Subject: Lyr Add: BROWN BABY (Oscar Brown Jr)
From: GUEST,Bob Lusk

Hi - Does anyone have a copy of the music (all I need is a melody line) to "Brown Baby" by Oscar Brown Jr.? I know it was sung by Miriam makeba way back when. I remember the melody being printed in Broadside Magazine, but can't find it in my copies. It is not the song written by Edward B Marks.

The lyrics I have are -
Brown Baby
Brown Baby Brown Baby
As you grow up I want you to drink from the plenty cup
I want you to stand up tall and proud
And I want you to speak up clear and loud
Brown Baby Brown Baby Brown Baby

As years go by I want you to go with your head up high
I want you to live by the justice code
And I want you to walk down freedom's road
You little Brown Baby

So lie away lie away spleeping lie away singing
Lie away sleeping lie away safe in my arms
Till your daddy and you mama protect you
nd keep you safe from harm
Brown Baby

It makes me glad you gonna have things that I never had
When out of men's heart all hate is hurled
Sweetie you gonna live in a better world
Brown Baby Brown Baby Brown Baby
