Martin Luther King
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Our champion is dead and gone
(Martin Luther King)
And there is nobody else to lead us on
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
Martin Luther King is dead and gone
(Martin Luther King)
Now who do we have to lead us on?
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
As a civil rights leader he stood for his rights
(Hallelujah)
And was assassinated one early April night
(Amen)
Well now that his precious blood was shed
Plenty go live and plenty go dead

It's going be a long hard summer
Discrimination has gone too far
Luther King is dead and now this we cannot avoid
Segregation must be destroyed

An apostle of peace was he
(Martin Luther King)
He gave his life for racial equality
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
During his struggles to try and equalise
(Martin Luther King)
He was awarded that coveted Nobel prize
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
Brutally beaten and jailed many many many times
(Hallelujah)
Peaceful demonstrations were his only crimes
(Amen)
Yet still he walked, I said he walked in the footsteps of Jesus
And just like Christ he died for us

It's going be a long hard summer
Discrimination has gone too far
Luther King is dead and now this we cannot avoid
Segregation must be destroyed

An honourable, peaceful and noble man
(Martin Luther King)
He was the greatest civil rights leader in the land
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
Assassinated at the age of thirty-nine
(Martin Luther King)
He was murdered while he was still in his prime
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
But he had a dream for America in his plan
(Hallelujah)
Where the blacks and the whites will walk together hand in hand
(Amen)
And live in unity as one
Though he is dead I say that dream lives on

It's going be a long hard summer
Discrimination has gone too far
Luther King is dead and now this we cannot avoid
Segregation must be destroyed

Now longer will we bow to any man
(Martin Luther King)
No longer will we live in subjection
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
Oh we have suffered too much, too much in the past
(Martin Luther King)
No more will we accept second class
(Martin Luther King, Martin Luther King)
Equality I know one day we got to get
(Hallelujah)
Oh yes it is as inevitable as death
(Amen)
So let us unite peacefully, we got to be strong
Leave all the violence to Stokely Carmichael or H. Rap Brown

It's going be a long hard summer
Discrimination has gone too far
Luther King is dead and now this we cannot avoid
Segregation must be destroyed
