Pablo Rosa Parks-Congressional Medal of Honor (55* d) Lyr Add: ROSA PARKS (D. Williams) 06 Feb 00


Sorry this comes through unformatted--I'm a novice, still puzzling over the HTML tutorial in the Links section, trying multiple unsuccessful Blue Clickies in self-addressed e-mails.
I have the music here as well. Is it really not on the DT?

There's this, by D. Williams.

ROSA PARKS
(D. Williams)

In Montgomery Alabama not a long time ago
A black woman sat down on a bus
She was tired she did day work
She sewed clothes, her feet hurt
And since that day she changed the world for us.

CHORUS: Cause she said, "No sir, I won't get up."
"I'm tired and I want to sit down and I won't get up."
You can talk about Martin Luther King,
Have demonstrations and everything.
Just remember who began it, Rosa Parks.

In this wild and wicked world, tell me what kind of man
Would say to hard working woman, "Lady, get up."
She was just like me and you
And she did what she could do, she said... CHORUS
