Though I haven't got a penny to my name I've got wealth beyond compare just the same In my mind the greatest treasure there could be Just to live the way I live because I'm free I'm not bound to anyone that takes my time or pleasures that will pray up on my mind And I walk the roads and do just as I please my life belongs to me cause I'm free I'm free from social ties that tend to bind me Or to live the life that wasn't meant for me Competing for the things that have no meaning I'm wealthy in my mind because I'm free The ribbons of the land that keep me a knowing There's always something new for me to see A whistle in the wind then I'll be going to live the way I live because I'm free Though I haven't got a penny
