Testo della canzone Lincoln Freed Me Today The Slave di Joan Baez
Album: Blessed Are
Been a slave most all my life
soÂ´s my kids and soÂ´s my wife
IÂ´ve been working on the ColonelÂ´s farm
AinÂ´t been mistreated, ainÂ´t done no harm
IÂ´ll be a slave to my grave
No need of me being free.
Recollect when I was just fourteen
Freedom use to be my biggest dream
IÂ´m older now, lot wiser too
If I was free what would I do
The Colones right good to me
HeÂ´s taken care of my family.
The Colonel rode the buggy in from town
Hitched the horse and called us all around
Said he couldnÂ´t keep us here no more
I saw a tear as he walked toward the door
Oh Dear God, what did he say?
Lincoln freed me today.
