lirik lagu a cotton field away – kate campbell


a child of three
reaches out to touch
and only sees
pretty powder puffs
down the road
a black child plays
but the dreams he holds lie
a cotton field away

the fires burn bright
a window breaks
another one dies
a momma’s heart aches
behind locked doors
a white man prays
and thanks the lord he lives
a cotton field away

if we could see
beyond the clouds
we both might be
on common ground

we met in school
by court’s decree
i learned real soon
you were a lot like me
across the land
they say things have changed
but still we stand
a cotton field away
