Where is the Jim Crow section
On this merry—go—round,
Mister, cause I want to ride?
Down South where I come from
White and colored
Can’t sit side by side.
Down South on the train
There’s a Jim Crow car.
On the bus we’re put in the back—
But there ain’t no back
To a merry—go—round!
Where’s the horse
For a kid that’s black?
