Sleeve Notes

LAWS WERE MADE FOR PEOPLE
AND THE LAW CAN NEVER SCORN
THE RIGHT OF A MAN TO BE FREE

Free the people: Let them have their say
Free the people: Let them see the light of day

A dismal dawn was breaking
As they took a man away
Not knowing what was his crime
Just what he was guilty of
Not one of them could say
But they'll think of something in time.
He says "Goodbye and remember—
We shall overcome

Free the people: Let them have their say
Free the people: Let them see the light of day

Comforting her children crying softly in the night
She tries very hard to explain
"You know your daddy never did-a thing that wasn't right
So soon he's bound to be home again.
He is a good man and he shall overcome" Free the people: Let them have their say—
Free, the people: Let them see the light of day

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN THE RIGHT TO BE BORN
IF HE SUFFERS THE LOSS OF HIS LIBERTY
LAWS WERE MADE FOR PEOPLE
AND THE LAW CAN NEVER SCORN
THE RIGHT OF A MAN TO BE FREE
WE ARE THE PEOPLE
AND WE SHALL OVERCOME

We are the people
And we shall overcome

Free the people let them have their say
Free the people let them see the light of day
Free the people let them have their say
Free the people let them see the light of day
