    These ol' bones has a story to tell
    They tell ya of a life that wasnt so swell

    My bones tell you as story of slavery
    How I endured many nytes of battery

    Been sold, bought, used, and abused
    Been lied, cheated, defeated left confused

    Ya'll dont understand what my life has been
    To be left with out a mother, father or a friend

    My scars run deep with in my old bones
    Ya'll take for granted of your freedom and a place to call home

    Dont know what's it like not to have nice things
    All so focus upon your petty blings

    Back in the day Church was all I had
    And my people was united we didnt get mad
    Still I'm sad

    As I lie in my shallow grave with my battle scars
    Squirming, tossing how God wont let you people get far

    My children I never knew
    My whole life was filled with the color of blue
    I held true

    That one day these Ol' bones will be free
    And that history wont forget about me
    For I fought back my fate was left hanging from a tree

    Still I hope through my sacrifice all will remember thee
    But all I can see

    Is our people killing, striking, cheating, and full of deception
    My brothas/sista's your leading into a place of destruction

    For all the beatings, the hangings the suffering I feel was all in vain
    You people dont know the true meaning of pain
    Scared of a little rain
    Some chose to be vain

    To the fact that your ancestors all in lie in disqust
    I tell them there's no need to make a fuss

    Over the future of today
    That why i say

    Everyone will go on, and ponder what i say tomorrow
    All must not forget the pain and sorrow

    Be thankful for your strength, your will, your love, your life, your family and determination
    Its time we unites as one become the intended nation

    I feel tonight I had to come through
    Take you people back to school

    All you see is these Ol' bones
    Remember you too have to come home

    Can you truly say your bones will tell a story

    These Ol' Bones...........
