Ballad of Martin Luther King Jr.

Standing in front of thousands

Speaking his dreams to all

Teaching, loving, and believing

Mr. King, your dreams will never fall

His speeches were spread all throughout

Inspiring those treated unfairly

To stand up too like the man behind the podium

Mr. King you’re forgotten rarely

It was rights he spoke for

It was rights for the free

But no matter how much he argued

Not everyone agreed

Standing on the balcony

The whole crowd applauded

As the gun was fired

And the assailant nodded

For his sacrifice and bravery

He is remembered to this day

Praise your rights to freedom

For Mr. King lead the way
