We Shall Overcome
Lyrics derived from Charles Tindley's gospel song "I'll Overcome Some Day" (1900), and opening and closing melody
from the 19th-century spiritual "No More Auction Block for Me" (a song that dates to before the Civil War). According
to Professor Donnell King of Pellissippi State Technical Community College (in Knoxville, Tenn.), "We Shall Overcome"
was adapted from these gospel songs by "Guy Carawan, Candy Carawan, and a couple of other people associated
with the Highlander Research and Education Center, currently located near Knoxville, Tennessee. I have in my possession
copies of the lyrics that include a brief history of the song, and a notation that royalties from the song go to support the Highlander Center."
We shall overcome some day
We'll walk hand
We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand some day
We shall all be
We shall all be free
We shall all be free some day
We are not
We are not afraid
We are not afraid some day
We are not
We are not alone
We are not alone some day
The whole wide
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
