about

Song inspired by the events in Ferguson and the death of Micheal Brown

lyrics

I heard them say that they have a bill of rights
Yet they gunned a man down and created a fight
Nobody wanted another street fight
For the fear of the state and all of its might

Time and time and time again you ask me for the light
All I can tell you is that if I know the truth
I would save it for St Louis pray it for St Louis say it for St Louis and blues.

I heard them say that they have a bill of rights
But they tore up the law on that crow black night
Young Michael Browns on a deep six holiday
The jury is out, that’s the way they’ll stay

I watched the snail going up the wall seemed to know where its going maybe nowhere at all
Seems like the nation has pulled up lame
I would save it for St Louis pray it for St Louis say it for St Louis and blues.
solo
Time and time and time again you ask me is it right
All I can tell you is that if I know the truth
I would save it for St Louis pray it for St Louis say it for St Louis and blues

I heard they them say that they have a bill of rights
But they shot a man and you know that’s not right
The river rose and there’s rumours of a flood
The levees broke and spilled the burgundy blood.
