Listen to My Feet Are Tired

 

Words and Music by Bernard Gilbert & Jon Fromer©
Percussion: Ken Burris, Bass: Mark Perna, Keyboard: Nelson Harrison

My feet are tired, my feet are tired
My feet are tired, but my soul is rested

 

1955 that's a lifetime ago Remember"l like Ike"-
Remember Jim Crow?
On a bus in Montgomery -
A southern town
That black woman started something
When she sat down
Thousands walked to work
In the morning light
Thousands walked home
Through the rain at night
Every day for a week,

 

Every week for a month
It took more than a year
Before it was done!

 

If you had been there
You could have heard people say
"I always hoped my kids
Would see a better day,"
Lately I must say I've changed my mind
I want to see freedom in my time!
