze genau dort auf meinem Schoß
They declared me unfit to live said into that great void my soul'd be hurled
They wanted to know why I did what I did
Well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world
Sie wollten wissen, warum ich es tat, was ich tat
Nun Sir, ich denke, es ist nur eine Gemeinheit auf dieser Welt
The song details the true story of the spree killer Charles Starkweather, who along with his teenage girlfriend Caril Ann Fugate perpetrated an infamous killing spree in late 1957 and early 1958 beginning in their hometown of Lincoln, NE and stretching across the prairie to their eventual capture near Douglas, WY. Many of the details in the song, such as the first two lines, 'I saw her standing on her front lawn / Just a twirling her baton', were depicted in the Terrence Malick film 'Badlands', a fictional story inspired by the events.
The song does not adhere entirely to the Starkweather killings; for instance, Starkweather killed eleven people, while the song states that ten people died. The 11th victim not referred to in the song was most likely Starkweather's first, Robert Colvert, a gas station attendant murdered by Starkweather on December 1, 1957, almost 2 months before their killing spree began in earnest.
