Deep Down South, By JaJa Teule

Deep Down South in Alabama

I been down the dirt roads deep down south in Alabama I tended the cotton fields prayed in the shack and folded clothes til the sunsets deep down south in Alabama but when the night falls me and the brothers and sisters meet remembering our land before we were took from the belly of our mother singing songs of redemption and suddenly life is put into these tired hands and feet the drum is beat the fires lit and we fade into the ecstasy of oneness the connection the struggle the joy the bliss and being happy that I nor they are from this terrible land deep down south in Alabama.
