One White boy all alone in 1962
caught between the wrong and right
whatever will he do
Father died the other day, a man he barely knew
Mother drank her life away, she drank his spirit, too
KKK was on the rise, the dragon marching through
Tallahassee was the place, the memory seems new
One black boy played ball with him, confided in him, too
One white boy, all alone, in 1962
One white boy without a girl, the sky is changing hue
