when i bought john hammond's autobiography i thought i would find out about the jazz artists he signed/ discovered but it was more about the civil rights movement and stories like the scottsboro boys terror and torture swam through my head. thanks john


She got caught trying to hide
When they asked her why ...she lied
Cause it’s just so easy to point
Than go to the joint

Who cares if strange fruit hangs in trees
Who cares if 6 out of 7 lawyers agree
I care about the entire Jackson County
Who waits for Ruby Bates

They feed it to the young
The morning opinion by evening is a gun
How many balls will you break
How many tragedies will it take
To stay awake

Isnt it true the rain comes again
Dont it make things wet
How many times will the thunder whine
Before man admits he forgets

I heard about an accident on the highway the other day
Broken and bleeding in the car the hospitals not far
Behind the eyes of the ambulance man
Her black head is better dead or buried off the land
What kind of poison has infiltrated the brain
When a man believes another is not the same

I am in love with Ruby Bates because nobody waits for Ruby Bates
