Words cannot do justice to the memory of this great man
Who preached to the people with a love they could understand
A man who had a dream and the faith to carry through
A savior to a nation though at the time we never knew
A man that preached equality with no thought the color of skin
Lord what we know now had we only known back then
If there’s a thing as perfect salvation he knew how to get us there
But we were to busy with our hatred to even be aware
To preach peace and love in those times took a very caring heart
The saddest part being that he had only begun to start
He had so many gifts that we were robbed from being taught
And so many peaceful battles that never will be fought
There were so many stereotypes that were to fit into the scheme
Cruel for a white boy from Alabama who fell in love with his dream
And to watch my own govenor make a fool out of my state
Showing the whole country the stereotype of southern hate
And there I sat in the middle of what I should be and what I was
Having to keep silent about every wrong or deceitful cause
Then came the news never again would we hear the prophet’s dream
And in my disillusioned world the whole country cried for Dr. King
It took some growing up to see some were glad that he was gone
But for a white man from Alabama, for myself his dream lives on
Missing were the words from the mountain I now can shout
None are better than others, and that’s what he preached about
