He was a holy man
In a land of sin

They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king

He led a peace full army
With a hated skin
They killed the king
Oh lord they killed the king

His only weapon was believing in a well known song
They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king

While his army was singing we shall overcome
They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king

You know he fought
For love and freedom
He fought for all men kind
He fought that black and white
Could live with one and other
And always have a piece off own mind

They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king
They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed

Listen,...

He won a monkey's price
For a man his size
They killed the king
Oh lord they killed the king

Just like a black bird sitting
With a broken wing
They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king

They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king
(While he was fighting for love)
They killed the king
Oh lord
They killed the king
My my my
The killed the king
Oh lord.
