Lyrics

Even My White Shirt Is Black © Paul J Rogers 2020

I walk and I talk to left
Well, that's true
When the line is a straight line
I'm far from the queue
Sing songs of Earth justice
Since I was child
Didn't think I'd be singing them
All of my life

Even my white shirt is black
Took a course on the world
And there's no turning back
A headline is a deadline
When nothing is sure
A coal mine is shot gun
If it kills you real slow

It's real slow
It’s real slow

Save women and children
Don't throw me an ore
If a boat is to save me
I won't reach the shore
Nature is hungry
To heal what we've done
But to learn from her sting
Shows there's more pain to come

Even my white shirt is black
Took a course on the world
And there's no turning back
A headline is a deadline
When nothing is sure
A coal mine is shot gun
If it kills you real slow

It's real slow
It's real slow

Even my white shirt (black coal)
Even my white shirt (brown coal)
Even my white shirt (stop coal)
Even my white shirt (stop....)

As stewards of the Earth
We must steer a new course
These energy barons
Rape Earth to the core
We've gotten much better
In accounting these days
But the zeros I'm counting
Is that zero has changed

Save us now
Go save us now
From greed just save us now
Save us now
Go save us now
From greed just save us now
