The Tune:
Lyrics:Well, you wonder why I always dress in black 
Why you never see bright colors on my back 
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone 
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on. 
 
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down 
Living in the hopeless, hungry side of town 
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime 
But is there because he's a victim of the times. 
 
I wear the black for those who never read 
Or listened to the words that Jesus said 
About the road to happiness through love and charity 
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me. 
 
Well, we're doing mighty fine, I do suppose 
In our streak of lightning cars and fancy clothes 
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back 
Up front there oughta be a Man In Black. 
 
I wear it for the sick and lonely old 
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold 
I wear the black in mourning for the lives that could have been 
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men. 
 
And, I wear it for the thousands who have died 
Believing that the Lord was on their side 
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died 
Believing that we all were on their side. 
 
Well, there's things that never will be right, I know 
And things need changing everywhere you go 
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right 
You'll never see me wear a suit of white. 
 
Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day 
And tell the world that everything's okay 
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back 
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.
