What Is The Color Of The Soul

This song is by Terri Hendrix and appears on the album The Spiritual Kind (2007).

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?

My grandma said I was a silly goose
For asking questions when there ain't no use
I cannot tell you the reason why
But I'll keep askin' till I die

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?

A blue man sat in a green man's pew
The green man said, "You, rascal, you"
They beat each other on the head
They fought each other till the smart man said

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?

I know some people who are chicken-fried
Something crawled up in their hearts and died
All that's left in them are sticks and stones
And their words can chew you to the bone

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?

A red man married a snow white maid
And all their kids are a copper shade
You know it puzzles me both day and night
Will their children's souls be red or white?

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?

Tell me, tell me if you can
What is the color of the soul of a man?
Black or yellow, white or tan
What is the color of the soul of a man?
