Freedom Now
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


throwed him in jail
And they kept him there
Hoping soon he'd die
That his body and spirit would waste away
And soon after that his mind

But every day is born a fool
One who thinks that he can rule
One who says tomorrow's mine
One who wakes one day to find

The prison doors open the shackles broken
And chaos in the street
Everybody sing we're free free free free
Everybody sing we're free free free free
Everybody sing we're free free free free

Oh they throwed him in jail
And they kept him there
Hoping his memory'd die
That the people forget how he once led
And fought for justice in their lives

But every day is born a man
Who hates what he can't understand
Who thinks the answer is to kill
Who thinks his actions are god's will

And he thinks he's free free free free
Yes he thinks he's free free free free
Oh, he thinks he's free free free free

Soon must come the day
Oh, when the righteous have their way
Unjustly tried are free, oh
And people live in peace I say
Give the man release, oh
Go on and set your conscience free
Right the wrongs you made
Even a fool can have his day

Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free

Free our bodies free our minds
Free our hearts
Freedom for everyone
And freedom now
Oh, freedom now
Freedom now
Freedom now

Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free
Let us all be
Let us all be free
Let us all be
Let us all be free
