(Click here to hear Susan Appe and Rebecca Anders sing
"Caucasian Race" )

(sing to the tune of Amazing Grace)

Caucasian Race, how pale the skin
That hands over money
I once was poor but now the Bank
Just gave a debt to me

The Bank has taught me how to give
Away the crops I grew.
How precious did those loans appear
And how our credit grew.

CHORUS:
Caucasian Race, how pale the skin
That hands over money.
I once was poor but now the Bank
Just gave a debt to me.

As I was toiling in the fields
a vision came to me
I saw a hand come take my plow
And build a factory

CHORUS:
Caucasian Race, how pale the skin
That hands over money.
I once was poor but now the Bank
Just gave a debt to me.
