Freedom

This song is by Luther Allison and appears on the album Soul Fixin' Man (1994).

We talk about South Africa and we say it's a shame
Apartheid is wrong and we all share the blame
But people let me tell you, everywhere you go it's the same
People are being mistreated, when will it change?
Let's talk about the future and learn from the past
We must love one another if this world is going to last
We fought for self-respect, we fought for equal rights
We've known a long, long time that discrimination ain't right

Talking about freedom, freedom, freedom
Talking about freedom, freedom, freedom

A ghetto is no place for children to grow
But you can find a ghetto everywhere you go
I heard Dr. King say: "I have a dream"
All he wanted was to let the freedom ring
Why do we have to fight in wars to save our land
If we get back alive, there's still no dignity
Do I have to die before I can be free?
I want freedom in my life, that's the way it's got to be

Talking about freedom, freedom, freedom
Talking about freedom, freedom, freedom

I'm tired of discrimination, this has to stop
We must learn to live together before the bombs drop
So if you love your children too this is what you should do
Teach them to love one another, live by the Golden Rule
Freedom of choice, freedom of speech, my freedom is up to you
We were promised this freedom, but we have a long way to go
The love of freedom, can't you tell, is the same for you and me
All I need is someone to help me ring the Freedom Bell

Talking about freedom, freedom, freedom
Talking about freedom, freedom, freedom
