I'm a simple man with a simple nameFrom this soil my people cameIn this soil remain oh yeah oh yeahHe made us our shoesAnd we trod soft on the landBut the immigrant built roadsOn our blood and sand oh yeah
White man white manDon't you see the light behind your blackened skiesWhite man white manYou took away the sight to blind my simple eyesWhite man white manWhere you gonna hide from the hell you've made
Oh the red man knows warsWith his hands and his knivesOn the Bible you sworeFought your battle with lies oh yeahLeave my body in shameLeave my soul in disgraceBut by ev'ry god's nameSay a prayer for your race oh yeah
White man white manOur country was green and all our rivers wideWhite man white manYou came with a gun and soon our children diedWhite man white manDon't you give a light for the blood you've shed?
White man white manWhite manWhite man white manFor you battled with liesWhite man white manStill liesWhite man white manSay you look around every skin and bone again
What is left of your dream?Just the words on your stoneA man who learned how to teachThen forgot how to learnOh yeah
