Lyrics
Ceceilia

In the south of alabamy
Near the gulf of Mexico
On the banks of the ol' Tombigbee
Walks an old lost forgotten soul
He was once a man of virtue
Sadly less a man of means
He said Cecelia I wont let'em hurt you
I'll set you free. I'll set you free

My love for you is stronger than these plantation walls
And it howls at the moon at night
It don't know about the law
And it is at your beck and call
I'll set you free
Cecelia don't you cry
by and by
Cecelia don't you cry

She was born into subjection
She was born without a say
He was her first and only revelation
That she might not die that way
I will love you all the seasons
What you want is what I'll be
I'll be your rock I'll be your reason
Just set me free. Just set me free.

My heart is so much stronger than these plantation walls
And it howls at the moon at night
It don't care about the law
And every night I hear it call
I'll set us free
Cecelia don't you cry
by and by
Cecelia don't you cry
He had never been inclined to help another man die
Until the boss man declined their wish to leave
With Cecelia at his side under that dark October sky
They climbed aboard his boat and left that man to bleed

No sooner than the boss man died his fury fell out of the sky
Racer's storm was on the hunt they say
Revenge and water filled that boat and sank his one and only hope
As he heard Cecelia's cries fading away

In the south of alabamy
Near the gulf of Mexico
On the banks of the ol' Tombigbee
Walks an old lost forgotten soul

From those murky, shallow waters
To the Caribbean sea
You can hear him cry Cecelia
Come set me free. Come set me free
