Old Jim Crow
Where've you been baby
Down Mississippi
And back again
Old Jim Crow
Don't you know it's all over now

Old Jim Crow
What's wrong with you
It ain't your name
It's the things you do
Old Jim Crow
Don't you know it's all over now

Old Jim Crow
You've been around too long
Gotta work together
Till you're dead and gone
Old Jim Crow
Yes don't you know that it's all over now
It's all over now

Old Jim Crow
You know it's true
When you hurt my brother
You hurt me too
Old Jim Crow
Don't you know it's all over now yeah

Old Jim Crow
I thought I had you beat
Now I see you walking and talking
Up and down my street
Old Jim Crow
Don't you know it's all over now yeah

Old Jim Crow
You've been around too long
Gotta work together
Till you're dead and gone
Old Jim Crow
Don't you know it's all over all over

Oh Lord it's all over all over
It's all over it's all over
It's all over now yeah
