I'm looking for the verses to the song "I Love Everybody," which I think may come from the civil rights movement. I heard it from Ysaye Barnwell of Sweet Honey in the Rock.   

First verse is just:

I love everybody
I love everybody
I love everybody in my heart

repeated twice. But there were other verses. Can you help me find them?

"I LOVE EVERYBODY I LOVE EVERYBODY

I love everybody I love everybody,
I love everybody in my heart (2x)
I can never doubt him I can never doubt him,
I can never doubt him in my heart(2x)"

"To us this may be pious poetry but to these people it is reality.

. . .these people were able to sing: 'I love everybody in my heart. . . .I love George Wallace in my heart. . . . I love Jim Clark in my heart. . . .I love the State troopers in my heart. . . .' And their leaders again and again repeat their guiding philosophy of non~violence."

Google the title "I Love Everybody in My Heart". I think it was a hymn that was used during the civil rights era in the US. One of those things where ya added a verse on the spot. Singout Magazine also has a version: "I Love Everybody in My Heart .......... v.15#3 ... p.12"

These verses are from Everybody Says Freedom: A History of the Civil Rights Movement in Songs and Pictures, by Pete Seeger and Rob Reiser (W.W. Norton & Co., 1989)

    You can't make me doubt it...
    The Klan can't make me doubt it...
    I feel the fire burning...
    I know freedom is a-comin'....


following verses attributed to Matt Jones of New York (from same publication:

    Hate and greed can't stop it...
    Racism can't stop it....
    Howard Beach (?) can't stop it...
    The CIA can't stop it...


Seeger says it should always end with:
    I love everybody...

Only one additional verse in Sing for Freedom:
    I love Hoss Manucy...
(apparently, "Hoss" was somebody known to have beaten some civil rights workers.)

Halstead "Hoss" Manucy was a segregationist and leader of the Ancient City Hunting Club in St. Augustine, Florida. Manucy was of Minorcan background and a Roman Catholic, so was not eligible to join the Ku Klux Klan, but he certainly sympathized with the Klan, and during Dr. Martin Luther King's campaign to desegregate St. Augustine in 1963-1964, Manucy 's hunting club functioned as a paramilitary vigilante group against integration, working in tandem with the sheriff and the chief of police. Manucy's partisans would often beat demonstrators and at least one hunting club member was shot to death in a car driving through the Black neighborhood of Lincolnville. The dead youth was holding a shotgun in the car. Manucy in an interview in 1976 admitted that the civil rights movement had "helped Blacks" but thought the government should have done something to help whites too. In the 1980's, he became more conciliatory toward his former adversaries in St. Augustine's Black community, although he never apologized for his actions nor those of his club. He died in 1995.

There's a bit more there but it adds little other than to say Seeger heard two people singing the stanza we already have.
