Selma, Alabama, 1965, tried to walk across the bridge
Never mad it home alive
First they got beaten down by the sheriff's hand,
Then they got shot down by the klan
They never made it home alive.
Sitting home in Detroit, watching her TV show,
Heard the news about Selma, she says she's got to go.
Packed her bags, drove all day and all night.
Gonna go down to Selma gonna fight the good fight.
But she never made it home alive.
This is for the ones who never made it home alive.
Call em martyrs if you want to, we don't mind [x8]
