This song tells the story of Sucha Singh Jawanda, known as Sucha Soorma in folk songs. Sucha restored the family honor by killing his sister-in-law Balbiro and her alleged extramarital lover Ghukkar, who at one time was his own best friend. Sucha temporarily left his village for a year. One day, on his way back to his village to see his brother Narain, he came across an old Hindu woman crying outside her house. Upon inquiring, he came to know that some Muslims in the village were ill-treating the Hindus. They stole, slaughtered and feasted on their cattle and were forcing the Hindus to eat it, too. Sucha went to the scoundrels and tried to stop them as they were about to kill another cow, but they went ahead with the killing anyway. Sucha got mad and shot five of them down; one of them was Ahmed Pathan. Later, Sucha joined a group of dacoits and ran havoc in the area. Soon, a similar situation arose. Raj Kaur, a widow and mother of two sons from a village in Bathinda, had a love affair with Gujjan. Her sons tried to stop her but she would not listen. On the contrary, she got her elder son Basant beaten up by her lover Gujjan. Basant made contact with Sucha about the problem his mother had put his family in. Sucha responded quickly and killed both Raj Kaur and Gujjan.  Police tracked Sucha down in the village Kotshamir (now in modern day Pakistan) and hanged him in the village Gehri in 1911.

Geyaran Khoon Kite Sucha Faahe Lag Geya
Sucha committed 11 murders and got hanged

Bann Ke Tareek Saare Dhol Vaj Geya
The date was set and the drum was beat 
*(Metaphorically, "Dhol Vaj Geya" means there is chaos all over.)

Fansi Den Lage Sucha Hai Pukaar Da

Sucha is about to be hanged when he cries for attention

Aakhri Suneha Loko Jandi Vaar Da

Last message to everyone before I leave

Aaje Koi Daran Moohre Choli Ad Ke, Morhiye Na Khairi Nu

Never turn away a beggar from your doorsteps 

Akhan Moohre Deenda Rehnda Hai Rarkda Chhadiye Na Vairi Nu
Never let go of an enemy that is stuck in front of your eyes


Pehlan Khoon Kita Ghukkar Hankaari Da
First he murdered Ghukkar the egoistic

Dooja Bagh Teeja Bhabho Beero Naari
Second he murdered Bagh Singh (the guy who introduced Ghukkar to Balbiro) and third his sister-in-law Balbiro

Guan Chhadvayian Bucchran Nu Maar Ke
He released the cattle by killing the butchers

Panje Pappi Rakhte Vichalion Paar Ke
He killed off all five of the sinners

Ahmed Pathan Sir Ton Malesya Vadde Naag Zehri Nu
He got Ahmed Pathan, the poisonous snake, in the head

Akhan Moohre Deenda Rehnda Hai Rarkda Chhadiye Na Vairi Nu
Never let go of an enemy that is stuck in front of your eyes


Raj Kaur Nu Si Duniya Ton Toreya
He made Raj Kaur leave this world

Pher Vadde Velly Gujjan Nu Rodeya
Then he killed Gujjan who was always idle

Takkreya Nahi Maha Sion Nu Bahut Bhaleya
Tried hard to find Maha Singh but couldn't 

Vaddi Seegi Ohdi Raab Ne Bacha Leya 
He had more time to live so God saved him

Chaare Paase Honi Menu Ghera Kaddh Ke Chak Leje Gehri Nu
Fate surrounds me all four corners to take me away 

Akhan Moohre Deenda Rehnda Hai Rarkda Chhadiye Na Vairi Nu

Never let go of an enemy that is stuck in front of your eyes


Aap Kolon Chhote Te Zulm Dhaiye Na

Never show injustice and creulty to those younger than you

Kadde Vi Kise Di Anakh Takaiye Na

Never hurt someone's self-respect

Bhaven Koi Kinneya Nu Deve Maar Ji

No matter how many one kills

Government Faahe Loundi Iko Vaar Ji

The government will hang him only once

Ajj Nahi Tan Kal Turna Har Ek Ne Raab Di Kachehri Nu

If not today then tomorrow everyone will leave for the Lord's court

Akhan Moohre Deenda Rehnda Hai Rarkda Chhadiye Na Vairi Nu

Never let go of an enemy that is stuck in front of your eyes


Hun Sees Sab De Jhukawan Charni

Now I bow my head before all

Jande Vaari Fateh Manzoor Karni

Accept my greetings as I leave

Waqt Akhiri Soorme Da Aya Hai

The last moments of the brave warrior have came

Zalmaan Ne Gal Vich Faaha Paya Hai

The despotics have put the around his neck

Chaleya Nibha Ke Jiven Likheya Khuda Ne Karma Di Diary Nu

He is leaving after completing what God wrote in his diary of deeds 

Akhan Moohre Deenda Rehnda Hai Rarkda Chhadiye Na Vairi Nu
Never let go of an enemy that is stuck in front of your eyes


Khich Ditta Fatta Tani Gayee Tand Bai
The lever was pulled and his neck gets strangled

Nikal Gayi Jaan Jurh Gaye Ne Dand Bai
His life ends and his teeth close together 

Maarda Narain Daahan Hai Oye Sucha
Narain let out a wail in grief

Bolda Nahi Veera Kehri Gallon Ruseya
My brother is not talking; what has made him mad?

Deon Wala Albela Laa Ke Kalma Likh Geya Shayari Nu
Albela from "Deon" (village in Bathinda, Punjab, India) used his pen and wrote out this poem

Akhan Moohre Deenda Rehnda Hai Rarkda Chhadiye Na Vairi Nu
Never let go of an enemy that is stuck in front of your eyes
