William Moore The Mailman

Pete Seeger
Language: English



William Moore you were a mailman,
You never missed a day,
You always got your letter thru,
Nobody blocked your way,
Nobody blocked your way, I know,
Nobody blocked your way,
You always got your letter thru,
Nobody blocked your way.
- It wasn’t an or-din-ary message -

One day you had a message
You felt you had to shout
It wasn’t an ordinary message
Took you beyond your route.
Took you beyond your route, I know
Took you beyond your route
It wasn’t an ordinary message
Took you beyond your route.

The message dealt with brotherhood
And love and friendship too
It wasn’t a regular message
So they wouldn't let you thru.
They wouldn't let you thru, I know
They wouldn't let you thru
It wasn’t a regular message
So they wouldn't let you thru.

They stopped you, William Moore, I know
But your message did get thru
For they can kill a man for sure
But not his message too.
But not his message too, I know
But not his message too
For they can kill a man for sure
But not his message too.

Your message did get thru, I know
Your message did get thru
For they can kill a man for sure
But your message did get thru.
