Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

” Long Way To Go “

 
THERE WAS A MAN WHO SAID ” I HAVE A DREAM “
HE SAW NO DIFFERENCE IN COLOR AS HE WALKED OUR STREETS
HE WAS THE SAME AS YOU, YOU’RE THE SAME AS ME
PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE FOR WHAT HE BELIEVED
 
AND THEY WROTE BOOKS AND STORIES ALL ABOUT THE MAN
THEY NAMED ROADS AFTER HIM ALL ACROSS OUR LAND
KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE FOR LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS
AND WE’LL ALL SAY A  PRAYER IN THE FREE WORLD
 
( CHORUS )
 
SO WE PLEDGE OUR ALLEGIANCE AND WE STAND UP TALL
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE WORLD WE’VE GOT IT ALL
BLACK OR WHITE, YELLOW, RED HANDS SHARE THE LOAD
‘CAUSE WE’VE STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO
YES WE’VE STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO 
(  excerpt )
