Lyrics

 

They used to bury blacks in the black graveyard
Next to the white ones, that’s the way it was
Black bodies segregated from white bodies
They all disintegrated, every body does

Now Michael Brown’s buried in that once-white graveyard
All the new customers in there are black
His granddaddy’s over in the black graveyard
Buried under trash and junked-out Cadillacs

Whether it’s white skin or black skin that covers up your white bones
When you die they lie alone

If Strom Thurmond went to white hell
I wonder what his black Satan had to say
‘Bout how ol’ Strom had himself a half-white daughter
After jumping the bones of Daddy’s black maid

Whether it’s white skin or black skin that covers up your white bones
When you die they lie alone

If Jefferson Davis went to white heaven
I wonder if his white God forgave
And if Jefferson Davis is in white heaven
I wonder if his white God lets him whip his slaves
