[1975]
Album "Fighting"
Listen right, I'll the hard luck story
about a man named Jack McDuff.
He believed in the God and glory,
but he just wasn't tough enough.

I believe in the freedom song.
Long live liberty!
I believe in the freedom song
and I'll choose my own destiny.

Well they took him and they beat him
underneath that old hanging tree
saying, "Jack, you must die
What will your last words be?"

Jack, he hung his head back.
"Long live liberty!
I believe in the freedom song.
Doesn't matter what you do to me."

With a rope around his neck they left him hanging
high from that old hanging tree.
On her knees his wife was screaming,
"Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy"

I believe in the freedom song.
Long live the liberty!
I believe in that freedom song.
Doesn't matter what you do to me.
