When I was a young man, I had to kick and scratch and claw
Now it's like top gun in the Old
I look back at the way I used to look at life 
Soft, white dreams with sugar coated outside 
It was great, so great 
Young and innocent days 
I
by day
But I spent my night time fighting tears back
I prayed and prayed and left messages but never got no hear back
Or so it seemed
A mustard
gun;
He pulled it out and smiled and then he sucked his thumb
His wife was standing by with a leather leash
Fastened to a child who cried beside their
white and he ain't neva' see a white pie 
Man I swear to god I'm being followed by a white guy 
On ya boy man I mean harder den a white tie 
White roll
Tell you a story not a little white lie
Wasn't long tall sally it was no surprise
That's right, tell me that's right
A tough act to follow not too
THE TOURIST
Writer Wynn Stewart and Curtis Leach

I was just a tourist out on the great white way
Where lights make night as bright
Saturday night and it's gettin' late
I'm gettin' hungry, I just can't wait
Not just any kind of burger will do
I'm being hit by those
White
at me
I'm the great white hope
Can't you see
I'm up against the ropes

Don't you know
It's so hard to cope
When you feel
Like the great white hope
see
We'll have a dance of liberty
The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night
The child is black
The child is white
We'll have a dance of Liberty, Liberty!

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Hoping to find a relic such as a tomahawk an axe
Or even an arrowhead left by a race of long since vanished Indians
There's a great thrill and it's
We'll have a dance of liberty
The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black
A child is white
The whole
I was in the desert
Amazed by all that sand
I as in a sea of white
Swimming through the land
Nobody shocked me
Nobody locked me up
Nobody took my
Night owns my white bones
But what's left is still saying
Strange prayers in high places
Wild airs with wilder graces
Birds fly with no motion
the wind and blown for miles
Kansas couldn't keep the child

Hell-bound for the Great White Way
For the tawdry-bawdy burlesque stage, and
Wichita was
I was watching TV late last night
And a scene transported me
Long gone figures came back to life
In a documentary
Though I saw them dance for joy
In the land of the frozen sun
I saw a mighty sculpture, forever changing form
It told me great stories of the
Forthcoming storm

I wandered
me
Past right by a white flash like wat was that?
Niggas still wearin fruity stones man who does that?
White platinum gold rolly with the white
We'll have a dance of liberty
The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black
A child is white
The whole
Where the great ones tremble
In their snow-white shrouds
Waiting underground

If you seek the kingdom come, come along
Waiting by the ridge there'll
When I took my boat out to the White Sea
I had no care in the world
Not a cloud disturbed the sky
I was dreaming only of how it might be
Then
young lover for his bride
And with his own hands built a great house down by the riverside

Now Billy was an honest man he wanted to do what was right
butterfly
I want to ride in a great bronze butterfly
I want to see the sun descend in a great big blue Arabian sky

I want to go where white men never go
snow white boomers,
On his Australian run.

Soon the sleigh was flashing past right over Marble Bar,
'Slow down there,' cried Santa, 'it can't be
