Initially recorded October 1993 and released as the 5th track on the album Choas And Disorder (July 9, 1996). Written by Prince.

 
Ow!

An Indian woman buried her grandpa n the Black Hills
When she was young he used 2 tell her that these hills belonged 2 her still
And even though injustice took them hills away
"1 day we'll get 'em back," he said
And the sun's gon' shine that day
When we say, "Right the wrong"

B4 she laid him down 2 rest
She heard his voice n the wilderness
Sayin', "I got 6 feet of it back!" Uh
"Now we can right the wrong"

Right the wrong, hear the song
B4 long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would U rather die knowin' that U did or keep livin' n shame?

Did U hear the 1 about the boy just 17?
3 years hard time 4 stealin' ice cream
1st offense and all his dreams r gone
How long b4 we right the wrong?

Right the wrong, hear the song
B4 long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would U rather die knowin' that U did or keep livin' n shame?
Right the wrong

1 2 3, uh
1 2, 1 2, come on!
Right the wrong, baby!
Yeehoo!
Ow!

Far b it 4 me 2 say
It seem like we could stop the flow of snow n the sky 2day
But I guess the weather man, he likes the rain
Ain't that insane?
Now sing

Right the wrong, hear the song
B4 long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would U rather die knowin' that U did or keep livin' n shame?

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon! (Right the wrong)
Ooh
Can U hear me, baby? (Right the wrong)
I'm 6 feet n the grave, I'm 6 feet n the grave! (Right...)
Right the wrong {repeat}

Ashes 2 ashes, dust 2 dust
This young man with a talented soul died when he wanted
The life that lives should not b pitied
Nor shall the guilty b 4given
Until they can find it n their hearts 2 right the wrong
