Jim Crow

Cletus Got Shot
Language: English



In the South there lives a man,
Ten feet tall with blood red hands;
And he never, no never loses control

He is gracious to the poor
He never asked for any more
For a dollar a day you can be his modern slave

Old Jim Crow is his name
He ran this town with no shame
He is the law and the law is here for him

There is no working class;
just the ash of the working poor
If you had a boss, your boss was Old Jim Crow

Old Jim Crow is a ruthless man
All that he knows is the Ku Klux Klan

Old Jim he up and died;
A bullet in his eye
You might have killed the man,
but his spirit flies on

Well, if you want your life back,
then don't ask Jim for jack
'Cause he'll never lift a hand for you

Old Jim Crow is a ruthless man
All that he knows is the Ku Klux Klan

Old Jim Crow is a ruthless man
All that he knows is the Ku Klux Klan

In the south there lived a man,
Ten feet tall with blood red hands;
and he never
no never
lost control..
