Tell them we'll remember,
The sacrifices,
The deaths,
The freedom won,
A new world,
New problems,
Old memories,
A new government,
A new place.

Tell them we'll remember,
Segregation,
Unfairness,
The looks,
Taken from home,
Sold for a price,
Hard labor,
Freedom for men,
Wanted.

Tell them we'll remember,
Leaving home,
Buying food,
A wagon and oxen to pull,
The long journey,
Sickness and accidents,
Death.

Tell them we'll remember,
The dust bowl,
No homes,
No food,
No work.

Tell them we'll remember,
A little change,
Giving a little
Changed our country
And made it
What it is
Today.

Tell them we'll remember.
