Get Your Rights Jack


Testo e illustrazione ripresi da Sing for Freedom - The story of the Civil Rights Movement through its songs, edited and compiled by Guy and Candie Carawan (1990)
Get your rights, Jack
and don't be a 'Tom' no more, no more, no more, no more
Get your rights, Jack
and don't be a 'Tom' no more

Oh CORE, oh CORE, don't you treat me this way
I'll take my freedom ride someday
Oh no you won't 'cause it's understood
You're an Uncle Tom and you're just no good
Well I guess if you say so
I'll have to get my ticket and I'll go
(That's Right)

Get your rights, Jack
and don't be a 'Tom' no more, no more, no more, no more
Get your rights, Jack
and don't be a 'Tom' no more

Oh Ross, Oh Ross, don't you treat me this way
I'll get my civil rights some day
Oh no you won't 'cause it's understood
Your skin is black and you're just no good
Well I guess if you say so
I'll have to take it to the CORE

Get your rights, Jack
and don't be a 'Tom' no more, no more, no more, no more
Get your rights, Jack
and don't be a 'Tom' no more
