No Tears for ‘Zinger’

William Zanzinger killed poor Hattie Carroll
Hattie Carroll was a maid in the kitchen
She was fifty-one years old 
And gave birth to ten children
Who carried the dishes and took out the garbage
And never sat once at the head of the table
And didn't even talk to the people at the table
Bury the rag deep in your face
Now is the time for your tears
            Adapted from Lonesome death of Hattie Carroll 
            Bob Dylan
