Words & Music: Rattlesnake Annie

Free the Children

Free, free the children
Free, free the children
Set’um free, oh set’um free
Free the children

I have walked along these Southern roads
Down the footpaths of the old
Worked so hard in your cotton fields
And I’ve searched and prayed for ways to heal
Children born to children and passed from hand to hand
All alone without a home, lost in the promise land

I have walked along these Southern streets
Blood and tears flow at my feet
Shootin’ up and shootin’ down
Guns and drugs are all around
Children killin’ children, in a time so cold and mean
Getting’ by just seems so hard, when you live outside the dream

Mississippi River roll on by
Come on little baby it’s time to fly
Reach out and touch the stars
Free yourself from these earthly bars
Children teaching children, with a future bright and strong
Build with love and harmony, the whole world is your home
