Southern Man

{Refrain}
Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

/ Dm - Fmaj7 - / Bb - G7 - / : / Dm - Bb Gm /

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern man when will you pay them back
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

/ Dm - Bb Gm / / / A - - - / /

{Refrain}

Lily Belle, your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man comin' round
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?
