Saw a bird with a tear in his eye
Walking to New Orleans, my oh 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
If you call me you know I will
If you call me you know I will

Ooo, freedom, ooo, liberty
Ooo, leave me alone
To find my own way home
To find my own way home

Say what I mean and I don't give a damn
I do believe and I am who I am
Hey now mama come and 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
Chop it down and you can't stop me

Ooo, freedom, ooo, liberty
Ooo, leave me alone
To find my own way home
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 was a liar, I'd lie for love
Sake of my baby, I'd die for love
Sake of my baby, I'd die for love

Ooo, freedom, ooo, liberty
Ooo, leave me alone
To find my own way home
To find my own way home
I'm gonna find my own way home

    The world is full of evangelists, gurus, self-anointed prophets, and their followers. Liberty for me speaks to each person finding their own spiritual and intellectual peace. In other words, it is a classic counter cultural statement about being guided by your own light. It also could be ron paul's campaign song!
