The Last Witness Song Lyrics

 
Martin Guerre Soundtrack - Musical, 1999
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
The Last Witness Please your Lordship, lend an ear

You should see this musketeer



He wants to address the court

Looks impressive...and I thought

Judge Coras

Wait!

Very well, show him in, let him speak

Villager

But my lord!

(Martin enters and stands on the platform)

Judge Coras

State your name

Martin

My name is Guerre...Martin Guerre

(Guillaume runs to look at him closer)

Arnaud

Can't you see by the look on his face, it's not him!

Bertrande

He's been sent by a devil, a demon, a ghost... Oh God, please!

Arnaud

Can't you see this apparition here is the imposter

He's been sent from hell to torment me

And at the same time would steal my wife and steal the name of Martin Guerre!

My lord, it's all a ploy devised by them

Pierre Guerre, when he found I was a Protestant hated me!

He never wanted me to inherit the land!

Martin

My friend, my friend, it's me, Martin

(he throws Arnaud the pouch they had on the battlefield in Flanders)

Judge Coras

Is there anyone here who can vouch for this man?

If there's anyone here I insist they come forward and speak

(Lubin measures Martin, Galoche measures his feet)

Villager

That's Martin, my lord, I should know, I used to work with him!

Crone

If you're asking me, sir, I know who I'd prefer

Lubin

And the arm, look, it's neither too long or too short

Galoche

And his feet are exactly the size that they ought

Pierre

It's him...my own flesh

Welcome home, Martin

Mme de Rols

Please forgive us, my son, you're back

Three Crones

Can you be sure Martin is back?

Martin

I have come for my name

I am Martin Guerre

Judge Coras

Bertrande, I call on you once again

You must condemn one of these men

(Catherine and Mme de Rols help Bertrande onto the platform)

Mme de Rols

Remember, dear, you're one of us

Pierre

Remember Artigat, Bertrande

Bertrande

Martin, Martin...

What shall I do?

Catherine

Did he lie to you?

Villager

He lied to us all

Bertrande

Martin, what shall I say?

Villagers

You must condemn one of these men

Bertrande

Martin, what have we done?

Judge Coras

The time has come to tell the truth, only the truth

Villagers

Tell us the truth

Judge Coras

Only the truth can help you now

(the villagers surround Bertrande, pulling her in all directions)

Arnaud

My name...is Arnaud du Thil
