Gil Scott-Heron - 95 South (All The Places We've Been) Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • In my lifetime I've been in towns
  • where there was no freedom or future around.
  • I've been in places where you could not eat
  • or take a drink of water where ever you pleased.
  • And now that I meet you in the middle of a mountain
  • Well, I'm reaching out from within.
  • And all I can think of are chapters and scenes of
  • all of the places we've been.
  • I'm not such an old man so don't get me wrong.
  • I'm the latest survivor of the constantly strong.
  • I've been to Mississippi and down city streets,
  • I've seen days of plenty and nights with nothing to eat.
  • But I'm not too happy 'bout the middle of a mountain so
  • soon I'll be climbing again.
  • 'Cause all I can think of are chapters and scenes of
  • all of the places we've been.
  • I was raised up in a small town in the country down south
  • so I've been close enough to know what oppression's about.
  • Placed on this mountain with a rare chance to see
  • dreams once envisioned by folks much braver than me.
  • And since their lives got me to the middle of a mountain
  • Well, I can't stop and give up on them.
  • 'Cause their lights that shine on inspire me to climb on
  • from all of the places we've been.
  • From all of the places we've been,
  • From all of the places we've been alot of places, yeah
  • From all of the places we've been,
  • Been down, been down, been down, alot of roads and places
  • All of the places...
