lyrics

The Red river flowed past a scarlet fire beneath a magenta sky.
In Colfax LA, This courthouse sits on sacred ground
Baptized by the crimson blood of freedom seekers
Consecrated by the bones of 150 children of god

My disbelieving eyes located the placard, it said
Their death represented the end of Carpetbagger misrule
And the Ancestors fill pity for small men
Who can’t give up their colossal fantasies of Supremacy

The horns blare and the birds sing Morning g lory
The tears of the shadows marks the affront
The grass don’t grow and fire don’t burn no more
But dreams still breathe, the ancestors will be honored

On Easter Sunday 1873, 3 died fighting for White Supremacy
150 died fighting to live
