Only A Man (Tribute to John Lewis)
Lyrics
You were only a man
Lived a life that believed in us all
The lessons you gave us,
Were the road that could save us
From a world that was broken and lost.

CHORUS:
On a bridge you walked straight into the fire
From Selma to Montgomery
All the courage you taught us , the justice you brought us
Truly what matter to me

You were only a man
Gave voice to the outcast, the needy
Stood up to the masters who thought they could cheat us
Brought down the ones that were greedy.

CHORUS:

On a bridge you walked straight into the fire
From Selma to Montgomery
The love that you brought us, non-violence you taught us
Truly what matter to me.

BRIDGE:
The world that we live in today
Is tearin' us apart
You said, "never give up, "don't ever give in"
We've got to light up the dark
We need to light up the dark
Music.......
You were only a man
A warrior of peace for us all
The lessons you gave us, are the road that can save us
From a world that's broken and lost

On a bridge you walked straight into the fire
From Selma to Montgomery
The justice you brought us, "good trouble" you taught us
Truly what matter to me
The love that you brought us, "good trouble" you taught us
Truly what matter to me
