Coretta’s Song (Version 2)

i’m a soldier in the army
it’s an infantry of gods
and were marching towards tomorrow
and we mean to break the odds

we are marching for the children
for the mothers, for the land
we will build a new beginning
with every soul who dares to stand

have not the pious promise makers
taken back every word they’ve said
bloodied by fire burning upon the cross
have not the pale moons turned to red

but we must ever believe in truth
truth is still a regal thing
and there ain’t no rest, no there ain’t no rest
no there ain’t no rest for a king

instrumental

if we are all the great sojourners
then the journey is our grace
we must never surrender
wearing the victory of our faith

and if my body dies before me
let the bells of freedom ring
i will be born again in freedom
cause there ain’t no rest for a king

cause there ain’t no rest
no there ain’t no rest
no there ain’t no rest for a king
