The Grandfather - Lyrics

We could be as free as the wildflowers on the mountain
As the birds upon the ocean as the waves upon the sand
Calm the winter's gale let's set the wheels in motion
Rise up my friends and countrymen come join along with me

Build a mountain high blossomed with integrity
Problems never die without answering the cause
We'll set the hills ablaze with the words of revolution
Ye bureaucrats amazed the birds have flown their cage

But we could be as free as the wildflowers on the mountain
As the birds upon the ocean as the waves upon the sand
Calm the winter's gale let's set the wheels in motion
Rise up my friends and countrymen come join along with me

But friends have acted strange my mother has forsaken me
The man in black has spoken with an awful evil tongue
The man who speaks the words of love and understanding
Has turned my humble frame to the darkness of his fire

But will you come with me to the buttercups and daisies
Over hills and mountains beneath the sky above
The Earth will be our truth when the truth has been our sorrow
So rise my friends and countrymen come join along with me

In union there is strength we find our strength in numbers
Let's organize ourselves into a powerful band
It is difficult to see this world so ill-divided
Is it hard for you and me to face these problems sole

We could be as free as the wildflowers on the mountain
As the birds upon the ocean as the waves upon the sand
Calm the winter's gale let's set the wheels in motion
Rise up my friends and countrymen come join along with me
