Daryl Hall & John Oates – Philadelphia Freedom lyrics

I used to be a rolling stone

You know if the cause was right

Id 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

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

Yeah gave me peace of mind my daddy never had

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 wont you shine a light

Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do

If you choose to you can live your life alone

Some people choose the city

Some others choose the good old family home

I like living easy without family ties

Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me

Right between the eyes
