You Were There lyrics

Album: Sammy Davis Jr 60th Annyversary Gala

You were there before we came
You took the hurt, you took the shame
They built the walls to block your way
You beat them down
You won the day
It wasn't right, it wasn't fair
You taught them all
You made them care
Yes, you were there, and thanks to you
There's now a door we all walk through
And we are here, for all to see...
To be the best that we can be
Yes, I am here...
Because you were there
