Lyrics

They Tried to Bury Us
by Andy Douglas

They tried to bury us
They didn’t know that we were seeds
They tried to bury us
They didn’t know that we were seeds
They tried to bury us
They didn’t know that we were seeds
Now we are rising up together
To be as mighty as a tree

They tried to jail us
They didn’t know we had the key
They tried to jail us
They didn’t know we had the key
They tried to jail us
They didn’t know we had the key
Now we are rising up together
We are determined to be free

They tried to silence us
They didn’t know that we could sing
They tried to silence us
They didn’t know that we could sing
They tried to silence us
They didn’t know that we could sing
Now we are rising up together
You know our song is taking wing
