Lyrics: Leslie Fish.
Tune: Leslie Fish.


Did you think it was easy to change all of tomorrow?
Did you think you’d never meet time, defeat, and sorrow?
Did you think all the walls would crumble, and you’d never lose a fight?
Get back up on your feet and do it right.

Freedom road is a long haul; freedom road is a long haul.
But it’s worth the ride even if you never get there at all.

Did you think the first leader come preaching down the pike
Could give you one big answer, as if we were all alike?
Well, there’s no set salvation. You should have known all along
That Jesus, Marx, and your guru could be wrong.

Freedom road is a long haul; freedom road is a long haul.
But it’s worth the ride even if you never get there at all.

This is the Lonesome Valley that you’ve got to walk yourself.
Go out and find the answers: you can’t take ’em off a shelf!
And you’ve got to make tomorrow from just what you’ve got today.
So, get up off your ass and find a way.

Freedom road is a long haul; freedom road is a long haul.
But it’s worth the ride even if you never get there at all.

Time comes down like thunder, and you can ride or fall,
Let the millstones grind you ‘til nothing’s left at all.
But we’ve got just two choices: one’s to get home free
And second best is nothing you want to see.

Freedom road is a long haul; freedom road is a long haul.
But it’s worth the ride even if you never get there at all.
