Listen while I tell the hard luck story
'bout a man named Jack McDuff
He believed in God and glory
But he just wasn't tough enough. huh!
-
I believe in the freedom song
Long live liberty!
I believe in the freedom song
I'll choose my own destiny
-
Well they took him and they beat him
Underneath the old hanging tree
Saying, "Jack, you must die"
"What will your last words be?"
-
Jack, he hung his head back
"Long live liberty!"
"I believe in the freedom song"
"Doesn't matter what you do to me"
-
With a rope around his neck they left him hanging
High on that old hanging tree
On her knees his wife was screaming
"Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy"
-
I believe in the freedom song
Long live liberty!
I believe in the freedom song
Doesn't matter what you do to me
-
Thin Lizzy
Freedom Song
-
One of many tales for the Searcher

I think I posted the lyrics to this song before on this blog. But I've been listening to Thin Lizzy alot in the past few months and this tune is one of my favorites. Phil could tell a story to music like nobody's bizness. So I was inspired to draw what I saw when I heard the song. Since The Searcher is also inspired by the music of Thin Lizzy, I felt that this song would be a nice addition to the song list.
