Detroit,Michigan broken down

Downtown Detroit Skyline


Detroit,Michigan broken down

Old car factories gone

Nice white neighbours all left town

Houses sold for a song

Gone too that high dividing wall

Keeping black  from white

Filmore Detroit

No more sales at the shopping mall

With the black lot out of sight

Now it’s down town no mans land

Good business gone to ground

Because the black man took a stand

And voiced his claim out loud

A great pulsating thorough fare

downtown Detroit

In economic boom

Badly in need of financial repair

And in need of it soon.

Why has Detroit been left to waste?

Another abandoned town

Where is the charm and pride of place?

Detroit,Michigan broken down.
