See the colors on the street
Red, White and Blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes
There's a warnin' sign on the road ahead
There's a lotta 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...(x4)

I see a girl in the night
With a baby in her hands
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts her kid away, she's gonna get a hit
She hates her life for what she's done to it
That's one mre kid that'll never go to school,
never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin' in the Free World...(x4)

There's a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
There's an kinder, gentler machine-gun hand
I see a band and a people trying to keep hope alive
We got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin' in the Free World...
