Lyrics

Appeal to the governor, of Louisiana You may get an answer the process is slow Federal court won, too much to open He's been there for five years and they won't let him go (Chorus) Tyler is guilty white judges said so What right do we got to say it's not so Tyler is guilty white judges said so What right do we got to say it's not so (saxophone chorus) Testify under pressure, a racist jury Government lawyers it's all for sure Rows of white faces, false accusations He's framed up for murder, they won't let him go (Chorus) His gun was planted, no matching bullets No points on the handle, no proof to show But Tyler, is guilty, the white judges said so They show him no mercy they won't let him go (Chorus) Appeal to the governor, of Louisiana You may get an answer, the process is slow Federal court won, too much to open He's been there for five years, they won't let him go (Chorus X 2) Tyler is guilty, white judges said so They show him no mercy, they won't let him go Tyler is guilty, white judges said so They show him no mercy, they won't let him go
