I woke up this morning There were tears all in my bed They killed a man I really loved They shot him through the head Lord, Lord they cut George Jackson down Lord, Lord they laid him in the ground Sent him off to prison For a seventy dollar robbery Closed thé door behind him And threw away the key Lord, Lord they cut George Jackson down Lord, Lord they laid him in the ground He wouldn't take shit f rom no one He wouldn't bow down or kneel The authorities they hated him Because he was just too real Lord, Lord they cut George Jackson down Lord, Lord they laid him in the ground The prison guards they cursed him as they watched him f rom above But they were frightened by his power They were scared of his lave Lord, Lord they cut George Jackson down Lord, Lord they laid him in the ground Sometimes I think this whole world Is one big prison yard Some of us are prisoners And the rest of us are guards Lord, Lord they cut George Jackson down Lord, Lord they laid him in the ground
