  • I think of Andy in the cold wet clay
    Those three are on my mind
    With his comrades down beside him
    On that brutal day
    Those three are on my mind

    There lies young James in his final pain
    Those three are on my mind
    So I ask the killers, "Can you see those three again?
    Those three are on my mind"

    I see dark eyed Michael
    With his dark eyed bride
    Those three are on my mind
    And three proud mothers
    Weeping side by side
    Those three are on my mind

    But I'm grieving yet
    And for some the sky is bright
    I cannot give up hoping
    For a morning light
    So I ask the killers, "Do you sleep at night?
    Oh, those three are on my mind"

    I see tin roof shanties
    Where my brothers live
    Those three are on my mind
    And the little burnt out churches
    Where they sing we forgive
    Those three are on my mind

    I know of Tom paints water tree
    I know the price of liberty
    Now I ask the question that is deep inside of me
    Did they also burn the Courthouse
    When they killed those three
    Those three are on my mind

    Those three are on my mind
    Those three are on my mind
