Wist je dat? De muzikale begeleiding van dit nummer is Canon In D van de Duitse componist Johann Pachelbel. Hij schreef dit werk rond 1680. Het kenmerkende akkoordenschema van deze compositie is in veel popnummers terug te horen, maar in Oh Lord, Why Lord vormt de compositie de basis voor het hele nummer. Een ander nummer waarin Canon In D rechtstreeks is gebruikt, is C U When U Get There van Coolio.

I've searched the open sky
To find the reason why
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

The colour of my skin
Is said to be an awful sin
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

No, I cannot understand
No, I never, never understand
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

I've got to live and live
And give much more than I could give
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

In this world, you made so sacred
I only find problems and hatred
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

I just can't seem to find
Why my every move is so unseen
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

Why this long and bitter strife
Must go on for equal rights
Why can't there be some harmony (Oh, Lord)
Instead of contant agony (Why, Lord)

I just can't help but cry
The tears won't stay inside
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

I feel the weight of their everlasting hate
But I still live with hope and faith
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

I'll wear the chains
But nothing ever seems to change
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord

I ask no special kindness
I ask not for a crown
I only ask, for some justice, Lord (Oh, Lord)
To restore what's right from wrong (Why, Lord)

So now you've learned my sadness
In a story and a song
Oh, Lord
Why, Lord
