65.
WE SHALL OVERCOME

We shall overcome,
We shall overcome,
We shall overcome, someday.
Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe,
We shall overcome, someday.

The truth will make us free,
The truth will make us free,
The truth will make us free, someday.
Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe,
The truth will make us free, someday.

We'll have homes, not slums...

We are not afraid... (today)...

Black and white together...

We'll walk hand in hand...

We will build anew...

The Lord will see us through...
 

WOKE UP THIS MORNING

Woke up this morning with my mind
Set on freedom
Woke up this morning with my mind
Set on freedom
Woke up this morning with my mind
Set on freedom
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah.

CHORUS:
Walk, walk, oh well-a talk, talk
Oh well-a walk, walk,
With your mind on freedom.
Talk, talk, oh well-a walk, walk
Oh well-a talk, talk,
With your mind on freedom.
Oh.........Hallelujah.

Everybody got their minds,
Set on freedom...

Folks in (New York, Georgia, etc.)
  got their minds,
Set on freedom...

Ain't no harm to have your mind,
Set on freedom....

OH FREEDOM

Oh, freedom, Oh, freedom
Oh, freedom over me.
And before I'll be a slave
I'll be buried in my grave,
And go home to my lord and be free.

No more Jim Crow, No more Jim Crow
No more Jim Crow over me.
And before I'll be a slave
I'll be buried in my grave
And go home to my lord and be free.

No more slumlords....

No segregation....

No more mourning...

No more lynchings....
 

HOLD ON

Paul and Silas bound in jail,
Got no money for to go their bail;
Keep year eyes on the prize,
Hold on.

CHORUS:
Hold on, hold on,
Keep your eyes on the prize,
Hold on. 

Paul and Silas began to shout,
Jail doors opened and they walked out.
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

The only thing that we did wrong,
Let segregation stay too long.
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

Work all day and work all night,
Trying to gain our civil rights.
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

The only thing that we did right,
Come and the wilderness, begin to fight
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

The only chain that a man can stand,
Is the chain of a hand in hand.
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

Got my hand on the Freedom plow,
Ain't got long on my journey new.
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.
