India'Song
by India.Arie



Too much hypocrisy in this old southern town for me
Way back in 1619 we begin this tragic story
Thrown into slaveries den, the crime was the color of skin
Never to see the light of the past again

And I wanna go where the mountains are high enough to echo my song
I wanna go where the rivers run deep enough to drown my shame
I wanna go where the stars shine bright enough to show me the way
I wanna go where the wind calls my name
Wind is calling, India, India, India

It's a typical Savannah day
So I take my guitar to the park and I play
Sitting up under the live oak tree is the strangest feeling came over me
Is this the tree where my brother was hung?
Is this the ground where his body was brung?
God gave to me the gift of song
And so I dedicate this one

And I wanna go where the mountains are high enough to echo my song
I wanna go where the rivers run deep enough to drown my shame
I wanna go where the stars shine bright enough to show me the way
I wanna go where the wind calls my name, India, India, India

Superiority, who have you better than me
Wasting precious time on racist mentality
This is only the beginning
Your flesh will be pushing up daisies in the ending
Spirit know no color, either your a hater or a lover


I wanna go where the mountains are high enough to echo my song
I wanna go where the rivers run deep enough to drown my shame
I wanna go where the stars shine bright enough to show me the way
I wanna go where the wind calls my name, India, India, India

I wanna go where the mountains are high enough to echo my song
I wanna go where the rivers run deep enough to drown my shame
I wanna go where the stars shine bright enough to show me the way
I wanna go where the wind calls my name
The wind is calling, India, India, India
