Black Like Me
Mickey Guyton Lyrics


Little kid in a small town
I did my best just to fit in
Broke my heart on the playground, mm
When they said I was different

Oh, now
Now, I'm all grown up and nothin' has changed
Yeah, it's still the same

It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be black like me

My daddy worked day and night
For an old house and a used car
Just to live that good life, mm
It shouldn't be twice as hard

Oh, now
Now, I'm all grown up and nothin' has changed
Yeah, it's still the same

It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be, oh, black like me

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, I know
I'm not
The only one
Whoa, yeah
Who feels
Like I
I don't belong

It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
And if you think we live in the land of the free
Then you should try to be, oh, black like me

Oh, and some day we'll all be free
And I'm proud to be, oh, black like me
And I'm proud to be black like me
Proud to be black like me
Black like me

This still feels like a dream. I couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you for your prayers and love on a day that I will remember forever. This is for my son. Everything that I am is for him. 🖤

I so love this song and it was so brave of you to make this recording. It tells of the truths we face, but are not realized by many. Thank you for gracefully sharing our story. Long HUGS.

@NekoPetrovsky It's funny she did the National Anthem and then sing a song , about being black in America like her.
