BLACK, BROWN AND WHITE Album : Big Bill Blues Big Bill Broonzy - 1951 This little song that I'm singin' about People you know it's true If you're black and gotta work for a living This is what they will say to you They says if you was white, should be all right If you was brown, stick around But as you's black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back I was in a place one night They was all having fun They was all byin' beer and wine But they would not sell me none They said if you was white, should be all right If you was brown, stick around But if you black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back Me and a man was workin' side by side This is what it meant They was paying him a dollar an hour And they was paying me fifty cent They said if you was white, 't should be all right If you was brown, could stick around But as you black, m-mm boy, git back git back git back I went to an employment office Got a number 'n' I got in line They called everybody's number But they never did call mine They said if you was white, should be all right If you was brown, could stick around But as you black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back I hope when sweet victory With my plough and hoe Now I want you to tell me brother What you gonna do about the old Jim Crow? Now if you was white, should be all right If you was brown, could stick around But if you black, whoa brother, git back git back git back
