Taj Mahal

Henry Saint Clair Fredericks (born May 17, 1942), who uses the stage name Taj Mahal, is an American Grammy Award winning blues musician. He often incorporates elements of world music into his music. A self-taught singer-songwriter and film composer who plays the guitar, banjo and harmonica (among many other instruments), Mahal has done much to reshape the definition and scope of blues music over the course of his almost 50 year career by fusing it with nontraditional forms, including sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and the South Pacific. more »

How delicious is the winning of her kiss
Bind her love to eternal bliss
She's the greatest power in the universe
Freedom

Her touch will feed your real hope
In the darkest days, on the steepest slope
Let your good heart and kindness fill her temple
Freedom

Nobody's free until everybody's free
We walk the winding road, sail the raging seas
No prison cell, no censorship hell
Can claim our obedience and love

Here's our toast to freedom
To human rights and dignity
Love, respect and forgiveness
United in the dream for victory
Here's to the battlefields for justice
Of the banished, tortured and enslaved
To the selfless spirit and commitment
To our brothers and sisters in their graves

She hurts when sovereigns and parliaments meet
To shackle more chains about Liberty's feet
When the rulers cast the votes (when the rulers cast the votes)
They cannot spell (they cannot spell) I'm talking 'bout freedom

Her wide open eyes desire nothing but the truth
The soul of mankind and untainted youth
Yes, for this I will stand up and fight
Oh, freedom (freedom)

Nobody's free till everybody's free
We walk a long winding road, sail the raging seas
No prison cell, no censorship hell
Can claim our obedience and love

Here's our toast to freedom
To human rights and dignity
Love, respect and forgiveness
United in the dream for victory
Here's to the battlefields for justice
Of the banished, tortured and enslaved
To the selfless spirit and commitment
To our brothers and sisters in the grave

Nobody's free till everybody's free
Together we walk a hard road, sail the raging seas
No prison cell, no censorship hell
Can claim our obedience and love (oh no)

Here's our toast to freedom
To human rights and dignity
Love, respect and forgiveness
United in the dream for victory
