Lyrics

Rolled into Selma off Pettus Bridge Road
Not far from the lost highway Hank sang about years ago
Struck up a conversation with a white-haired colored man in overalls

Eased my hand out of my pocket
I was watching real close
I can't say that I blame him, this day and time you never know
Yeah this town's got a history, of certain folks not getting along

Started swapping stories 'bout growin' up round the swamp
And the beauty of a 'Bama moonlight cuttin' through trees covered in moss
Then we caught ourselves not thinking about the color our skin
Right there in black in white, we put hate in its place again
Hate in its place again

We both got scars that just won't heal
Try to move on something happens and steals
Hope for change, strength to love and forgive
That night in Selma two simple men talked
Left some things buried deep in the swamp
Both found out we're not enemies
For a moment in time lived another man's dream

We can't undo what's already been done
Only one thing can break the chains, that's love
Only one thing can bring the change, that's love

Yeah, we both got scars that just won't heal
Try to move on something happens and steals
Hope for change, strength to love and forgive
Yeah, that night in Selma two simple men talked
Left some things buried deep in the swamp
Both found out we're not enemies
For a moment in time lived another man's dream

For a moment in time lived another man's dream
