Philadelphia Freedom Lyrics

Artist: Elton John

Philadelphia Freedom
Elton John
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Released as a UK single in February, 1975

I used to be a rolling stone
You know if the cause was right
I'd 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 won't 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
1975 Big Pig Music Limited

The light of freedom is the messianic light. It zaps you right between the eyes (the third eye ofcourse). Just sayin...
