Peter, Paul And Mary - No Easy Walk To Freedom Lyrics




Brother Martin was walkin with me,
And every step I heard liberty
Tho he's fallin', come a million behind!
Glory, Hallelujah, gonna make it this time!

No easy walk to freedom,
No easy walk to freedom,
Keep on walkin and we shall be free
That's how we're gonna make history

Across the ocean, the blood's running warm
I, I hear it coming, there's a thunderin' storm
Just like we lived it, you know that it's true,
Nelson Mandela, now we're walkin with you!

No easy walk to freedom,
No easy walk to freedom,
Keep on walkin and we shall be free
That's how we're gonna make history

In our land, not so long ago,
We lived the struggle, and that's how we know
Slavery abolished, comin' freedom's call
Keep on walking and apartheid will fall!

No easy walk to freedom,
No easy walk to freedom,
Keep on walkin and we shall be free
That's how we're gonna make history

Oh, bread for the body, there's got to be
But a soul will die without liberty
Pray for the day when the struggle is past!
Freedom for all! Free at last! Free at last!

No easy walk to freedom,
No easy walk to freedom,
Keep on walkin and we shall be free
That's how we're gonna make history

You and me!

    That song is the title track to the album "No Easy Walk to Freedom", from, I think 1985. ...just before their 25th Anniversary tour. Thanks for posting it. :D
    It's not on the album in your video.

    "I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended."
     -- Nelson Mandela
     (1918-2013) South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, imprisoned for 27 years, President of South Africa (1994-1999)
