Born Dead-J B Lenoir
J B Lenoir, vocal and guitar in dropped-D tuning

INTRO

Lord, why was I born in Mississippi, when it's so hard to get ahead?
Why was I born in Mississippi, when it's so hard to get ahead?
Every black child born in Mississippi, you know the poor child was born dead

When he came into the world, the doctor spank him, the black baby cried
When he came into the world, the doctor spank him, the black baby cried
Everybody thought he had life, and that's when the black baby died

He will never speak his name right, the poor baby would never speak his mind
Lord, he will never speak his name right, the poor baby, he will never speak his mind
The poor child will never know his mind, why in the world he's so far behind

Lord, why was I born in Mississippi, where it's so hard to get ahead?
Lord, why was I born in Mississippi, when it's so hard to get ahead?
Every black child born in Mississippi, you know the poor child was born dead
