Up ta Zion

February 25, 2016

We’yuh marchin marchin up to Zion
Kangs an qwanz crowned proud
Hih steppin somebodies ta look at 
Cocked bike like proud birds stru’in
Awl my culud ones what could fly wawk
Duh proceshin is a thang ta putcho eyes on
Makin owah way waylon up dea pu’in feets down
Widaht watchin no stumbles uh no stones
When you wawkin cross shoulders it keep you
A long way from da groun rat nea sky
We’yuh marchin marchin up dat beautifo, dat wundafuh 
Choice ta live till you die an be somebody’s showda
Iffen iss awl we kin do to live is jess live
Doin so is da greatess giff we’kuh gih
When livin alone is a thang on us awl
A rough side uh da mount’in decarated in saints
Patient uh wai’in an watchin da worl go thoo it
Patient da raised bright chilluns from dark womens
Grow thick skin that’kuh tell ova top uh dis livin pain
Won't neva stop marchin up dat beautifo dat beautifo
Till awlat help headed ta da hills is aht dis valley
