Day 241: Words, Words, Words – “We Shall Be Free” (1992)

This ain’t comin’ from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes
I see the way this world shall be

When we all walk hand in hand
When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there’s shelter over the poorest head
We shall be free

When the last thing we notice is the color of the skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
Then we shall be free

We shall be free, We shall be free
Stand straight, Walk proud
‘Cause we shall be free

When we’re free to love anyone we choose
When this world’s big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free

We shall be free, we shall be free
Have a little faith, Hold out
‘Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there’s only one race, and that’s mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free ,We shall be free
Stand straight, Walk proud
Have a little faith, Hold out
We shall be free

We shall be free, We shall be free
Stand straight, Stand straight
Have a little faith, Walk proud
‘Cause we shall be free

— Stephanie Davis and Garth Brooks
