My soul burns with the agony of a thousand fires I feel as though the inferno pits of hell would be better than this \"I'm innocent\" I try to plea to the 12 people who hold my fate My pleas are to of no avail I'm a black man in a white world They go out to discuss my fate How long must I wait to die, A day, a minute, an hour, it feels like a life time Many black men before have gone down this road before If I'm guilty for a crime I didn't commit I'll go back into slavery or worse But what could be worse than slavery They're back, those hatred filled white men look at me They look at me not as a man but as an animal Guilty the judge says The nigger is sentenced to life as a slave I'm laughed at, dragged through two double doors, whipped, spit at, called many names, forced to make a long gruesome trek back to Missouri
