People came in their droves
"Martin Luther RIP" by Colin Lowley
You came in droves to listen to me, people of color to my words that were free,
others on this earth who hated me so, then paid a gunman to kill me slow.
"Equality and freedom" that was all that was said, on Capitol hill they wanted me dead,
yet my dream has come true! Mississippi...Alabama...even a President too.

A martyr I became after they had me slain, my words echoing in hearts of pain,
with our God beside me, who guided me through, yesterday alive, then to Heaven I flew.
Here the white Angels gather around, we joke, we laugh and there's never a frown,
with my black wings I fly in the air, above the clouds where only Angels dare.

The future I foretold which we now see unfold,
where one race live together, with children to behold,
"Never come another day, when a Negro has to run away"
As I watch from Heaven and in God I pray.
