2:55 minutes








I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free (Billy Taylor & Dick Dallas)

And I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
And I wish I could break all the chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things I'd like to say
Say 'em loud, say 'em clear for the whole round world to hear

I wish I could share all the love that's in my heart
Remove every doubt that keeps us apart
And I wish you could know what it means to be me
Then you'd see and agree that every man should be free

I wish I could live like I'm longin' to live
I wish I could give like I'm longin' to give
And I wish I could do all the things I'd like to do
You know they still is quite a few
Yes Sir, and I'm way way over due

I wish I could be like a bird up in the sky
How sweet it would be if I found out I could fly
I'd soar up to the sun and look down upon the sea
And I'd sing because I know how it feels to be
I'd sing because I know how it feels to be
I'd sing because I know how it feels to be free
Yeah
