The Nightwatchman – Let Freedom Ring lyrics

There's a man homeless and hungry
There's a wind that's hard and biting
There's a song in need of singing
There's a fuse in need of lighting
And it's no secret, the day is coming
And it's a day I hope to see
If they ask, if they ask you brother
"Who told you that?"You didn't hear it from me

Let freedom ring

There's a book with seven seals
There's a beast with seven heads
There's seven angels on seven horses
And seven viles with seven plagues
So if you hear, if you hear a knocking
On that door, just let it be

Where the righteous, where the righteous stood
Where the righteous, where the righteous fell
There's a voice, soft in whisper
Coming from the bottom of the well
And I tried hard to remember
To remember what that voice said
Over and over, over and over
I repeated those words inside my head

Let freedom ring

And if they ask, if they ask you brother
"Who told you that?"Tell them it was me
