The Protest song

By The Gospel of the Holy Quill

Ever seen a black girl

Hurting and confused

Got no one to turn to

As her body gets abused

Prejudice and hatred

Two mountains dividing you and me

The river runs deep beneath that bridge

That leads you to dignity

Ever seen a black boy

Growing up to fast

Desperate to become a man

Before his life is past

Prejudice and hatred

Two mountains dividing you and me

The river runs deep beneath that bridge

That offers justice for all to see

Ever seen a black man

Who won’t give up on hope

But it’s hard to keep believing

When you’re hanging from a rope

Prejudice and hatred

Two mountains dividing you and me

The river runs deep beneath that bridge

That gives you a right to be free

Ever seen a woman

Grieving for her man

Knowing he wont be coming home

Just coping the best she can

Prejudice and hatred

Two mountains dividing you and me

The river runs deep beneath that bridge

That offers hope for the family
