Rise Up (Easy Rider)

  • Rise up easy rider
    will you make the parish line
    the Louisiana farmer
    wants to blow away your mind

    Free and easy rider
    drivin' circles 'round the sun
    can you learn to live with freedom
    and to fear the lawman's gun

    easy rider, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
    keep on ridin' on on
    keep on ridin' on
    keep on ridin' on
    keep on ridin' on

    Turn and flee outsider
    the wings of hatred spread
    it takes a god to make man live
    and a bullet makes him dead

    ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride

    Rise up easy rider, rider
    God shed his grace on thee
    ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
    and crown thy good with brotherhood
    from sea to shining sea
    ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride

    Rise up easy rider
    will you make the parish line
    the Louisiana farmer
    wants to blow away your mind
    ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
    ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
