Songtekst

This little song that I'm singin' about
 People you know it's true
 If you're black and gotta work for a living
 This is what they will say to you
 
They says if you was white, should be all right
 If you was brown, stick around
 But as you's black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back
 
I was in a place one night
 They was all having fun
 They was all byin' beer and wine
 But they would not sell me none
 
They said if you was white, should be all right
 If you was brown, stick around
 But if you black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back
 
Me and a man was workin' side by side
 This is what it meant
 They was paying him a dollar an hour
 And they was paying me fifty cent
 
They said if you was white, 't should be all right
 If you was brown, could stick around
 But as you black, m-mm boy, git back git back git back
 
I went to an employment office
 Got a number 'n' I got in line
 They called everybody's number
 But they never did call mine
 
They said if you was white, should be all right
 If you was brown, could stick around
 But as you black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back
 
I hope when sweet victory
 With my plough and hoe
 Now I want you to tell me brother
 What you gonna do about the old Jim Crow?
 
Now if you was white, should be all right
 If you was brown, could stick around
 But if you black, whoa brother, git back git back git back
