17. Dalit Hymn

Share The Well
by Caedmon's Call



 

Sing from the village, sing from the town
(sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Sing everyone
Who has been cast down (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Emancipate, emancipate, prime minister, emancipate
Emancipate, emancipate, prime minister, emancipate

Sweeping, weaving, tilling the earth
(sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Show me the man to deny our worth (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Free the Dalit, free the Dalit, prime minister, free the Dalit
Free the Dalit, free the Dalit, prime minister, free the Dalit

Sub kooch ho sak-ee dey, sub kooch ho sak-ee dey sub kooch ho sak-ee dey
Skin of the buffalo declared unclean
(sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Through revolution, we'll be redeemed (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Heed ambedkar, heed ambedkar, prime minister, heed ambedkar
Heed ambedkar, heed ambedkar, prime minister, heed ambedkar

God made every man forward and free (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Rich man, poor man, every man free (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Politically, socially, everybody free (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Rich man, poor man, everybody free (sub kooch ho sak-ee dey)
Caste is a lie, caste is a lie, prime minister, caste is a lie
Caste is a lie, caste is a lie, prime minister, caste is a lie

Emancipate, emancipate, prime minister, emancipate
Free the Dalit, free the Dalit, prime minister, free the dalit
Heed ambedkar, heed ambedkar, prime minister, heed ambedkar
Cate is a lie, caste is a lie, prime minister, caste is a lie

Sub kooch ho sak-ee dey

words and music by Joshua Moore and Randall Goodgame

Behind the Song:
"I wrote the chorus in English to fit the music of the Punjabi lyric, which tells of the Dalit's plight but resonates in the chorus with "anything is possible with God." Josh and I stayed up late into the night sweating, eating cold rice and curried chicken, and getting eaten by mosquitoes while working out the verses...the next day we recorded the group of Dalits (and one sympathetic non-Dalit musician) singing the chants to the choruses... It was awesome to record and it is inspiring to hear." - Andrew Osenga (Caedmon's Call)
