Judge hanging from a blackened sky
Well he shouldn't have messed with the devil in me
Certain things that I dislike
Won't even get better if you choose to apologize
Some guys won't get it, some guys will regret it
There is no promise that I didn't keep
And a heart can be broken, no, no, no promise
Just about a couple of years have passed
There is no more hunting after me I guess
On the run across this whole wide land
There was no damn corner I was save before they kicked my ass
They tried to get, they will never let me
There is no promise that I didn't keep
But a ban can be broken, no, no, no promise
Man says life can be imprisonment
And it makes no difference if you're in
Or in the outside world
Once they give you life
And another time they take it
Just told you 'bout the evil I
Let me tell you the story of an innocent man
There's no way to make them understand
Cause the white man never fails, he's far too ignorant
They can upset me, but they'll never get me
There is no promise that I didn't keep
And a man can be broken, no, no, no promise
Well I admit I killed a copper
And more than that I hanged a judge
But there is something that I disagree with you
There is no such thing called justice
For a black man in this land
As far as I'm concerned you're convincing

But Gary killed no one,
Killed no one
