Ride the Wind

Ride the Wind

 

Wish I could hop that old freight train and leave these blues behind

The ways to get away from here been weighin’ on my mind

I know no train can take me where I really want to go

But come the dawn I will be gone… I’ll ride the wind, you know…

I’ll just get up and go!

 

Chorus:

Ride the wind! Stand the storm! There ain’t no place to hide!

Ride the wind! Stand the storm! We cannot be denied!

 

Farewell, my friends, I’ll miss you all… I’ll miss you one and all

One of these years I shall return… most likely in the fall

So keep the faith that we have known in Love and Liberty

And when we once embrace again we shall be strong and free…

In Truth we shall be free!

 

Chorus Instrumental Chorus

 

Cold winds blow across the land… Dark clouds gather gloom

Children wake up crying… Parents rush into the room

It’s just another nightmare of impending days of doom

But we’re gonna tear “your terror” down and make the deserts bloom!

Yeah, that’s what we assume!

 

Chorus

 

It’s just like us to rise again when we have sunk so low

Those who have no sense of shame will never learn to grow

We cannot live locked in the past… The winter can’t stop spring!

So let us join our hearts in hope… Let’s hear those voices ring!

Yeah, let’s hear those voices sing!

Simple Song of Freedom

Simple Song of Freedom

Licensed for use by Vic Sadot on “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” released on 9/11/11. This is a lyrical update Bobby Darin’s 1969 anthem to struggle!

 

Come and sing a simple song of Freedom!

Sing it like you’ve never sung before!

Let it fill the air! Tell the people everywhere!

We the People! We don’t want your war!

(chorus #1)

 

Hey there Mister Rich Man! Can you hear me?

I don’t want your mansion or your shame!

I just want to house and feed my family!

Don’t want your wars of terror in my name!

(chorus 2)

 

How many have you armed and enlisted?

We’ve seen the way you demonize with lies!

You’re the masters of the media we’ve resisted!

Full of lies to divide and destabilize!

(chorus 3)

 

Instrumental #1

 

Come on people! Don’t buy propaganda!

Don’t buy the corporate media’s dirty lies!

It’s a bloody game by those who have no shame!

To feed their greed and power, Freedom dies!

(chorus 4)

 

Only by making Justice can Peace be won!

And sharing all the “Commonwealth” is wise!

It’s everybody’s earth! And it’s everybody’s sun!

To wake to in the morning when we rise!

(chorus 5)

Instrumental #2

 

No doubt ruling class groups want war profits…

Like Presidents, Prime Ministers, and Kings…

And Corporate CEO’s want us to fight their foes…

While puppets on their strings do violent things!

 

(Last chorus #6: Do it slow with stops. And change to

“We the People! We won’t fight your wars!)
