(This is a song about change, you see... many things about the changing aspects of our lives... since change is inevitable, we should direct the change rather than simply continue to go through the change... ...revolution has changed to the brothers in the carribean and africa, where I'm Coming from)
Early in the mornin' I heard the call of the crow. He said "C'mon now Brother. (I want you to fly with me.) Can't you see, it's time to go?" I been working on this delta underneath the burnin' sun. Seem like a Mississippi revolution feel like where I'm coming from.
Brother man run to Nebraska after the Civil War was through. Worked with his hands, worked on the land alla his life-- nothin' else he know to do. Rootin'-tootin', wild-west-shootin'-up Brothers! Though his story don't teach us none. Seem like a Wild West Revolution oughta be where I'm comin' from.
Brother man raised on welfare (an' live his life) in the heart of the city. Among the junkies and the desperate people he learned about life without pity. But he's just been thinkin' and waitin' and thinkin' and waitin', know his chance was bound to come.
The point I'm trying to make movin' from place to place and time to time (is that) vibrations that bring on new vibrations is all that's on the People's minds. (They tell me) Don't be 'fraid of revolution! It ain't nothin' but change and change is bound to come. Put a little revolution in your life and you'll understand where I'm comin' from.
