  • One
    One, two, three!
    Hey, hey!

    She got a shack
    Floating down the Pontchartrain
    With the water rolling in
    We gotta swim
    Before the levees start to crack

    Another day
    Another dollar down the drain
    You go to town
    No one's around
    'Cause if you drown
    There ain't no hope for coming back

    It ain't no big thing if you lose your faith
    They kinda like to keep you in your place
    You never know what might be coming your way

    Oh everybody
    Devil take your money
    Money's got no hold on me
    Oh oh everybody's making love
    'Cause love is free

    You go to church
    And pray to God for no more rain
    A Cadillac
    A paper sack
    Well hey there Jack
    You want some bourbon for the pain

    Hey tambourine
    Ain't no rhythm on the street

    With the voodoo
    What do you do
    When the radio just plays on anyway?

    Those crazy fingers in your jelly jar
    They'll jack your money
    While you sleep in you car
    They got the karma
    They ain't getting too far


    Everybody come together
    (Love is free)
    Everybody come together
    (Love is free)
    Everybody come together
    (Love is free)
    Everybody come together


    [Chorus: x2]

    Love is free
    Love is free. Writer/s: BILL BOTTRELL, SHERYL CROW
