Free

Written in March 2006 in Nashville, Tennessee

She was 21 with a “Rock and Roll” soul
She was born and raised on “Rebel Radio”
With Waylon and Willie, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones

Searching for a beat in the heart of the Nation
Looking for a sound like a sweet salvation
Somehow that sound’s gonna be her home

And for 27 dollars and 67 cents
She filled up the tank and she ain’t been back since

She says, “I’m free to do what I wanna
Free, yeah, I think I’m gonna be
Free to do what I was born to do”

He was just a kid on the Graveyard shift
His whole world changed when she rolled in
She said so much without saying so much as a word
But believe me, he heard

And he left that job, at 8AM
He’s been chasing his dreams now ever since then

He says, “I’m free to do what I wanna
Free, yeah I think I’m gonna be
Free to do what I was born to do?

Well I guess it’s been about a half a dozen years
A quarter million miles and I’m still out here
And no matter where I go, I know I’m not alone

Because we’re all part of this big ol’ race
Of chasing dreams and by God’s grace
Someday
Someway
I pray we’ll find our way
Home

And we’ll be free to do what we wanna
Free yeah I think we’re gonna be
Free to do what we were born to do

Yeah, we’re all free to do what we wanna
Free yeah I think we’re gonna be
Free to do what we were born to do
