    Once upon a time
    And not so long ago
    When things were much more simple
    And time would travel slow
    There came a righteous stranger
    With a bible in his hand
    To educate the sinners
    And liberate their land

    CHORUS
    The sins of the fathers
    Are visited from old
    In a never ending circle
    Of people bought & sold
    So the wretched of the earth
    Will huddle from the cold
    As the ship of fools goes sailing
    On an ocean black as gold

    So come & sit beside me
    And let my tale unfold
    Of a land of milk & honey
    Where the truth must not be told
    As men of rhyme & reason
    Let the devil take their soul
    For greed & fame & fortune
    And a river black as gold

    CHORUS

    And all the non-believers
    Were hiding from the light
    As a thousand burning crosses
    Were scattered in the night
    The thieves & the vagabonds
    Were sinking in the sand
    As the righteous lord & master
    Stretches out a helping hand

    CHORUS

    And those who had to suffer
    The sick, the young, the old
    Were sacrificed to fortune
    And left out in the cold
    So in this new arrangement
    The leaders sold their soul
    For bangles, beads & baubles
    And a river black as gold

    CHORUS
