Lyrics
SUMMER '64/ Oh FREEDOM!
Greg Trafidlo and Neal Phillips
© 2004

Were you sittin' on the sidelines?
Were you really in the fight?
Helpin' people raise their voices
All together, black and white

Were you preachin' civil rights?
Teachin' door to door?
In Mississippi, in that summer '64

Did we learn from Mississippi
When hatred burns today?
Can we keep that dream of Martin's
From ever fadin' 'way?

It's been thirty years and countin'
But that march ain't over yet
Oh Freedom! Let 'em know we won't forget

"OH FREEDOM"
(TRAD.)

Oh Freedom. Oh Freedom
Oh Freedom over me
And before I'd be a slave
I'd be buried in my grave
And go home to my lord and be free

Summer '64 / Oh, Freedom
