​With My Maker I Am One

This song is by Habib Koité and Eric Bibb and appears on the album Brothers in Bamako (2012) by ​Habib Koité and ​Eric Bibb.

I am the preacher - shoutin' out the news
I am the juke joint stomper - playin' the blues
I am the Holy Roller - givin' Jesus my cares
I am the candy man - pushin' my wares

I am the cowboy - brandin' my steers
I am the Cherokee brave - on the Trail of Tears
I am the master - whip in my hand
I am the slave - from a distant land

After all is said and done - with my maker I am one
After all is said and done - with my maker I am one

I am the doctor - savin' the sick
I am the junkie - cravin' a fix
I am the homeless child - on the streets so mean
I am the movie star - on the silver screen

I am the champion - at the finish line
I am the beggar - holdin' up the sign
I am the rookie - tryin' to make the Hall of Fame
I am the gangster - fixin' the game

After all is said and done - with my maker I am one
After all is said and done - with my maker I am one

I am the Okie - on a dusty road
I am the banker - with the tailor-made clothes
I am the hobo - in a cold boxcar
I am the railroad baron - with the long cigar

I am the ghetto brother - 'bout to lose his lease
I am the landlord - cuttin' of the heat
I am the prisoner - playin' cards
I am the warden - lookin' out on the yard

After all is said and done - with my maker I am one
After all is said and done - with my maker I am one

After all is said and done - with my maker I am one
After all is said and done - with my maker I am one

After all is said and done - with my maker I am one
After all is said and done - with my maker I am one
