Lyrics

Rosa was way too tired, to stand in the back of the bus.
She was arrested for sitting near a white man, there was nothing left to discuss.
Her friends and neighbors agreed it was time to take a stand.
They had a big meeting one evening and came up with a plan.

Chorus:
Money talks, poor folks walk.
When we walk together, we get our point across.

Fifty-thousand black folk in Montgomery, not a soul on the bus.
The days turned into weeks, and the weeks stretched into months.
They had the world’s largest car pool everybody had a seat.
Thousands just kept walking “trading tired souls for tired feet.”
Repeat chorus:

The rich and powerful spread their lies to divide their enemy.
They harassed and beat, arrested and jailed to bring them to their knees.
They bombed their homes and families, then they would not investigate.
But poor folks just kept walking and love triumphed over hate.

Rich folks buy a politician when they want to get their way.
Poor folks can’t keep wishing just hoping for a better day.
Money talks, poor folks walk.
When we walk together, we get our point across.
