about

This is my interpretation of the song written by Bobby Wright ( Abu Talib) in 1974. I heard it first time couple years ago when Melodies International reissued it on 7". I instantly fell in love with Bobby's voice, lyrics, emotion and the message that spreads: the message of love and peace. I worked on my version for two years on and off. I hope it calms and soothes everyone who will listen and I hope that more people will discover Bobby's music.

lyrics

"This world need not hurt no more
Sorry world, even though I love you so

There is no one to turn to
And no one to blame
For the blood of American has scandalized our name

No, world, don't you sit, sit and cry
No, world, don’t you even try

There is no one to turn to
And what will you do
When the blood of American is poured out over you?
When the blood of American is poured out over you?

Who can I turn to?
Who can I turn to?
Who can I turn to?
What will you do?

Evildoing the American has poured out over you
Evildoing of America has rubbed off on you
All the blood of American has scandalized our name
Evildoing of America has scandalized our name"
