Freedom Day



whisper
listen
whisper
listen
whispers say we're free
rumors flyin
must be lyin
can it really be?
can't conceive it
can't believe it
but that's what they say
slave no longer
slave no longer
this is Freedom Day ...




released in 1960 for the upcoming 1963 centenary of the Emancipation Proclamation

Fables of Faubus

oh! Lord! don't let 'em shoot us!
oh! Lord! don't let 'em stab us!
oh! Lord! don't let 'em tar and feather us!
oh! Lord! no more swastikas!
oh! Lord! no more Ku Klux Klan! ...

two! four! six! eight!
they brainwash and teach you hate
hello! ...

Wat Tyler's Rebellion

... from miles around unto Blackheath
the people made their way
and John the priest of Colchester
these words to them did say
"when Adam toiled to win his bread
and Mother Eve she spun
all folk were equal one and all
and masters there were none" ...

upon the fourteenth day of June
the King rode to Mile End
and he spoke softly to us all
"I am the poor man's friend
your wrongs shall all be righted
all bondsmen be made free"
oh! curse the day we trusted him!
for he lied wickedly ...

at Smithfield next we met the King
the nobles gathered round
the Lord Mayor struck a killing blow
Wat Tyler struck the ground
our masters bared their teeth and smiled
to see our hero slain
"you have been slaves since you were born
and slaves you'll now remain" ...

the men of England long ago
rose to demand their rights
though they've been dead six hundred years
remember them tonight
they raised the flag of liberty
they fought the battle well
they died but others will arise
to ring the freedom bell ...

General Ludd's Triumph (The Fucking Buckaroos)

no more chant your old rhymes about bold Robin Hood
his feats I do little admire
I will sing thee the triumph of General Ludd
now the hero of Nottinghamshire ...

... his wrath is entirely confined to wide frames
and to those that old prices abate
and those engines of mischief were sentenced to die
by unanimous vote of the Trade ...

... he may censure great Ludd's disrespect for the Law
who ne'er for a moment reflects
that foul imposition alone was the cause
which produced these unhappy effects
let the haughty the humble no longer oppress
then shall Ludd sheath his conquering Sword ...
