    “open up” 

    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
