Philadelphia Freedom Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I used to be a rolling stone
You know if the cause was right
I'd leave to find the answer on the road
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done
Verse 2
'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man
Gave me peace of mind my daddy never had
Verse 3
Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do
Verse 4
If you choose to you can live your life alone
Some people choose the city
Some other choose the good old family home
I like living easy without family ties
Till the whipporwill of freedom zapped me
Right between the eyes
Verse 5
'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man
Gave me peace of mind my daddy never had
Verse 6
Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do
Verse 7
Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you
You know I love you, you know I love you, yes I do
Philadelphia freedom, I love you, yes I do
Phila delphia freedom, you know that I love you, yes I do
Philadelphia freedom, don't you know that I love you, yes I do
Philadelphia freedom, don't you know that I love you, yes I do
