I Shall Not Be Moved
"I Shall Not Be Moved" is an African American spiritual. The song describes how the singer "shall not be moved" because of their faith in God. Secularly, as "We Shall Not Be Moved" it gained popularity as a Civil Rights Movement, protest, and union song. In Great Britain in the 1980's the song was attributed to popular British wrestler Big Daddy as his walk-on music which would be greeted by cheers from the fans
