67.
THE CONSTITUTION SONG

The constitution says that I am free
But there's one thing that puzzles me,
I've roamed this country from sea to sea
Would you show me on the map where I am free.

They didn't want me in Deerfield town;
In Arkansas they said my skin was too brown;
They didn't want me in Tennessee;
Now you show me on the map where I am free.

Bus stop after my freedom ride;
Americans were waiting with chains outside;
When I got off they started beating me;
Now you show lie on the map where I am free.

I've traveled here and I've traveled there;
I've traveled damn near everywhere;
But there's one thing that puzzles me;
Show me on the map where I am free.

I want my freedom in the U.S.A.
I want it now, I want it everyday;
I'm tired of suffering and misery;
Please show me on the map where I'd be free.

You took my rights, you took my freedom, too;
Now you have to show me what you're gonna do;
But I'll be damned because I can see;
You can't show me on the map where I'd be free.
 

CERTAINLY, LORD

Do you want your Freedom? Certainly, lord,
Do you want your Freedom? Certainly, lord,
Do you want your Freedom? Certainly, lord,
Certainly, certainly, certainly, lord.

Will you fight for freedom? Certainly...

Have you been to jail? Certainly,..

Have you done thirty days? Certainly...

Did you serve your time? Certainly...

Will you go back again? Certainly...

Will you tell it to the judge? Certainly...

Will you tell it to the world? Certainly...

Will we get our freedom? Certainly...

FREEDOM

Everybody wants, freedom
Everybody wants, freedom
Everybody wants, freedom
Freedom, freedom.

Got to have my, freedom...

Folks in (New York, Miss., etc.)
  want, freedom...

All the children want, freedom...

Sing it louder 'bout, freedom...
 

OLD FREEDOM SPIRIT
  (Tune:  Old Time Religion)

CHORUS:
Give me that Old Freedom Spirit
Give me that Old Freedom Spirit
Give me that Old Freedom Spirit
It's good enough for me.

It was good for Ronnie Moore
It was good for Ronnie Moore
It was good for Ronnie Moore
It's good enough for me.

It was good for (any name)...
 

I KNOW WE'LL MEET AGAIN

CHORUS:
I know, I know
Someday we'll meet again
I know, I know,
Someday we'll meet again
Then you and I,
We'll never say goodbye
When we meet again.

You come from Atlanta, Georgia
And I come from Tennessee;
We met down in this Mississippi
  jail
Because we want to be free.
