Steel Pulse - Uncle George (Re-Recording)

Jackson..
Hey!

Militant, revelution,
Oh toh toh, easy now, aye
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)

Malicious unjustice society
He became a revolutionary

Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)

The day I heard George Jackson died
Blood was in my eye
Can make a champ roll down the system?
Was my battle cry
He was advise and pleading guilty
For the little monkey dollars he stole
Battle scars of fair unjustice the truth
Was never told no way, 'cause

(They framed him Yes they framed him)
If I could back up George
(They framed him Yes they framed him)
Accused of killin' a prison guard
(They tamed him Yes they tamed him)
I say dem lock up George yeah
(They chained him Yes they chained him)
Fightin' for a cause now

(Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
(Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
(Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)

Malicious unjustice society
He became a revolutionary

Jackson (Jackson, Jackson) George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)

(..)

Seven year confinement put in an resistance
Because he was demanding his rights
Down there in the dungeon, counting in a pod
His parole was out-of-sight, yeah

(They framed him Yes they framed him)
Three Cheers For Uncle George
(They framed him Yes they framed him)
Torture and darkness was all he saw
(They tamed him Yes they tamed him)
A battled clad trench made no one known
(They chained him Yes they chained him)
Rebelling for a cause

(Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)
George Jackson (Jackson, Jackson)

Malicious unjustice society
He became a revolutionary
(Jackson, Jackson) George Jackson..
