This song is by Cuby + Blizzards and appears on the album Dancing Bear (1998).

Don't wanna be black in Mississippi
Though they've got the right to choose
Don't wanna be black in Mississippi baby
Though they've got the right to choose
Don't wanna be black in Mississippi
'Cause they still got that same old blues

Don't wanna be black in Mississippi
There's a secret way to keep them down
Don't wanna be black down in Mississippi
There's a secret way to keep them down
If it wasn't for the tractor
You'd still find them behind the plow

Don't wanna be black in Mississippi
'Cause they still burn their churches down
Don't wanna be black in Mississippi baby
They still burn their churches down
You still see the smoking shotguns
Firing another round

Don't wanna be white in Mississippi
Cause it was our responsibility
Don't wanna be white down in Mississippi
Talk about responsibility
That's why I don't wanna be down in Mississippi
That's why I don't wanna be black down in Mississippi
That's why I don't wanna be black down in Mississippi

Talk about Mississippi
Firing another round
Don't wanna be black or white
They still 've got that same old blues
Mississippi baby
Talk about Mississippi
The same old blues
That's what I'm talking about
There's a secret way to keep them down
