Freedom Square

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Promenade (2002).

Please Captain, let me go down town
It's Sunday and my friends will be around
I've been to church like I'm supposed to do
And I prayed that my girl is gonna be there too
'Cause Jesus said to me,
One day you'll be free,
But for now every Sunday, there's dancing in the square,
We'll sing our fathers' songs and there'll be freedom in the air
We'll plant a seed and maybe it'll grow
So please Captain, let me go

And that's right, that's right, going down to Freedom Square
That's right, that's right, that's right
And that's right, that's right, gonna meet my people there
That's right, that's right, that's right

Well I slaved all week and the day has come around
When I can slip these chains and lay my burden down
On Freedom Square, Old Hannah shine on bright
On the working man and make him feel all right
Today we're on our own,
We're taking it back home
And up from the plantation, the line is coming through
Like they're dancing in their shackles, the way they used to do
And every step they take is gonna be
One further down the road for you and me

And that's right, that's right, going down to Freedom Square
That's right, that's right, that's right
And that's right, that's right, gonna meet my people there
That's right, that's right, that's right
