"Too Many Martyrs" by Phil Ochs

In the state of Mississippi many years ago
Em               G           D

A boy of 14 years got a taste of southern law
Am                       Em
[ Tab from: ]
He saw his friend a hanging and his color was his crime
Em                  G                 D

And the blood upon his jacket left a brand upon his mind
Am                                   Em

CHORUS: Too many martyrs and too many dead
        Am          D              G

Too many lies too many empty words were said
Am          D             G              (Em optional)

Too many times for too many angry men
Am          D              G

Oh let it never be again
Am          D         Em
