[Chorus]
Wake up time for freedom, baby
Wake up time to fly
Wake up time for freedom, baby

Ah ha, ah ha ha, yeah
Ah ha, ah ha ha, well
Ah ha, ah ha ha
Ah ha, ah ha ha

There's someone knocking on my door
A tall dark figure I've never seen before
His badge shone brightly like a star in the sky
Drag me out to the waiting car

[Chorus]

A flock of vultures spinning round my head
Left me on the roadside for dead
Cars pass by but no one stares
These waking dreams, they never end

[Chorus]

You we gotta try

Lawman on the bank now, honey
Hound dog on my trail
Wake up time for freedom
Before the night prevails

There's someone knocking on my door
A tall dark figure I've never seen before
Yeah, backs on blinding, like a star in the sky
He drag me out to the waiting car

Sometimes, like this, they came

Ah ha, ah ha ha, yeah
Ah ha, ah ha ha
Ah ha, ah ha ha, yeah
Ah ha, ah ha ha

[Chorus: x4]

Wake up time for freedom, baby

Freedom
