Across The Lines - Tracy Chapman

words to study

Across the lines

Who would dare to go

Under the bridge

Over the tracks

That seperates whites from blacks

Choose sides

Or run for your life

Tonight the riots begin

On the back streets of America

They kill the dream of America

Little black girl gets assaulted

Ain't no reason why

Newspaper prints the story

And racist tempers fly

Next day it starts a riot

Knives and guns are drawn
