  • Lyrics
  • I'm a white man living in a white man's world
    Under our roof is a baby girl
    I thought this world could be her's one day
    But her momma knew better

    I'm a white man living in a white man's town
    Want to take a shot of cocaine a burn it down
    Momma wants to change that Nashville sound
    But they're never gonna let her

    There's no such thing as someone else's war
    Your creature comforts aren't the only things worth fighting for
    You're still breathing it's not too late
    We're all carrying one big burden, sharing one fate

    I'm a white man living on a white man's street
    I've got the bones of the red man under my feet
    The highway runs through the burial grounds
    Past the oceans of cotton

    I'm a white man looking in a black man's eyes
    Wishing I'd never been one of the guys
    We pretended not to hear another white man's joke
    Oh, times haven't forgotten

    There's no such thing as someone else's war
    Your creature comforts aren't the only things worth fighting for
    You're still breathing it's not too late
    We're all carrying one big burden, sharing one fate

    I'm a white man living in a white man's nation
    I think the man upstairs must have took a vacation
    I still have faith, but I don't know why
    Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes
    Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes
