Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern man when will you pay them back?
I heard screaming' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

Lily Belle, your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man coming' round
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down!
I heard screaming' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?
