The Other Ninety Nine (Bill Cagle and the Sprit of '68)
(Blog: 45 Blog)
From the lyrics: "Where are they, the other ninety nine? The decent folk, the righteous. Do they rally together in brotherhood, only to mourn? Can they not rally together for good, to overcome those things that make them mourn? Is it not time for such a rally of the other ninety nine? Where are they, the other ninety nine percent. The silent people, the sleeping giant….Look! They're coming. By the millions they're coming. From New York's sidewalks, from Chicago's factories, from the Mississippi Delta, from California's golden shores, from every state in the Union. Shoulder to shoulder, marching together to overcome wrong and set this nation right!"
