"Little Brother (Make a Way)" as written by Carl William Smith, Henry Ervin Bush and Marshall Jones....
Spoken:
Now all a-you young folks, ravin'
An' hollerin' about how bad you want to be free

But let me tell ya what it was like in my day
For an' old man like me
Are you ready? (yeah))

Take it on, little brother, an'make a way
I said, take it on little brother, take it further

Now I had to work, ev'ryday
On my job, I didn't get much pay
Had to say 'yes sir' to the other man
I was too confused, to understand

I had to things, yeah, against my will
If I hadn't looked further
You wouldn't have made it

Take it on, little brother, take it further
I said take it on, little brother an' make a way

Now you've got the future, in your hand
Now don't you be, no lazy man
We laid the ground, an' made the way for you
Come on an'show us, that you're proud of us

You have a hard, time to get through
But keep on pushin', we're right behind you

Take it on, little brother, take it further
I said take it on, little brother an' make a way

Take it on, little brother, an'make a way
I said, take it on, little brother, an'take it further

Uh, now I had to work, ev'ryday
On my job, I didn't get much pay
Had to say 'yes sir', to other man
I was too confused, to understand
I had to do things, yeah against my will
If I hadn't of moved further, you wouldn't have made it

Take it on, little brother, take it further, yeah, um!
I said take it on, little brother, an' make a way
