With My Maker I Am One

I am the preacher shouting out the news
I am the juke joint stomper playing the blues
I am the holy roller giving Jesus my cares
I am the candyman pushing my wares

I am the cowboy branding my steers
I am the cherokee brave on the trail of tears
I am the master, whip in my hand
I am the slave from a distant land

After all is said and done
With my maker I am one

I am the okie on a dusty road
I am the banker with the tailor-made clothes
I am the hobo in a cold boxcar
I am the railroad baron with the long cigar

I am the ghettho brother 'bout to lose his lease
I am the landlord cutting off the heat
I am the prisoner playing cards
I am the warden looking out on the yard

After all is said and done
With my maker I am one

I am the doctor saving the sick
I am the junkie craving a fix
I am the homeless child on the street so mean
I am the moviestar on the silverscreen

I am the champion on the finish line
I am the beggar holding up the sign
I am the rookie trying to make to the hall of fame
I am the gangster fixing the game

After all is said and done
With my maker I am one

After all is said and done
With my maker I am one
