    Lyrics

    Where are you now?
    Broken up or still around?
    The CIA says you're a guilty man
    Will we see the likes of you again?

    Can anyone make a difference anymore?
    Can anyone write a protest song?
    Pinky lefty revolutionary
    Burnt at the stake for

    A voice so pure - a vision so clear
    I've got to learn to live like you
    Learn to sing like you

    Went to Cuba to meet Castro
    Never got past sleepy Moscow
    A giant man with a heavenly voice
    MK Ultra turned you paranoid

    No passport 'til 1958
    McCarthy poisoned through with hate
    Liberty lost still buried today
    Beneath the lie of the USA

    Say what you want
    Say what you want

    A voice so pure - a vision so clear
    I've got to learn to live like you
    Learn to sing like you

    Now let the Freedom Train come zooming down the track
    Gleaming in the sunlight for white and black
    Not stopping at no stations marked colored nor white
    Just stopping in the fields in the broad daylight

    Stopping in the country in the wide open air
    Where there never was a Jim Crow sign nowhere
    And no lilly-white committees, politicians of note
    Nor poll tax layer through which colored can't vote

    And there won't be no kinda color lines
    The Freedom Train will be yours
    And mine

    A voice so pure - a vision so clear
    I've got to learn to live like you
    Learn to sing like you

    Sing it loud, sing it proud
    I will be here, I will be found
    Sing it loud, sing it proud
    I will be here, I will be found
