Ricordiamo che Jim Crow ("Jim Cornacchia") era il soprannome dispregiativo collettivo che i bianchi razzisti del sud davano a ogni persona di colore. [CCG/AWS Staff]
Old Jim Crow
Where you been baby
Down Mississippi and back again
Old Jim Crow don’t you know
It’s all over now

Old Jim Crow
What’s wrong with you
It ain’t your name
It’s the things you do
Old Jim Crow don’t you know
It’s all over now

Old Jim Crow
You’ve been around too long
Gotta work the devil
’til your dead and gone
Old Jim Crow
Yes, don’t you know
It’s all over now
It’s all over now

Old Jim Crow
You know it’s true
When you hurt my brother
You hurt me too
Old Jim Crow don’t you know
It’s all over now

Old Jim Crow
I thought I had you beat
Now I see you walkin’
And talkin’ up and down my street
Old Jim Crow don’t you know
It’s all over now

Old Jim Crow
You’ve been around too long
Gotta work the devil
’til your dead and gone
Old Jim Crow don’t you know
It’s all over
All over
Oh lord, it’s all over
All over
It’s all over
It’s all over
It’s all over now
