    Too Many Martyrs (the Ballad of Medgar Evers) Phil Ochs

    In the state of Mississippi many years ago
    A boy of 14 years got a taste of southern law
    He saw his friend a hanging and his color was his crime
    And the blood upon his jacket left a brand upon his mind

    Too many martyrs and too many dead
    Too many lies too many empty words were said
    Too many times for too many angry men
    Oh let it never be again

    His name was Medgar Evers and he walked his road alone
    Like Emmett Till and thousands more whose names we’ll never know
    They tried to burn his home and they beat him to the ground
    But deep inside they both knew what it took to bring him down


    The killer waited by his home hidden by the night
    As Evers stepped out from his car into the rifle sight
    he slowly squeezed the trigger, the bullet left his side
    It struck the heart of every man when Evers fell and died.


    And they laid him in his grave while the bugle sounded clear
    laid him in his grave when the victory was near
    While we waited for the future for freedom through the land
    The country gained a killer and the country lost a man
