Lyrics
Freedom don't come easy, babe
When your spirit's flyin' up among the clouds
And when you're faced with the wise man's road
You gotta know where to go
Sun and the stars are a travelin' man's companion
Leadin' the way for his journey
East and west, wherever you go, mm
Leadin' the way
The first to come
Showin' the way for his children
Now it's up to you
Do you know you're pullin' through
Man, it's not easy and you know it
Children in a happy place
They're always smiling
Showin' all their love with no deception
Treatin' each other like brothers and sisters do, yeah, yeah
Children in a real good place, they're always tryin'
Jumpin' and playin' in the middle of the afternoon
Just havin' a ball, don't worry at all, yeah

Leadin' the way
The first to come
Showin' the way for his children
Now it's up to you
Do you know you're pullin' through
Man, it's not easy and you know it
Children in a happy place
They're always smiling
Showin' all their love with no deception
Treatin' each other like brothers and sisters do, yeah, yeah
Children in a real good place, they're always tryin'
Jumpin' and playin' in the middle of the afternoon
Just havin' a ball, don't worry at all, yeah
