Abraham, Martin, and John

Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
You know, I just looked around and he’s gone.

 

Anybody here seen my old friend John? 
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked around and he’s gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked ’round and he’s gone.

Didn’t you love the things that they stood for?
Didn’t they try to find some good for you and me?
And we’ll be free
Some day soon, and it’s a-gonna be one day …

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
I thought I saw him walkin’ up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin and John.

“Abraham, Martin, and John” by Dick Holler  and famously sung by Dion in 1968.

Michael co-pastors The Neighborhood Church in Littleton, Colorado with Eugene Scott. In honor of Martin Luther King Day, he thought he’d share the lyrics to this song with you. Thanks to John Fischer for the idea. You can read his insightful blog here.
