Lyrics

LET'S NOT FORGET!

(CHORUS)

LET'S NOT FORGET ALL THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE
THEY DIDN'T MAKE TODAY'S MAJORS THEY DID ENDURE
PLAYING BY THE RULES THEY BEAT JIM CROW AT HIS GAME
BECAUSE OF THEM, OTHERS MADE THE HALL OF FAME

BEFORE JACKIE ROBINSON BLAZED AROUND THE BASES
THE COLOR LINE WAS BROKEN BETWEEN THE RACES
BEFORE SATCHEL, JOSH, AND COOL PAPA BELL
BLACK PLAYERS LIVED IN A WHITE BASEBALL HELL

HONOR YOUNGER THE FIRST COLLEGE PLAYER AT OBERLIN
HONOR FOWLER FIRST PRO IN THE MINORS PITCHING FOR LYNN
HONOR WALKER OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION
THE FIRST BLACK MAJOR LEAGUER IN THE NATION

REPEAT CHORUS

THROUGH BEANINGS AND JEERS AND SPIKINGS THEY STAYED
ON A FIELD OF HATRED SOMEHOW BLACKS PLAYED
WITH WHITES ?TIL THE TURN OF THE CENTURY
IN THOSE TWILIGHT YEARS THEY TRIED TO BE FREE

THEN, PRO BASEBALL TURNED SHARPLY BLACK OR WHITE
BUT IN NON LEAGUE GAMES FREEDOM SHINED HER LIGHT
WHEN BLACKS PLAYED WHITES THEY GAVE THEIR ALL
BLACKS WERE PLAYING MORE THAN BASEBALL

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT TAGLINE TWICE

ROBINSON SLID HOME TO END THIS NATIONAL SHAME
BUNTED HOME BY BLACKS WHO LONG AGO PLAYED THE GAME

REPEAT LET?S NOT FORGET TWICE

LET?S NOT FORGET ALL THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE

FADE AND REPEAT: LET?S NOT FORGET (SEVERAL TIMES)
