The Lyrics

155th Anniversary of The Emancipation Proclamation!
1st Verse:
Blacks had the worst times
In the early beginnings
Doing chores for those
Caucasians, yes!
During the early 1600s
Stolen right from home
In those dark ship chambers
Lack any light

2nd Verse:
After many months
The slaves
Enter new world America
Whips, chains, and brutal lynchings
Spread around
After 200 years or so
Comes diffusion of Jim Crow
Civil wars, everything Blacks
Have all been through

Bridge:
Right into the 1860s
If you would ask if there was a man
(A great man, a great man)
His name was great ol' Abe Lincoln
He would put a great big end
To all slavery
Free all Blacks all the Blacks
From sea to shining sea

3rd Verse:
It came in 1863
At his very best
Blacks bouncing around
From those plantations
The greatest thing in the nation
The Emancipation Proclamation
13th Amendment did this
Though it ironically exists.

[Ooooooooooooh]
[Ooooooooooooh]
[Ooooooooooooh]
[Ooooooooooooh]
[Ooooooooooooh]
[Ooooooooooooh]


[Instrumental Break]


[[2x]]
The greatest thing in the nation
The Emancipation Proclamation
13th Amendment did this
Though it ironically exists.


[Oooooooooooooh] (until fade out)
