Song Lyrics

All right, these are all new songs

We didn’t wanna, you know, trot out the same old bollocks

Might be a good idea just to bring to this

Extraordinary shining country some new songs

Lift you up, not that you need us to lift us up

Thank you for lifting us up

Joe Strummer used to lift me up

When I was a kid listening to punk rock records

The Clash were our favorite group

And this is the last song that he ever wrote

With his wife Louise, and Elijah his daughter are here too

And I’m singing it for them too

I want you to sing it with me

It’s a long (long)

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

When freedom rises from the killing floor

No lock of iron or rivet can restrain the door

And no kind of army can hope to win a war

It’s like trying to stop the rain or still the lion’s roar

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s like trying to stop the whirlwind scattering seeds and spores

Like trying to stop the tin cans rattling jailhouse semaphore

Like laying when your spins are manacled its your spirit that gets raw

It’s not the small little patch of sky you see, but the spirit it, it soars

And long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

My Man, Adbul Jamaica

When freedom arise from the killing floor

Can’t stop the rain nor lions that roar

No matter whirlwind, scatter seeds and spore

From the sky, world visions of poor

Six waves come, then seventh break shore

We don’t wanna distant, when you a killa boar

What I’m trying to say, this thing gone high, yay

What’s in store, what’s in store

Sing this one:

4-6-6 6-4

4-6-6 6-4

4-6-6 6-4

4-6-6 6-4

4-6-6 6-4

In the ghettos of the colors don’t forget the human core

In townships of humanity there would be no poor

From when the rock is heavy comes the purest ore

The first six waves might break in the bay, the seventh breaks on the shore

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

4-6-6 6-4 / It’s a long walk

4-6-6 6-4 / Long walk to freedom

4-6-6 6-4 / It’s a long walk

4-6-6 6-4 / Long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

4-6-6 6-4 / It’s a long walk

4-6-6 6-4 / Long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

Sing with me

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

It’s a long walk, long walk to freedom

Not just a president for South Africa

Not just a president for Africa

This is a president for anyone, anywhere

Who knows freedom
