Across the Lines Songtext
von Tracy Chapman

Across the Lines Songtext

Across the lines
Who would dare to go?
Under the bridge
Over the tracks
That separates whites from blacks
Choose sides
Or run for your lives
Tonight the riots begin
On back streets of America
They kill the dream of America
Little black girl gets assaulted
Ain't no reason why
Newspaper prints the story
And racist tempers fly
Next day it starts a riot
Knives and guns are drawn
Two black boys get killed
One white boy goes blind
Across the lines
Who would dare to go?


Under the bridge
Over the tracks
That separates whites from blacks
Choose sides
Or run for your lives
Tonight the riots begin
On back streets of America
They kill the dream of America
Little black girl gets assaulted
Don't no one know her name
Lots of people hurt and angry
She's the one to blame
Across the lines
Who would dare to go?
Under the bridge
Over the tracks
That separates whites from blacks
Choose sides
Or run for your lives
Tonight the riots begin
On back streets of America
They kill the dream of America
