Malcolm Was Right

Appalachian back porch
Library of Congress
We have nothing to offer
They just happen to be hearing it Okay!?

Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, where are you tonight

Well I wake up in the morning
I head up to the barn
Looking for a manger
Where the sheep are newly shorn

I grab a little lambie
By the haunches and I say
C'mon little lambie
Let me have my way

Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, where are you tonight

On the streets of Old Las Vegas
Bakein' in the sun
Spending all my money
On the whores and twenty one
Trying to make my skin dark
Trying to hide the tan
But the white ass the blue eyes
Connect me to the man

Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, Where are you tonight

I'm a remnant of the rat pack
A robber on the trail
Know everything about you
Yeah I learned it all in jail

You never showed us mercy
My ass is white as snow
Before I leave you brother
There's something you should know

Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, Malcom was right the Devil is white
I say, Where are you tonight
