A modern day protest song

Lyrics

Say His Name
© 2020 Ray Weaver

He called for his momma,
“Momma, I’m through
As the knee crushed his neck
“Momma I’m through”
We all saw what happened,
We all share the shame
His name was George Floyd
Say his name, say his name

Say his name, say his name
make it viral, make it burn
Say his name, say his name
Will we ever learn?
If we all stay silent, then we’re all to blame
Scream it out on the streets
Say his name, say his name

He went for a run,
and two white men ran him down,
Shot him dead for the crime,
of running through their white town
We all saw what happened.
we all share the shame
His name was Ahmaud Arbery
Say his name, say his name

Say his name, say his name
make it viral, make it burn
Say his name, say his name
Will we ever learn?
If we all stay silent, then we’re all to blame
Scream it out on the streets
Say his name, say his name

Move along Johnny
ain’t nothing to see here,
and put that phone down
do I make myself clear?
Our original sin,
Our national shame
Too lives stolen
too many names
too many names

Say his name, say his name
make it viral, make it burn
Say his name, say his name
Will we ever learn?
If we all stay silent, then we’re all to blame
Scream it out on the streets
Say his name, say his name
