    (Burns/McCallum)

    Gill and Galloway were working late
    On a summers night in '58
    In a small town Alabama hideaway
    In the U.S.A.
    The two cops were knocking on the door
    Of a young black boy
    It was a quarter to four
    They said:
    "Hey nigger! Hit the floor.
    You're about to be history."

    Pop Bickham was the young black man
    He couldn't work it out, he didn't understand
    But when they come with their guns you do what you can
    So he picked up his rifle and he shot them down
    They said he killed them in cold blood
    And the jury they agreed
    They said: "you'll be sorry for what you've done"
    And the whole town they agreed

    Chorus:
    They picked you up and they sent you down
    A poor black boy in a rich white town
    And for 38 years you never made a sound
    That was half a life away

    You see one of the cops had something to hide
    He'd raped Pop's sister more than once or twice
    And Pop wasn't going to let it go this time
    So the cops had to take him out
    But the courtroom didn't hear all of the story
    They held back facts from the all white jury
    No doubt what the verdict would be
    Take him down, he's guilty

    (Chorus)

    All these years in a prison cell
    Never once complaining
    Half your life gone to hell
    All because of hatred and bigotry
    You're a better man than me

    (Chorus x2)
