Waking Up Is Hard To Do



Tim Hardin – Simple Song Of Freedom

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 here, don’t want a war

Hey, there, Mister Black Man can you hear me

I don’t want your diamonds or your game

I just want to be someone who knows to you as me

And I will bet my life you want the same

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 here, don’t want a war

Seven hundred million are you listening

Most of what you read

Most of what you read is made of lies

But speaking one to one, ain’t it everybody’s sun

To wake to in the morning when we rise

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 here, don’t want a war

No doubt some folks enjoy doing battle

Like presidents, Prime ministers and kings

So let’s all build them shelves

So they can fight among themselves

And leave the people be who love to sing

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 here, don’t want a war

Come and sing a simple song of freedom

Sing it like you’ve never sung before

Speaking one to one, ain’t it everybody’s

Ain’t it everybody’s sun

To wake to in the morning when we rise

When we rise
