Lyrics
Lord tell me why a white man ain't worth nothing in this world no more
Lord tell me how you 'spect me to stand up tall and proud
I did just what you told, I done everything you said
But the way I'm doing lately, I could have stood in bed
So Lord tell me why, a white man ain't worth nothing in this world no more

Lord tell me when a white man's gonna be all right again
Please fix it Lord, they took back everything we been working for
Now when the riots tore our city I stood watch outside our home
My kids crying daddy why can't they leave us alone
Split level in Valencia where the cops reside
We had to walk away and left old memories inside
Lord tell me why, a white man ain't worth nothing in this world no more

You can walk across the silvery moon and get back home all right
But it ain't safe to walk the streets of your home town at night
And I'm a Lord man from the Lord land
But a Lord man ain't worth nothing in this world no more

That's too bad
What happened?
Everyone was your friend
Where has everybody gone?
What ever happen to 'hi howdy neighbor, nice to see ya
Company coming up the road
