Beal street

Walking down Beal street

And who do see

It was the king yeah right I front of me

And he told me to shake my hips and move my lips

And he told me whatever you do you never quit

So went to new deli

and who did I see

It was ghandi walking down the street

And he told me no fighting no fighting

And stand up for what you believe in


Walking down Beal street

Started thinking

What is life and

Why I am sinking

Walking down Beal street

Looking for answers

What can change me

What am I seeing


Walking down the mississippi

And who do i see

The king’s alive

He’s shaking those hips

Walking down the mississippi

And who do i see

The king’s a leading

The many, the free

Walking down the mississippi

And who do i see

J’s a walking

On the water with me

Walking down the mississippi

And who do i see

Jay’s a walking

Rapping to me


Walking down bealstreat

Who do I see

The king yeah

Right in front of me

So I asked him, he told me

Something I needed

Loosen up and shake those hips

And move your legs and your lips

(No matter what never quit)

So I went walking in new deli

Who do I see in front of me

It’s Ghandi and he told me

(No fighting no fighting)

(Stand up for what you believe in)

(Peace is the only king)

Wisdom I needed

You gotta live free

Detaching and you will see

You’ll be free

So I went to South Africa

In prison Mandela

He told me to be at peace

To to be free, be sweet to everybody

(He told me to see no color, we’re all brothers)

(To forgive one another)

So I back to Tennessee

On Beal street who’d I see

Mr King yeah right I front of me

And he told me baby

To be free walk with me

Be at peace you will see

So we walked all the way to DC

And I made friends with everybody

Black and white united

Coming together to be free

Poor and wealthy

Believing in unity

B-chord phrase

Walking on the Mississippi who do I see

Walking on water it’s JC

And he told me to let go to be free

He told me a new life is waiting for me
