    There's a river running sweat right through our land,
    Driven by a man with a bullwhip in his hand
    And I've taken just as much as I can stand
    Oh, we've got to free our brothers from their
    Shackles if we can

    Most nights I have to watch my woman cry,
    Every day I watch the colonel smile,
    His painted ladies riding in from town
    I swear one day I'm gonna burn that whore
    House to the ground

    Slave! Slave!
    To fight the violence we must be brave,
    Hold on strong
    To the love God gave, slave

    There's a rumor of a war that's yet to come
    That may free our families and our sons,
    It may lay green lands to barren wastes,
    The price of release is a bitter blow to face
    This song was submitted on October 18th, 2016.
