Man In Black

Dans le style de

Johnny Cash


well you wonder why
i always
dress in black
why you never
see bright colors
on my back

and why does
my appearance
seem to have
a somber tone
well there's a reason
for the things
that i have on

i wear the black
for the poor
and the beaten down
livin' in the hopeless
hungry side of town

i wear it
for the prisoner
who has long
paid for his crime
but is there
because he's a victim
of the time

i wear the black
for those
who've never read
or listened
to the words
that jesus said

about the road
to happiness
through love
and charity
why you'd think
he's talkin' straight
to you and me

well we're
doin' mighty fine
i do suppose
in our
cars and
fancy clothes

but just so
we're reminded
of the ones
who are held back
up front there
ought to be
a man in black

i wear it
for the sick
and lonely old
for the
reckless ones
whose bad trip
left them cold

i wear the
black in mournin'
for the lives
that could have been
each week
we lose a hundred
fine young men

and i wear it
for the thousands
who have died
believin' that the lord
was on their side

i wear it
for another
hundred thousand
who have died
believin' that we all
were on their side

well there's
things that never
will be right i know
and things
need changin'
everywhere you go

but till we start
to make a move
to make
a few things right
you'll never see me
wear a suit of white

oh i'd love to wear
a rainbow every day
and tell the world
that everything's ok

but i'll try
to carry off
a little darkness
on my back
till things
are brighter
i'm the man in black
