Blues song about Charlotte and its longstanding tradition of discrimination and racism



Stoneman wrote, produced and performed everything on this recording.



I watched the racists marching down the street and was inspired to write this song


I'm staying away from Charlotte
It's just not the place for me
I'm staying away from Charlotte
It's just not the place for me
Cause there's some hatred going on around there
and they love bogtry

I'm staying away from Charlotte
It's not a place I want to be
Oh Lord, I'm staying away staying away from Charlotte
It's not a place I want to be
Cause there's some hatred going on around there
And there's some murder going on around there
And discrimination going on around there
And its just not a place I want to be anywhere near oh

I'm staying away from Charlotte
They don;t like folks who look like me
I'm staying away staying away from Charlotte
Cause they don't like folks who look like me
And there some hatred going on around there
From way back in slavery oh yeah

*Stonewall "Stoneman" Towery wrote produced and performed everything on this recording

I'm staying away from Charlotte
Cause they like marching down the streets
I'm staying away staying away from Charlotte
Because they like marching down the streets
Cause there's some haters going on around there
With Tiki torches and hate mongering

I'm staying away from Charlotte
It's just not my cup of tea
O'm staying away staying away from charlotte
Cause its just not my cup of tea
Cause there some hatred going on around there
And it makes life misery
