(Keep on) Rockin in the Free World…

There’s col­ors on the street
Red, white and blue
Peo­ple shuf­flin’ their feet
Peo­ple sleepin’ in their shoes
But there’s a warnin’ sign on the road ahead
There’s a lot of peo­ple sayin’ we’d be bet­ter off dead
Don’t feel like Satan, but I am to them
So I try to for­get it, any way I can.

Keep on Rockin in the free world, Neil Young & Pearl Jam, Live MTV
Chan­son de Neil Young, Free­dom, Reprise (1989).

There’s col­ors on the street
Red, white and blue
Peo­ple shuf­flin’ their feet
Peo­ple sleepin’ in their shoes
But there’s a warnin’ sign on the road ahead
There’s a lot of peo­ple sayin’ we’d be bet­ter off dead
Don’t feel like Satan, but I am to them
So I try to for­get it, any way I can.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away, and she’s gone to get a hit
She hates her life, and what she’s done to it
There’s one more kid that will nev­er go to school
Nev­er get to fall in love, nev­er get to be cool.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

We got a thou­sand points of light
For the home­less man
We got a kinder, gen­tler,
Machine gun hand
We got depart­ment stores and toi­let paper
Got sty­ro­foam box­es for the ozone lay­er
Got a man of the peo­ple, says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn, got roads to dri­ve.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.
