Bebe and Marvin Winans: “Good Trouble”

At John Lewis’s funeral service:

 

Born in Troy, Alabama; to Eddie and Willie Mae

Share-croppers workin’; in the heat of the day

He knew there was much more, so he asked the Lord to show

All he achieved in his life, we already know

CHORUS:

Here was there when you call in a hurry

Tell you the truth don’t you worry

He was willing to fight in the struggle

He was willing to get into trouble

He was willing to get into trouble

He took on the wrong of this world, like civil and voting and rights

No matter the problems he he faced, kept his eyes on the prize

And then he learned to walk by faith, and believe God until the end

And knew we would overcome, and love is gonna’ win

CHORUS

And as you put on your robe to go home

We will continue to fight and be strong

As you put on your robe to go home

We will continue to fight; continue to fight

CHORUS (repeat)
