The folks in South Carolina
They want to keep their slaves
They made a declaration
For to keep it that away
Now I hear they went to war
They done it on their own
And it seems they want to drag
All the rest of us along
Well I ain't got no slaves
And I ain't wanting any
Jesus came to set us free
Jesus came to set us free
Jesus came to set us free
And I don't want no slaves

Jesus came to set us free
Jesus came to set us free
Jesus came to set us free
And I don't want no slaves

Song facts

"Robert and I agreed at the outset that this record would focus on the beat. He came up with this and I brought some lyrics stemming from my disgust with the distorted history Confederates espouse about the Civil War not being because of slavery. I had some verses about putting on the blue coat, like a lot of western NC guys did since they didn't own slaves. The South Carolina Declaration of Independence which got the Southern Rebellion rolling specifically references the to right to hold slaves. OK. Here I am pissed off." - David Childers
