Lyrics



George was oh so tall
Strong as steel
Ready to help anyone
He was really real

He gave a bill of 20
For a purchase he had made
A 20-dollar bill
Was the end of his days

I can’t breathe, he said
These words sent a chill
Knee on his neck
For a 20 dollar bill

When George took his last breath
His soul raised to the sky
We all cried out for justice
Oh why, oh why, oh why

George he’d been a thinkin’
“Bout maybe movin’ on
To a different town
A place where he belongs

A place where his value
Is not the color of his skin
But the content of his character
His love for all men

I can’t breathe, he cried
asking for some aid
We saw George pleading
Momma, he did say

When George took his last breath
His soul raised to the sky
We all cried out for justice
Oh why, oh why, oh why

And we all cried out for justice
Oh why, oh why, oh why

Now George is off to heaven
Where surely he’ll fit in
Where being tall and being black
Ain’t no mortal sin
