Black Oak Arkansas – You Can't Keep A Good Man Down lyrics

Luther King was a good ole boy
Raised in poverty
Couldn't be broke or even provoked
Made rock and roll history
Gave the people hope with a good
Full scope
Of freedom been denied
Politicians know that freedom grows
Because of that he died.


Let' em feel it when they see you
You can't keep a good man down
You can't keep a good man down
You can't keep a good man down

I feel like singin' to you this song
For all the livin' underdogs
The flame of hope must carry on
Even against unbeatable odds
It don't matter if you're president
Or rock and roll stars
If they got your name it's all the same
And they know who you are
