  1. White Bones

From the recording White Bones

Lyrics

 
They used to bury blacks in the black graveyardNext to the white ones, that’s the way it wasBlack bodies segregated from white bodiesThey all disintegrated, every body does
Now Michael Brown’s buried in that once-white graveyardAll the new customers in there are blackHis granddaddy’s over in the black graveyardBuried under trash and junked-out Cadillacs
Whether it’s white skin or black skin that covers up your white bonesWhen you die they lie alone
If Strom Thurmond went to white hellI wonder what his black Satan had to say‘Bout how ol’ Strom had himself a half-white daughterAfter jumping the bones of Daddy’s black maid
Whether it’s white skin or black skin that covers up your white bonesWhen you die they lie alone
If Jefferson Davis went to white heavenI wonder if his white God forgave And if Jefferson Davis is in white heavenI wonder if his white God lets him whip his slaves
