Brother O Brother
Brother OH Brother I really must know
What was the one thing that made you decide to go?
Anger and violence all over the place,
Can this be changed with a single embrace?
Brother OH Brother why can't you see,
The waiting and wondering is just killing me,
News of murders and kidnappings is common place here,
Only the site of your face will calm my worst fear.
Brother OH Brother the price had to be paid
Freedom is not always free I'm afraid.
The commitment you made to protect all of us,
Was paid with your life for peace and justice.
Brother OH Brother I hope you can see
That it was worth this price to keep us all FREE.
