Freedom Friday.

Songs of Freedom workshop at Old Songs Folk Festival. Pat Humphries is in the center.

Bound For Freedom (by Pat Humphries)

In Montgomery and in Selma and the streets of Birmingham
The people sent a message to the leaders of the land
We have fought and we have suffered and we know the wrong from right
We are family. We are neighbors. We are black and we are white.

CHO:

Here I go bound for freedom. May my truth take the lead
Not the preacher, not the congress, not the millionaire, but me
I will organize for justice. I will raise my voice in song
And our children will be free to lead the world and carry on

From a cell in Pennsylvania, from an inmate on death row
A voice who had the courage to expose the evil show
From the courtroom to the boardroom in the televisionís glare
How the greedy live off poor and hungry people everywhere

CHO: repeat

BRIDGE:

Here I go, though Iím standing on my own
I remember those before me and I know Iím not alone
I will organize for justice. I will raise my voice in song
And our children will be free to lead the world and carry on

From the streets of New York City, Ďcross the ocean and beyond
People of all nations create a common bond
With our conscience as our weapon, we are witness to the fall
We are simple, we are brilliant, we are one, and we are all.

Repeat Chorus and Bridge
