Liberty by Robert Hunter

Saw a bird with a tear in his eye
Walking to New Orleans---my, my, my
Hey, now, Bird, wouldn't you rather die
than walk this world when you're born to fly?

If I was the sun, I'd look for shade
If I was a bed, I would stay unmade
If I was a river I'd run uphill
And if you call me you know I will

Mmmm, freedom
Ooo, liberty
O ... leave me alone
to find my own way home

I say what I mean and I don't give a damn
I do believe and I am who I am
Hey, now, Mama, come take my hand
Whole lotta shakin' all over this land

If I was an eagle I'd dress like a duck
Crawl like a lizard and honk like a truck
If I get a notion I'll climb this tree
or chop it down and you can't stop me

Mmmm, freedom
Ooo, liberty
O ... leave me alone
to find my own way home

Went to the well but the water was dry
Dipped my bucket in the clear blue sky
Looked in the bottom and what did I see?
The whole damned world looking back at me

If I was a bottle I'd spill for love
Sake of mercy I'd kill for love
If I were a juicer I'd binge for love
If I were a coward I'd cringe for love

Freedom
Liberty
Leave me alone
to find my own way home
