Prince – Avalanche lyrics

Aw yeah!
He was not or never had been in favor
Of setting our people free, no no
If it wasn't 4 the 13th Amendment, oh yessir
We woulda been born in slavery

He was not or never had been in favor, no no no
Of letting us vote, so you see
Abraham Lincoln was a racist
Who said, "U cannot escape from history"

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
That landed on Wounded Knee
Nobody wants 2 take the weight
The responsibility

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
That landed on Wounded Knee
No, no, no, no, no, nobody wants 2 take the weight, the weight
The responsibility
