selma alabama 1965 tried to walk across the bridge, never made it home alive. first they got beaten down by the sheriff's hand, then they got shot down by the klan. they never made it home alive. sitting home in detroit watching her TV show heard the news about selma she says shes got to go. packed her bags, drove all day and all night. gonna go down to selma gonna fight the good fight. but she never made it home alive. this is for the ones that never made it home alive. call them martyrs if you want to we dont mind.
