Jim Crow

Almanac Singers
Language: English



Lincoln set the Negro free --
Why is he still in Slavery?
Why is he still in Slavery?
Jim Crow!!

This is a land we call our own --
Why does the Negro ride alone?
Why does the Negro ride alone?
Jim Crow!

When it's time to go to the polls --
Why does the Negro stay at home?
Why does the Negro stay at home?
Jim Crow!

When it's time to go to the war --
Why does the Negro march alone?
Why does the Negro march alone?
Jim Crow!

Freedom for all is what is said --
Free to suffer till he's dead!
Free to suffer till he's dead!
Jim Crow!

This is a Land of Democracy --
Why isn't everybody free?
Why isn't everybody free?
Jim Crow!

If we believe in Liberty --
Put an end to slavery!
Put an end to slavery!
Jim Crow!
