Orange Blossom Special
I'd sing more about moral of this land
but all God's children ain't free;
I'd open up every door I can,
cause all God's children ain't free.
I met a beaten broken man,
he shovels dirt but got no land,
and he held out his hand to me.
All God's children ain't free.

I'd sing along too a silly song
but all God's children ain't free
I'm gonna sing the blues for the men they done wrong
Cause all God's children ain't free
Mister, how 'bout the man you condemn to die
but takin' everything that he's livin' by
and reject him from society.
All God's children ain't free
No reject him from society
All God's children ain't free

I'd be happy walking any street
but all God's children ain't free
I'd have a smile for all I meet
but all God's children ain't free
I'd whistle down the road
but I wouldn't feel right
I'd hear somebody cryin' out at night
From a share-cropper's shack or penitentiary
All God's children ain't free
From a share-cropper's shack or penitentiary
All God's children ain't free...
