Im not afraid of the black man running
Hes got it right hes got a better life coming
I dont care what the captain said
I fold it right at the top of my head
I lost my sight and the state packs in
I follow my heart and it leads me right to Jackson

Oh Keller, oh oh oh
She gave us a medal she gave us a map
Oh Canner Row, oh oh oh
If seeing is right, then look where youre at

Im not afraid of Nichols Park
I ride the train and I ride it after dark
Im not afraid to get it right
I turn around and I give it one more try

I said things that I meant to say
The bandstand chairs and the Dewey Day parade
I go out to the golden age
The spirit is right and the spirit doesnt change

Oh Keller, oh oh oh
She gave us mirror she gave us a map
Oh Canner Row, oh oh oh
If seeing is right then look where youre at

Andrew Jackson, all Im asking
Show us the wheel and give us the wine
Woohoo, woohoo
Raise the banner, Jackson hammer

Everyone goes to the capitol line
Woohoo, woohoo
Colored preacher, nice to meet you!
The spirit is here and the spirit is fine!
Woohoo, woohoo
Education, ask the nation

You gave us our sight and the hearing is fine
Woohoo, woohoo
Andrew Jackson all Im asking
Give us the wheel and give us the wine
