Rage Against the Machine - The Ghost of Tom Joad

Now Tom said, "Ma, wherever you seen a cop beatin' a guy
Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
Wherever there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
Look for me Ma, I'll be there
Wherever somebody's strugglin' for a place to stand
For a decent job or a helpin' hand
Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free
Look in their eyes, Ma, you'll see me"
You'll see me

The song was written by Bruce Springsten. The Rage Against the Machine version is superior. For those that don't know. Tom Joad is the protagonist is the literary classic "The Grapes of Wrath."
