VERSE 1 I think about our nation and what it means to live among the free If that makes me a racist, well then you might want to step away from your tv. The fair and balanced side, the anti freedom side. They only have one aim and that is to deceive. In America!
I was born free. Free to say what I want to say. And I will fire the guns of freedom. Until they carry me away.
There's times I hardly recognize This country that I knew so well They've replaced peoples' thoughts of freedom With whatever ideas they can sell But take a look around, some folks are going down, If they want me freedom they can all go straight to hell In America!
CHORUS (double chorus):
I was born free. Free to say what I want to say. And I will fire the guns of freedom. Until they carry me away I was born free. Free to travel my own road. And I will shout the words of freedom. Until they carry me away.
MINI SOLO (4 bars)
You don't need permission to speak your mind. This is America!
You can't sell me down the river You can't sell my freedom to the highest bidder
