Intro

Am C G Am x2

(VI) AmFour little girls tCying their sash In the Gbasement room that Amday AmPoking fun and Cmaking jokes Before getting Gon their knees to Ampray (VII) Just so young with all their dreams and years to the end Strewn away in the rubble By the hatred of scared white men (VIII) It was early December in the year of '63 George Wallace defied what the courts they did decree (VIV) They said make your school doors open for the child of black and white Wallace clenched up both his fists and called out for a fight (Chor) AmDown in the BirmingCham jail AmDown in the BirmingCham jail AmYou had a chance to lCive your life But Gnow your locked... In the Birmingham Amjail (VV) When the locals heard the news that day Their blood began to boil They decided the only good colored man Was down beneath the soil (VVI) So with their hat and money They began to conspire And soon in Birmingham the air was thick With Powder and Fire Chorus
