Let My People Go
From: Hootie & the Blowfish EP

When I walk down the street
Everybody that I meet
Seems to be calling my name
But what can you do
When they just stare at you
Tell me aren't we the same

Let my people go
Let my people go

Hey aren't you like me
Tell me why can't they see
A man's a man in this land
I lived my life
I never think twice
Always doin' what I can

I pledge allegiance to the flag
That's what they taught me in school
But you walk down the street
Saying where's their allegiance to me
Then they treat you like a fool
Things must change
They can't remain the same
At least that's what people say
Things must change
Well you can change your name
It won't help you anyway
