White Man Words and music by Brian May I'm 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 Don't 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 you've 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 ev'ry god's 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 Don't you give a light for the blood you've 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
