We People Who Are Darker than Blue (Album Version) - Curtis Mayfield

We people who are darker than blue

 

Don't let us stand around this town

 

And let what others say come true

 

We're just good for nothing

 

they all figure

 

A boyish grown up shiftless jigger

 

Now we can't hardly stand for that

 

Or is that really where it's at

 

We people who are darker than blue

 

They got no time for segregating

I'm talking `bout brown and yellow too

 

High yellow gal can't you tell

 

I'm just the surface of our

dark deep well

 

If your mind could really see

 

You'd know your color same as me

Pardon me brother

 

As you stand in your glory

 

I know you won't mind

 

If I tell the whole story

 

Now I know

 

We have great respect

 

For the sister and the mother

 

It's even better yet

 

But there's the joker in the street

 

Loving one brother and

killing the other

When the time comes and

we are really free

There'll be no brothers left you see

 

We people who are darker than blue

 

Don't let us hang around this town

 

And let what others say come true

 

We're just good for nothing

 

They all figure

 

A boyish grown up shiftless jigger

Now we can't hardly stand for that

 

Or is that really where it's at

 

Pardon me brother

 

As you stand in your glory

 

I know you won't mind

Now I know

 

We have great respect

For the sister and the mother

It's even better yetIf I tell the whole story
