Let Freedom Ring
by Charlie Daniels



In the heat of the battle to the head of the army there stepped a man

Said I've been to the top of the mountain and I've looked over the promised land

He had no fear of death or evil his skin was black and his name was King

He said I may not get there with you but put your faith in God and let freedom ring

There was a tyrant strong and mighty and he built his self a wall

He said this wall's gonna stand forever and no power on Earth is gonna make it fall

But then the winds of change they started blowing like a free bird on the wing

And then the wall fell down with a sound like thunder

Let the free bird fly and let freedom ring

(Let freedom ring)

Throughout the northland out across the frozen tundra

To the land of the midnight sun and the Eskimo

(Let freedom ring)

From Albuquerque across the sea to Greece and Turkey

And from Halifax down south to Mexico

(Let freedom ring)

From Carolina round the world to Indochina

from Seattle to Mobile to Abilene

Let freedom ring well let it ring now let it ring let it ring let it ring

Innocent blood was shed for freedom in a faraway place called Tiennemen Square

Cause the heavy hand of cruel oppression is so much more than a man can bear

But you can't chain a man forever and your guns they don't mean a thing

Cause they'll rise again in the cause of justice

Give the power to the people and let freedom ring

(Let freedom ring)

From Minnesota across the plains to North Dakota

And from Kennebunkport out to Kalamazoo

(Let freedom ring)

From Rome to Reno and from Tokyo to Moscow

And from Barcelona Spain to Katmandu

(Let freedom ring)

From Madagascar and from Berlin to Alaska

And from Liverpool to Perth to Aberdeen

Yeah let it ring I said let it ring let it ring let it ring let it ring

Let's give thanks to God our Father the author of our liberty

Gave us this land to protect and cherish

It's the home of the brave and the land of the free

Oh America we love you sweet land of hope of Thee we sing

And with our lifeblood we will protect you

Let the eagle fly and let freedom ring

Let freedom ring let freedom ring let freedom ring

Let it ring let it ring Let it ring let it ring Let freedom ring
