OH FREEDOM
Traditional spiritual with lyrics adapted by SNCC members


Oh Freedom
Oh Freedom
Oh freedom over me
And before I’ll be a slave I’ll be buried in my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free


No more cryin’ (3x) over me
And before I’ll be a slave I’ll be buried in my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free

No more hatred (3x)  over me
And before I’ll be a slave I’ll be buried in my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free

Oh freedom (3x) over me
And before I’ll be a slave I’ll be buried in my grave
And go home to my Lord and be free
