The Poor People’s Campaign: A Moral Revival

Written for the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival You can hear the melody at:

 

There’s something that’s troubling the Grannies,
So we toss and we turn late at night,
Wond’rin’ why there are so many hungry
In a land that’s so rich, that ain’t right!
It’s time for a moral revival so
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign
To end poverty in our nation
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign.

The government spends all our taxes
For fighting in lands far away,
Killing women and kids without reason;
It’s no wonder our hair’s turning gray.
But it’s time for a moral revival so
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign
To end senseless wars ’cross the planet
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign.

They’re drilling and fracking and dumping
To fatten their wallets, you see,
And they don’t really care if we live or die
It’s enough to make Mother Earth weep.
Now it’s time for a moral revival so
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign
To stop them from pois’ning our planet,
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign.

Equality for all the people
They say is the law of the land;
But our system is blatantly racist
So together for justice we’ll stand.
And it’s time for a moral revival so
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign
And together we’ll pick up the torch and work
For the national Poor People’s Campaign.

We’re not afraid of their handcuffs;
They can lock us in jail if they must;
But we Grannies won’t sit by in silence
While they throw us all under the bus.
And it’s time for a moral revival so
We’ve joined the Poor People’s Campaign
[And we want all you folks to join with us
In the national Poor People’s Campaign.] 2x
