or
Keb' Mo'

Let my people go

Let my people go

In the swamps of New Orleans
The rain came pouring down
So heavy was the water
That the walls came crashing down
Now I know a survivor
But how the hell you justify
Leaving 100,000 people in water that high
Just struggling for their lives

[Chorus]
I know there's got to be a
Better way
I know there's got to be a
Better way
I know there's got to be a
Better way
And we've got to find it
(Stand up) we've got to find it
(Or fall down) we've got to find it

Politicians are screaming
They say we've got a reason for war
So many people are dying
And we ain't even sure what for
Is it because he's a Muslim?
Tell me is it democracy or is it the oath
It's on the news every day
One paycheck away
And the President's on the golf course

I know there's got to be a
Better way
I know there's got to be a
Better way
I know there's got to be a
Better way
And we've got to find it
(You got to stand together) we've got to find it
(Or we could fall apart) we've got to find it

Sweet buttered craw dad
Delta bread
Hot pepper soul that's been sold out
Lives that were taken before they found out
What life was all about
He's a genius with the lyrics
Started young sipping syrup
And it hurts me to my soul
The way he drinks away the pain
The world's going to lose him
Another young superhero

We've got to find it x8

I see the children on TV
It's become a sign of the times
Glorifying their bodies
Something just don't feel right
Still we keep pretending
That boys and girls are men and women
We watch it and we call it entertainment
And everything is okay as long as somebody's getting paid

I know there's got to be a
Better way
I know there's got to be a
Better way
There's got to be a
Better way
And we've got to find it
We've got to find it
We've got to find it
