A bullet from the back of a bush
Took Medgar Evers' blood
A finger fired the trigger to
his name
A handle hid out in the dark, a
hand set the spark
Two eyes took the aim, behind a
man's brain
But he can't be blamed
He's only a pawn in their game
A South politician preaches to
the poor white man
"You got more than the blacks,
don't complain
You're better than them, you
been born with white skin"
They explain
And the Negro's name is used,
it is plain
For the politician's gain as he
rises to fame
And the poor white remains on
the caboose of the train
But it ain't him to blame, he's
only a pawn in their game
The deputy sheriffs, the
soldiers, the governors get paid
And the marshals and cops get
the same
But the poor white man's used
in the hands of them all like a
tool
He's taught in his school from
the start, by the rule
