Death Or Freedom

I left my wife and my family
Still bound in chains
Swore I’d return to free them
A new life ordained
The night was fraught with danger
Around every turn
Still better than life back there
A new page is turned

We won’t be bought and sold
Like cows and sheep
The trail ahead is long
So dark and deep
Stars light the way ahead
From friendly place to place
Like Moses and the Jews
We’ll make a daring escape

The human spirit must be free
From here until eternity
God said Let my people go
Show them the way
To Death or Freedom

Baying hounds upon our trail
A price upon our heads
I won’t return to slavery
I’d sooner end up dead
No chains will bind my feet
No one will own my soul
I must lead these children
From the devil’s harsh control

The human spirit must be free
From now until eternity
God said Let my people go
Show them the way
To Death or Freedom

An unseen hand guides them
An iron will
The desire to be free is strong
It burns within all life

Follow drinking gourds and stars
In order to be free
Sweeter than the sweetest honey
Our stolen liberty
The price of which is vigilence
Until the day we die
For we are free and they won’t win
No matter how they try

The human spirit must be free
From now until eternity
God said Let my people go
Show them the way
To Death or Freedom
