I just can’t stand slavery
It is a sin to me
Until the slaves are free of their chains, I will stay enraged
I’ve heard Truth and Garrison
Speak of abolition
Underground Railroad’s great
It’s a start, so I did my part
But with the horrible Compromise of 1850
Kansas-Nebraska Act letting popular sovereignty
Decide if those states will end up free or pro-slavery
Border Ruffians best watch out, oh!
Ooh, slavery must be through
I’ll do what I must do
At Pottawatomie Creek I’ll sneak up and run ‘em through
Free-Soilers are my crew
It’s what God wants me to do
Bleeding Kansas so be it
Slavery, it must be through
And still slavery persists
But in Massachusetts
I got my Secret Six backing plans for my violence
Victory in Kansas and all I hear is freedom, freedom
But not for the slaves of south, cause their masters still beat ‘em
If slavery is to end one thing’s for sure
We got to fight it like we fight a war
Start a slave rebellion by invading Harper’s Ferry
And seize the weapons that are stored there in the armory
Called for thousands of men, but just twenty-one will join me
A saner man, might have just thought twice no!
Ooh! Slavery must be through
Got the guns we need to
Go farm to farm and arm the slaves so they can rebel, too
Wait, we’re surrounded, crew
Farmers, militias too
Is that Robert E Lee with the Marines?
This raid is through
So I’m charged with murder, treason, conspiracy
Sentenced to hang when I am found guilty
I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of
This guilty land can not be purged but with blood
The abolitionist John Brown can’t come to the telegram right now
‘Cause he’s dead
