Git Back Blues

Git Back Blues
(Big Bill Broonzy)

Just listen to this song I'm singing, brother
You know it's true
If you're black and got to work for a living, boy
This is what they'll say

Now, if you're white, you're right
But if you're brown, hang around
And if you're black, oh brother
Git back, git back, git back, git back

I was in a place one night
They was all having fun
They was all drinking beer and wine
But me, I couldn't buy none

Me and a man's working side by side
This is what it meant
He was getting a dollar an hour
When I was making fifty cents

I helped build this country
I fought for it too
Now I guess that you can see
What a black man have to do

From A Treasury of Folk Songs, Kolb
