reggie miles NW Folklife threatens street performers (Seattle) (162* d) RE: NW Folklife threatens street performers 10 May 10


Blackballed by Reggie Miles 5/25/2009

I got blackballed, blacklisted
Cuz I wasn't afraid and I resisted

My freedom, denied
Cuz I took a stand for what's right with pride

Got demonized, pushed around
Cuz I believed in my cause and stood my ground

Got knocked down, stepped on
And I didn't do a damn thing wrong

When sweet liberty becomes a crime
Our sacrifice to get it ain't worth a dime

You can spread your lies 'bout me all day long
You'll never stop me from singin' my song


Got blacklisted, blackballed
Innocent and yet the police were called

Denied my freedom
Treated like I was some kind of a bum

Got pushed around, demonized
For exposin' the truth and revealin' your lies

Got stepped on, knocked down
Cuz I believed in my cause and stood my ground

Folk ain't no four letter word
& singin' ain't illegal last I heard

When sweet liberty becomes a crime
Our sacrifice to get it ain't worth a dime
