Ow

An Indian woman buried her grandpa in the Black Hills
When she was young
He used to tell her that these hills belonged to her still
And even though injustice took them hills away
"One day we'll get 'em back," he said
And the sun's gonna shine that day
When we say, right the wrong

Before she laid him down to rest
She heard his voice in the wilderness
Sayin' "I got 6 feet of it back!" huh
Now we can right the wrong

Right the wrong, hear the song
Before long you won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would you rather die knowin' that you did or keep livin' in shame?

Did you hear the one about the boy just 17?
3 Years hard time for stealin' ice cream
First offense and all his dreams are gone
How long before we right the wrong?

Right the wrong, hear the song
Before long you won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would you rather die knowin' that you did or keep livin' in shame?

Right the wrong
2 3, Uh
1 2, 1 2, Come on
Right the wrong, baby
Yeehoo! Ow
Far be it for me to say
It seem like we could stop the flow of snow in the sky today
But I guess the weather man, he likes the rain
Ain't that insane?
Now sing

Right the wrong, hear the song
Before long you won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would you rather die knowin' that you did or keep livin' in shame?

Come on, come on, come on! (Right the wrong)
Can you hear me, baby? (Right the wrong)
I'm 6 feet in the grave
I'm 6 feet in the grave! (Right, right) (Right, right)

(Right the wrong)

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
This young man with a talented soul died when he wanted
The life that lives should not be pitied
Nor shall the guilty be forgiven
Until they can find it in their hearts to right the wrong

NELSON, PRINCE ROGERS
