Song Lyric
All of the leaders, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Bobby Kennedy served the U.S. as outstanding leaders who fought for civil rights and were the best leaders of their time
This song was written in 1968, the year both JFK and Martin Luther King Jr. both were killed. It was written to address the assassinations of four men, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., and Bobby Kennedy
The song addresses both the assassinations of these leaders and the weight of their deaths. They all fought for civil rights and saved a lot of people from death, discrimination, hatred, and injustice. The verse "Didn't you love the things they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me (Artists Lets Sing It 1) Tells a lot about how the singer felt about the deaths and the loss of some incredible leaders
How They Connect
This song is a tribute to those involved in the battle for civil rights (Song Facts 1)
The song helped me to understand the depth of what each of these leaders did for us. The song talks about how they were still needed and people were mourning because they were assassinated but very few people thought they deserved it. (Christina Lynn 1)
