We've been 'buked and we've been scorned,
We've been talked about sure's you're born
But we'll never turn back
No, we'll never turn back

We have walked through the shadows of death
We had to walk all by ourselves
But we'll never turn back
No, we'll never turn back

We have serverd our time in jail
With no money for to go our bail
But we'll never turn back
No, we'll never turn back

We have hung our heads and cried
Cried for those like Lee who died
Died for you, and died for me
Died for the cause of equality
But we'll never turn back
No, we'll never turn back
Until we've all been freed
and we have equality
