Lyrics

This little song that I'm singin' about People you all know is true If you black and gotta work for a livin' now This is what they been sayin' to you They said if you white, you's alright If you is brown, stick around But if you's black, oh brother Get back, get back, get back... I was in a place one night They was all havin' fun They was all buyin' beer and wine But they would not sell me none They said if you white, you's alright If you is brown, you can stick around But if you's black, mm mm brother Get back, get back, get back... I went to an employment office I got a number and I got in line They called everybody's number But they never did call mine They said if you white, you's alright If you is brown, you can stick around But if you's black, mm mm brother Get back, get back, get back... Me and a man was working side by side And this is what it meant They was payin' him a dollar an hour But they was payin' me fifty cent They said if you was white, you'd be alright If you is brown, you could stick around But if you's black, whoa brother Get back, get back, get back... I helped win sweet victories With my plow and hoe Now, I want you to tell me, brother Whatchu gonna do about the ol' Jim Crow Now, if you's white, you's alright If you is brown, stick around But if you black, whoa brother Get back, get back, get back...
