Gary Tyler was on a school bus in 1975 when it caught-up in a KKK rally. Tyler was found guilty by an all white jury of murder.

TYLER
Appeal to the governor of Louisiana
You may get an answer the process is slow
Federal government too much to help him
It's been nearly five years
And they won't let him go

(Chorus)
Tyler is guilty the white judge has said so
What right do we have to say it's not so
Tyler is guilty the white judge has said so
What right do we have to say it's not so

Testify under pressure, a racist jury
Government lawyers its all for show
With rows of white faces
False accusations
He's framed up for murder
They won't let him go

(Chorus repeat)

Police gun was planted, no matching bullets
No prints on the handle, no proof to show
But Tyler is guilty the white judge has said so
They show him no mercy
They won't let him go
