Lyrics

Neville Brothers

We need everybody to join in
We're trying to find somebody
Who'll understand
We've got ourselves a problem
All over the land

They've gotten to our children
They've taken their minds
Brothers killing brothers
At the drop of a dime, listen

Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
We're dying in the streets, y'all now
Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
Let ’em go

They're down on every corner
They're everywhere
If you're a payin' customer
Then they don't care

We've got to lose the temptation
To live with sin
To find a solution
Look deep within, oh God

Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
Oh, let 'em go now
Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
Let 'em go

You see, all across the nation
We're losing our self-respect
We're running out of patience
We got to find a way to get it back

Oh, let my people go
Oh Lord, let them go
Oh Lord, let them go
Hey now, let 'em go, Lord

Find a way to get our kids
Out of the line
We've got to find a way to stop
All of this crime

They've got 'em shooting up
Smokin' crack, whatever new drug
We've got to find a way to get our kids
To rise up above

Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
We're dying in the streets, y'all now
Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
Let ’em go

Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go
Oh, oh, oh, oh, let my people go

Yeah now, come, come, come
Yeah, my people go
Let ’em go, let ’em go
Let my people go

Yeah now, oh Lord, gotta let ’em go
Let ’em go, let ’em, let ’em, let ’em go
Let my people go now, oh Lord
You gotta let ’em go, you gotta let ’em go
