Mary Wilson, Co-Founder of the Supremes and U.S. Cultural Ambassador recorded and released this great song in 1992. It has a definite hot groove going, but also the words are very poignant and thought provoking. Written by Tena Clark and Dee Harvey it speaks of self-determination, reliability and the urgency of NOW!

Check it out.
All my life I've been told what I can and cannot do
But the world is turning
I've got some news for you
There's a storm a-raging
Directed by a higher power
There's a need for changing
We're coming to the final hour
When I speak my mind
And say I got a tip
Don't worry, be happy
I ain't gonna quit, no

CHORUS:
Ain't gonna walk that line
No compromise
I've seen the truth (Hey, hey, hey!)
And the truth has cut me loose (Yes!)
Ain't gonna walk that line
No compromise
I've seen the truth and I've got nothing to lose

Oh, oh! Oh, oh...
You can lead a horse to water
But you cannot make him drink
You can a show a man the writing
But you cannot make him think
Let my "yeses" be my yeses
My "nos" be my nos
I'm through stradling fences
I'm gonna carry my own load
It's so simple
Why can't they see
I'm no better than you
You're no better than me oh, oh

Ain't gonna walk that line
No compromise
I've seen the truth (Hey, hey, hey!)
And the truth has cut me loose (Yes!)
Ain't gonna walk that line
No compromise
I've seen the truth and I've got nothing to lose

I've gotta be free to think
Free to change
Free to know a better world's calling my name
Whoa, oh, oh! Oo!
I've got to be free to think
I've got to be free to think
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh....

Ain't gonna walk that line
No compromise
I've seen the truth
And the truth has cut me loose
Ain't gonna walk that line
No compromise
I've seen the truth and I've got nothing to lose
Repeat chorus with ad libs until fade.
