There's a man by my side walking
There's a voice within me talking,
There's a voice, within me saying,
Carry on, carry it on.

They will tell their empty stories,
Send their dogs to bite our bodies,
They will lock us up in prison,
Carry on, carry it on.

When you can't go on any longer,
Take the hand, hand of your brother,
Every victory brings another,
Carry it on, carry it on.

Carry on, carry it on.

Repeat 1st Verse
Carry it on, carry it on.

    I love this song because we get to sing it on Dr. King day. I think that this songs tells all of the hard times that a lot of people had to go through. If not them, then maybe there friend or family member. What this song means to me is that it teachs me what a lot of people did to make our world a better place.
