  • Freedom, keep walkin'
    Keep on your toesand don't stop talkin' 'bout
    Freedom, get goin'
    Lots to be learned and lots to be knowin' 'bout
    People, gotta reach 'em
    Sit 'em right down and then you gotta teach 'em 'bout
    Freedom, gotta win it
    Gotta put yourself smack dab in it

    Hey tomorrow
    Now don't you go away
    Cause freedom
    Just might come your way

    Freedom, keep tryin'
    People stay alive and people keep dyin' for
    Freedom, so don't lose it
    Ya gotta understand ya just can't abuse it
    Freedom, get movin'
    Never gonna stop till everybody's groovin' on
    Love for, one another
    Callin' some friend and callin' some brother

    Hey tomorrow
    You're not so far away
    Mother freedom
    We'll know you well someday Writer/s: DAVID GATES

  • Diane from Providence, RiThis is my favorite song from the Baby I'm-A Want You album. The music is great, but it was always the lyrics that pulled me in. They're honest and earnest and beautiful.
