A bullet from the back of a bush took Medgar Evers' blood.
A finger fired the trigger to his name.
A handle hid out in the dark
A hand set the spark
Two eyes took the aim
Behind a man's brain
But he can't be blamed
He's only a pawn in their game.

A South politician preaches to the poor white man,
"You got more than the blacks, don't complain.
You're better than them, you been born with white skin," they explain.
And the Negro's name
Is used it is plain
For the politician's gain
As he rises to fame
And the poor white remains
On the caboose of the train
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

The deputy sheriffs, the soldiers, the governors get paid,
And the marshals and cops get the same,
But the poor white man's used in the hands of them all like a tool.
He's taught in his school
From the start by the rule
That the laws are with him
To protect his white skin
To keep up his hate
So he never thinks straight
'Bout the shape that he's in
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

From the poverty shacks, he looks from the cracks to the tracks,
And the hoof beats pound in his brain.
And he's taught how to walk in a pack
Shoot in the back
With his fist in a clinch
To hang and to lynch
To hide 'neath the hood
To kill with no pain
Like a dog on a chain
He ain't got no name
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

Today, Medgar Evers was buried from the bullet he caught.
They lowered him down as a king.
But when the shadowy sun sets on the one
That fired the gun
He'll see by his grave
On the stone that remains
Carved next to his name
His epitaph plain:
Only a pawn in their game.

"Only a Pawn in Their Game", Bob Dylan

Don't try and mess with the master race"

When you see that yellow scum a comin up the road
Will you turn the other cheek just like a gutless toad?
Or will you stand your sacred ground and form in with the bats
Tell him he's not welcome here, and give him several smacks
When he starts a snivelling and pleading for his life
Tell him that you're only sorry you missed his kids and wife
Tell him how your father fought in wars not long ago
To save this country from the likes of fucking GI Ho

Smack him if he's yellow
Smack him if he's black
Smack him till he fucks off
And doesn't come back
Smack him in the bollocks
Smack him in the head
Smack him till he really hurts
Smack him till he's dead
