theres a dingdong at my doorbell
and an angel says its comin
browneyed handsome man from memphis
but a guitar he aint strumming
Love has seen his time get shortchanged
through the southside of chicago
so he came to california
and the cops beat up his brother.
and the tears they have stopped flowing
and the boy he has stopped growing
but his heart it cant help knowing
that the time it sure is coming.
MLK Day comes but once a year
and the angel says get ready
for the tables set and waiting
sure your legs they both are steady
