All the world over,
So easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free
Listen, please listen,
That’s the way it should be
There’s peace in the valley,
People got to be free
You should see
What a lovely, lovely world this would be
Everyone learned to live together, ah hah
Seems to me
Such an itty bitty thing should be
Why can’t you and me learn to love one another?
All the world over,
So easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free
(Wanna be free)
I can’t understand it,
So simple to me
(It is)
People everywhere just got to be free
If there’s a man
Who is down and needs a helpin’ hand
All it takes is you to understand and
To pull him through, ah hah
Seems to me
We got to solve it individually, ah ah
And I’ll do unto you what you do to me
Said, no
Hear the shoutin’ from the mountains
On out to the sea
No two ways about it,
People have to be free
(They gotta be free)
Ask me my opinion,
My opinion will be
Natural situation for a man to be free
Get right on board now, huh, huh
Yeah,
Oh, what a feelin’s just come over me
Love can move a mountain,
Make a blind man see
Everybody sing it now
Come on let’s go see
Peace in the valley now,
We all can be free
See that train over there?
Now that’s the train of freedom
It’s about to arrive any minute, now
You know it’s been’a long, long overdue
Look out ’cause it’s a’comin’ right on through
Ha, ha, yeah, ha, ha, yeah

In honor of the Fourth of July holiday celebration, I would like to offer up the first Amendment to the United States Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This Amendment “guarantees” five basic freedoms to the people of the United States, which the Federal Government should pass no law to abridge (reduce or restrict).  They are:
Freedom of Religion.
Freedom of Speech.
Freedom of the Press.
Freedom to Assemble Peaceably.
Freedom to Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances.
The first ten Amendments to the Constitution are commonly known as the “Bill of Rights”.  Generally speaking, their intent is to restrict the government and formally guarantee rights to “people” or to “persons”.
