Delta Rae pens protest song in response to Charleston events

Comment Off 9 Views

Warner Bros. Records:

Wanted to share this new song from Delta Rae with you. The band was, quite understandably, horrified by the events in Charleston, SC on Wednesday night, especially as it hit quite close to home for them, based in Durham, NC. So they wrote and recorded this protest song, “All Good People,” as a means to express their “outrage, sadness, and insistence that things must change.”


Delta Rae writes:

“Our hearts and prayers are with the families of those killed in Charleston, SC last night. These tragedies have got to STOP…It’s time to push our leaders to act. All good people must raise their voices. We need to protect every member of our community from hate and racism. And we need to stop so much of this violence by limiting access to guns…This is not the country we want to be. These actions do not represent our values.”

Please listen to and share the song, an addition to the ongoing conversation.


“All Good People”:



All Good People


There are dogs in the yard

Howling at the moon

There are sinners like me

Our judgement’s coming soon

And I stand at the bottom

Of this dark and lonely well

Saying please give me answers

So I might escape hell


I watched from my window

As they gunned down unarmed men

Tried to say it’s not my problem

Couldn’t happen to my friends

But the truth is they’re my brothers and they’re my countrymen

And if we lose our better angels

We won’t get them back again


Come on and raise your voice

Above the raging sea

We can’t hold our breath forever

When our brothers cannot breathe


All good people, won’t you come around

And defend your brother

All good people, won’t you come around

Hold up each other
