"I am a daughter of the South; of the white working class, of the black working class; of the Democrat, and the Republican; of the gay, and the straight; and I can tell you one thing—we are far more alike than we are different. We cannot let hate divide us; we cannot let ignorance diminish us; we cannot let those whose greed fills their every waking hour take our country from us. They can't take U.S. from US—unless we let them. I recorded this with Bhi Bhiman, all-American singer-songwriter from St. Louis, whose parents are from Sri Lanka. America's strength are her people, whether they came 4,000, 400, or 40 years ago, and we can't leave anyone behind. Let's walk down Freedom Highway together. Written by Pops Staples in 1965." —Rhiannon

Freedom Highway

March down freedom highway
Marching each and every day

Made up my mind that I won't turn around
Made up my mind that I won't turn around

There is just one thing
I can't understand my friend
Why some folks think freedom
Is not designed for all men

There are so many people
Living their lives perplexed
Wondering in their mind
What's gonna happen next

That's why we're gonna
March down freedom highway
Marching each and every day

Made up my mind that I won't turn around
Made up my mind that I won't turn around

Found dead people in the forest
Tallahatchie River and lakes
The whole world was wondering
What's wrong with the United States

Yes, we want peace
If it can be found
Marching the freedom highway
We're not gonna turn around

That's why we're gonna
March down freedom highway
Marching each and every day
Made up my mind
