"John Brown" as written by Adam L. Levy, Noah Levy, Trent Norton and Thomas Borscheid....
Can you see a king
Suspend all disbelief
Walking through the bad part of town
Can you turn the other cheek

Can you forget that you were chattel
Bones in our closet always rattle
Caught in a steel trap
Memory serves, it's never gonna pass

Old John Brown
Can we keep from goin' down
Old John Brown
Can we keep from goin' down

A zealous one, born too soon
Could he see his city on a hill ruins
Caught in a steel trap
Memory serves, it's never gonna pass

Old John Brown
Can we keep from goin' down
Old John Brown
Can we keep from goin' down

Can you pray
Can you take that walk
From Harper's Ferry to Little Rock

Old John Brown
Can we keep from goin' down
Old John Brown
Can we keep from goin' down
