Theme from the March on Washington (Shawn Phillips)

19 04 2008
From the lowest prairie to the highest sea
We were put on this earth created equal and free

We were put on this earth to help all mankind
But there seem to be people that don’t pay any mind
Why can’t they let us be

We’ve seen all these people
We’ve heard all their lies
But when we stand up
We’ll see the fear in their eyes
For this world’s not worth the ground that we stand on
Unless we can look our brother in the face
And say to him that we are the same
And evermore shall be

We were put on this earth to help all mankind
But there seem to be people that don’t pay any mind
Why can’t they let us be

We’ll search for the heavens
We’ll hunt all the skies
But the one that gets there first
He will claim it as his prize
For this world’s not worth the ground that we stand on
Unless we can look our brother in the face
And say to him that we are the same
And evermore shall be
