Up on the Mountain

Up on the Mountain

Up on the mountain children call
Can't make a dollar, save my soul
Children hungry, nothing to eat
Get no money, walking the street

Ask my Captain, can he use a man
Use a man, not a skeleton
How can I make? I don' know
Tired of starvin', won't starve no more

From a book entitled Negro Songs of Protest
