“Thoughts Are Free” Sheet Music (pdf).
“Thoughts Are Free” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: Traditional.


Our thoughts are all free,
Who, then, shall confine them?
Like shadows, they flee,
Who shall see or divine them?
No man can way lay them;
No hunter can slay them.
’Tis clear as can be
That thought is still free.

I think as I will
The thoughts of my choosing.
Well hidden and still
Are the themes of my musing.
My fancies, my yearnings,
None mars by his spurnings.
’Tis clear as can be
That thought is still free.

What though I lie in pain
In the somberest prison,
No fetter, no chain
Holds a spirit arisen.
Dungeon walls, it will batter;
All shackles, ’twill shatter.
Far and wide, it will flee
For thought is still free!
