Indigo Girls – Southern Man lyrics

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

I saw cotton
I saw black
Tall white fences
Little shacks
And southern man
When will you pay them back
I heard screaming
Bull whips cracking
How long how long
How

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
Southern man

Lilly belle your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man coming round
I swear by God I'm gonna cut him down
I heard screaming
Bull whips cracking
How long how long
How

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
