"The Slave" as written by and Pauline Annita/benbrook Taylor....
If the colors in the music
The kisses are in the love
Surely, surely, surely you'll forgive me
For giving it up

The hands are in the soil
The melody's in the mouth
Everybody sing "Go down Moses"
To the deep south

"Swing Down" everybody knows
Bring it on and then swing down low
Meet you at the river babe
'cause I don't got much left to say

'cept for "All this is a dirty trick"
Bury me when the moon
Is lit like a fire in the sky
Let me see your eyes one last time
Turn around babe
And let me take what's mine

Turn around babe (this could be ugly)
And let me take what's mine
