Baez, Joan - I Shall Be Released Lyrics




They say ev'rything can be replaced,
Yet ev'ry distance is not near.
So I remember ev'ry face
Of ev'ry man who put me here.
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east.
Any day now, any day now,
I shall be released.

They say ev'ry man needs protection,
They say ev'ry man must fall.
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some place so high above this wall.
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east.
Any day now, any day now,
I shall be released.

Standing next to me in this lonely crowd,
Is a man who swears he's not to blame.
All day long I hear him shout so loud,
Crying out that he was framed.
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east.
Any day now, any day now,
I shall be released

Baez, Joan I Shall Be Released Comments
  1. Peru Gia

    A better version than that of Bob Dylan.

  2. Le Ménestrel

    Beautiful singing of Joan and very nice images on the video; good work; thank you to share.

  3. Kevin Varney

    I like the piano and the slide guitar, if that's what it is.

  4. Awesomeat

    Although Canadian-born, English was not my first language, so in the pre-internet age, I discovered artists like Joan Baez by borrowing CDs from the local library. I borrowed Any Day Now over and over again, I enjoyed it so much. I love you, Joan.

  5. Joel Weiner

    Joan was released tonight at the Beacon Theater in NYC...last performance . Love you forever......

  6. ryan Hamilton

    Wish we had more time music like this

  7. Jurgen Kerber

    Why am I Crying?

  8. Step Williamson

    Joan, Bob, I have been so very blessed to have been permitted to listen to you each sing together and separately for such a long time ; and to have been supported by you together and separately in my various successes and failures toward release . Speaking ONLY personally as a minor, twentieth-century, schizoid creature, "it is a tremendous epoch which we have shared." I understand, and thank G-d for, every song on the Any Day Now album. Today perhaps I am either 17 or 76. Thank you TheRackitts. "People of the Americas : Use YouTube."

    Vince -
