Liberty!


Saw a bird with a tear in his eye… Walking to New Orleans, my oh my
Hey, Now, Bird, wouldn't you rather die? than walk this world, when you're born to fly?

If I was the sun, I'd look for shade… If I was a bed, I would stay unmade
If I was a river, I'd run uphill… If you call me, you know I will
If you call me, you know I will

Ooo, freedom… Ooo, liberty! Ooo, leave me alone… to find my own way home…
Find my own way home

Say what I mean and I don't give a damn… I do believe and I am who I am
Hey now Mama come and take my hand… Whole lotta shakin' all over this land

If I was an eagle I'd dress like a duck… crawl like a lizard and honk like a truck
If I get a notion I'll climb this tree… or chop it down and you can't stop me
Chop it down and you can't stop me

Ooo, freedom… Ooo, liberty! Ooo, leave me alone… to find my own way home…
Find my own way home

Went to the well but the water was dry… Dipped my bucket in the clear blue sky
Looked in the bottom and what did I see? The whole damned world looking back at me!

If I was a bottle I'd spill for love… Sake of mercy, I'd kill for love
If I was a liar I'd lie for love… Sake of my baby, I'd die for love
Sake of my baby I'd die for love

Ooo, freedom… Ooo, liberty! Ooo, leave me alone… to find my own way home…
Find my own way home

I'm gonna find my own way home.
