dall'album Freedom Highway

La canzone è dedicata al movimento Black Lives Matters.
Young man was a good man
Always went to school
Young man was a good man
Never played the fool
Young man was a good man
Never had no drama
Young man was a good man
Always took care of his mama

Young man was a good man
Hanging with his boys
Young man was a good man
Didn't know he'd made a choice
Young man was a good man
Only did it twice
Young man was a good man
But now he's paid the price

Better get it right the first time
Better get it right the first time
Better get it right the first time
Better get it right the first time
Young man was a good man
Did you stand your ground
Young man was a good man
Is that why they took you down
Young man was a good man
Or did you run that day
Young man was a good man
Baby, they shot you anyway

Better get it right the first time
Better get it right the first time
Better get it right the first time
Better get it right the first time

We done seen it on the daily
Reposting abituary pages
Losing beloveds they wanna change the subject
It's nothing new for the blue
Is the who or the hue
It's kids watching they fathers die when they pull up the tube
We know enough to be cautious but honestly it's not simple
Told to reach for ya paper they think you strapped with a pistol
I was chiling had nothing but good intentions
I knew to achieve success had to learn to finesse the systems
It was GPAs and test scores I had to be the best for
College my only option my mama told me to prep for it
So it was kinda tiresome stress red in my irises
Got an invitation to another function like finally
Had to pull up with the homies
Only pouring some soda
I keep a clear head I seen enough to know how it goes
But I noticed it getting louder
Neighbors complain 'bout the noise
Before I knew it heard someone yell out, "Run, it's the boys"
I didn't know what direction I hit the curb and I run
Everybody loud ain't hear 'em tell me put my hands up
Headed towards the lights someone screamd my name from behind
I guess you better get it right the first time
