lyrics

"Dr. King Shines On Good For Everyone”

(A)
Dr. King Dr. King

Dr. King Dr. King

(B)
Dr. King would never
Let a family sleep outside
Dr. King would never
Dodge and duck and hide
Dr. King would never
Take a dollar to be unkind
Dr. King would never,
Never not speak his mind

(C)
(pick-up) Dr. King from the Mountain-top your voice sounds
Dr. King you're the Drum-Major forever strong
Dr. King you never left the righteous Road
Dr, King you fought where you were called.

(A)
Dr. King Dr. King Dr. King Dr. King

(C)
Dr. King you said all deserve a home
Dr. King you said it's not about skin-tone
Dr. King you said all Wars are for Banks
Dr. King you would lift America and the world
Dr. King from the mountain-top your voice sounds
Dr. King your Justice leads us on and on
Dr. King your soulful, smiling, angry Light
Still shines on good for everyone!

For everyone
For everyone
For everyone


Dr. King
We're marching--marching--…
There's right and wrong
And we march with you
There's work for all
And we strike for you
There's freedom through justice
And we fight for you

Love creates, Hate negates
All good courage is God's grace
The time is always right
To do what's right
And all of Light and Love
Are gifts from God

We're marching and striking and fighting for you

Till we win the Dream that you spoke high
Till we win the Life that you spoke high
Till we win those Rights for everyone
Till we win that Life for everyone

Dr. King!
All that's good comes from God
And we can serve for you
We're marching and striking and fighting for you
Your shining, soulful, angry Light
Still shines on good for everyone

Dr. King!
All of God
And it's thanks to you
Dr. King!
All of good
And it's thanks to you
Dr. King!
We all can serve
And it's thanks to you


Thank you--Thank you--Thank you
