He was my brotherFive years older than IHe was my brotherTwenty-three years old the day he diedFreedom writerThey cursed my brother to his faceGo home outsiderThis town's gonna be your buryin' placeHe was singin' on his kneesAn angry mob trailed alongThey shot my brother deadBecause he hated what was wrongHe was my brotherTears can't bring him back to meHe was my brotherAnd he died so his brothers could be freeHe died so his brothers could be free
