Her face is cracked from smilin'
All the fears that she's been hidin'
And it seems that pretty soon, everybody's gonna know
And her voice is sore from shoutin'
Cheerin' winners who are losin'
And she wonders if their days are few
And soon they'll have to go

My, my, my, I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band
We're gonna dance and sing in celebration
We're in the promised land

She hears them talk of new ways
To protect the home she lives in
Then she wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door
Her name is Brown or White or Black
You know her very well
You hear her cries of mercy
As the winners toll the bell

My, my, my, I'm so happy
I'm gonna join the band, yeah
We're gonna sing and dance in celebration
A-we're in the promised land

Oh, there is a train that leaves the station
Headed for your destination
But the price you pay to nowhere
Has increased a dollar more
Yes, it has

And if you walk you're gonna get there
Although it takes just a little longer
And when you see 'em in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan

Oh, yeah, you'll moan
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You will moan
You're gone
You're gone, you're gone, yeah
You're gone, yeah
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
You are gone
You are gone
my, my, yeah

If you walk, you're gonna get there
Although it takes a little longer
And when you see them in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan

Live version (1976)

Her face is cracked from smilin'
All the fears that she's been hidin'
And she wants that pretty soon, everybody's gonna know

And her voice is sore from shoutin'
Cheerin' winners who are losin'
And she wonders if their days are few
And soon they'll have to go

My, my, my, I'm so happy, I'm gonna join the band
We're gonna sing and dance in celebration
We're in the promised land

She hears them talk of new ways to protect the home she lives in
She wonders what it's all about
When they break down the door

Her name is Brown or White or Black, you know her very well
You hear her cries of "mercy" as the winners toll

My, my, I'm so happy, I'm gonna join the band
And we're gonna dance and sing in celebration
A-we're in the promised land

Oh, there is a station
And for your information
But the price you pay to nowhere has increased a dollar more

And you walk you're gonna get there
Though it takes a little longer
And when you see them in the distance
You will wring your hands and moan

Oh, yeah, you'll moan
A-you will moan
A-help me hear them moan

Oh, yeah, it's all right

Good evening!
