  Oceanway Studios, Los Angeles CA - november 1984  

Freedom for the stallion
Freedom for the mare and the colt
Freedom for the baby child
Who's not grown old enough to vote.
Lord have mercy, what you gonna do
About the people that are prayin' to you?
Men makin' laws to destroy other men
Made money God, it's a doggone sin.
Oh Lord, you got to help us find a way.

Big ships sailin'
Slaves all chained and bound
Headin' for another land
That some cat says he's up and found.
Lord have mercy, what you gonna do
About the people that are prayin' to you?
They got men makin' laws to destroy other men
Made money God, it's a doggone sin.
Oh Lord.

Freedom for the stallion
Freedom for the mare and the colt
Freedom for the baby child
That not grown old enough to vote.
Lord have mercy, what you gonna do
About the people that are prayin' to you?
Well, when i look into my mind
It's the truth that i find.
Oh Lord, you gotta help us find a way.
