She cried,           She cried-------

Woman hold her head and cry, cause her son had been
Shot down in the street and die, just because of the system

Woman hold her head and cry, comforting her I was
Passing by, she complained, then she cried......she cried

(repeat chorus as above)

Thanks, Bob.
