If There's a Hell Below We're All Going to Go
Curtis Mayfield Lyrics


Sisters, niggers, whities
Jews and the crackers
Don't worry, if there's hell below, we're all gotta go
Ah

Sisters, brothers and the whities
Blacks and the crackers
Police and their backers
They're all political actors

Hurry
People running from their worries
While the judge and the juries
Dictate the law that's partly flaw
Cat calling, love balling, fussing and cussing
Top billing now is killing
For peace no-one is willing
Kind of make you get that feeling

Everybody smoke
Use the pill and the dope
Educated fools
From uneducated schools
Pimping people is the rule
Polluted water in the pool
And Nixon talking about don't worry
He says don't worry
He says don't worry
He says don't worry

But they don't know
There can be no show
And if there's a hell below
We're all gonna go

Everybody's praying
And everybody's saying
But when come time to do
Everybody's laying

Just talking about don't worry
They say don't worry
They say don't worry
They say don't worry

Sisters, brothers and the whities
Blacks and the crackers
Police and their backers
They're all political actors

Smoke, the pill and the dope
Educated fools
From uneducated schools
Pimping people is the rule
Polluted water in the pool

And everybody saying don't worry
They say don't worry
They say don't worry
They say don't worry

But they don't know
There can be no show
And if there's a hell below
We're all gonna go

Lord, what we gonna do
Tell me what we gonna do
If everything I say is true?
This ain't no way it ought to be
If only all the mass could see

But they keep talkin' 'bout don't worry
They say don't worry
They say don't worry
They say don't worry

PAISLEY PRINCESS

Curtis Mayfield was the man..his own man. He owned his music, didn't let people tell him what to do, and didn't care what people took from his message. A man who truly spoke for many

Curtis Mayfield told the truth. He kept being honest until his death- he did not sell out, as most of us do. Oh yes, he had some of the best accompaniment ever and could the man sing!
