lyrics

Freedom Train

When I go out walking
Down to the water’s edge
I leave all the talking
I go dreaming instead
Dream about the words
That cut to the heart
And keep my head together
While the world breaks apart

I’m gonna walk this crooked highway
Across these waves of grain
I’m gonna take my place
On the freedom train

I remember a big country
A land under the sun
Where a young president
Called for work to be done
Bear any burden
Oppose any foe
Out into a restless world
Together we might go

I’m gonna walk this crooked highway
Across these waves of grain
I’m gonna take my place
On the freedom train

I see many people trying to hold on
Throats a choking on a sad, sad song
Weeping for promises never kept
Reaching for dreams stolen while they slept

Its time to care about your brother
It’s time to care about one another
It’s time to care, it’s just time to care
It’s time to care

New York to California
Sea to shining sea
Come on babe
Come go with me
Maybe living in any little town
We’ll find a real live Jesus
Laying something down
Hey wake up all you hippies
All you rednecks too
Get up offa that thing
Come on see what you can do
We’re gonna find out
At least we gonna try
If there’s anything left here
That money cannot buy

We gonna walk this crooked highway
Across these waves of grain
We’re gonna walk and walk
Through the wind and rain
We gonna talk, we gonna holler
We gonna make it plain . . .
We gonna take our place
On the freedom train
