Words and music by brian may


Im a simple man with a simple name


From this soil my people came

In this soil remain oh yeah oh yeah

He made us our shoes

And we trod soft on the land

But the immigrant built roads

On our blood and sand oh yeah


White man white man

Dont you see the light behind your blackened skies

White man white man

You took away the sight to blind my simple eyes


White man white man

Where you gonna hide from the hell youve made


Oh the red man knows wars

With his hands and his knives

On the Bible you swore

Fought your battle with lies oh yeah

Leave my body in shame


Leave my soul in disgrace


But by evry gods name

Say a prayer for your race oh yeah


White man white man

Our country was green and all our rivers wide

White man white man

You came with a gun and soon our children died

White man white man

Dont you give a light for the blood youve shed

White man white man

White man

White man white man

For you battled with lies

White man white man

Still lies


White man white man

Say you look around every skin and bone again


What is left of your dream

Just the words on your stone

A man who learned how to teach

Then forgot how to learn

Oh yeah
