Lyrics

Me & Janis
1992
Written By Jason Moon

We got enough food to feed the whole world,
Still on the streets there’s a stomachs a churn.
In your own homeland and in my own hometown.
Lord, it ain’t easy to feel proud.

The people are crying the streets are on fire.
We got a million unemployed all full of desire.
Children are crying, no shoes on their feet.
When a cardboard box is a mansion in the streets.

(Chorus)
But what can I do, but sing a song.
Saying brother and brother, let’s get along.
Cause I am to you what you are to me can’t you see.
It’s me and Janis and Bobby McGee,
She’s having Southern and I’m having tea.
She said with a smile, “Boy can’t you see?”
If you ain’t doing nothing, lord you ain’t free.

And you sit and watch it all on your TV,
An image so frightening that you can’t believe.
In this land of America home of the free,
That so many people could be in need.

And you say to yourself, “But what can I do?”
Well friend just remember that it all starts with you.
United we stand, divided we’ll fall.
In apathy we die, in ignorance we crawl. We crawl…

(Chorus)

(Chorus) (brother and sisters…)

It’s me and Janis and Bobby McGee,
She’s having Southern and I’m having tea.
She said with a smile, “Boy can’t you see?”
If you ain’t doing nothing, lord you ain’t free.
