Philadelphia Freedom

Philadelphia Freedom

Elton John

I used to be a rolling stone
You know if the cause was right
I'd leave to find the answer on the road

I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done

'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia Freedom
From the day that I was born, I've waved the flag
Philadelphia Freedom, took me knee-high to a man
Yeah, gave me peace of mind, my daddy never had

Oh, Philadelphia Freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light, shine a light
Shine a light, won't you shine a light?
Philadelphia Freedom, I love you, yes I do

If you choose to you can live your life alone
Some people choose the city
Some others choose the good old family home

I like living easy without family ties
Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me
Right between the eyes

'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia Freedom
From the day that I was born, I've waved the flag
Philadelphia Freedom, took me knee-high to a man
Yeah, gave me peace of mind, my daddy never had

Oh, Philadelphia Freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light, shine a light
Shine a light, won't you shine a light?
Philadelphia Freedom, I love you, yes I do

Philadelphia Freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light, shine a light
Shine a light, won't you shine a light?
Philadelphia Freedom, I love you, yes I do

My Philadelphia Freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light, shine a light
Shine a light, won't you shine a light?
Philadelphia Freedom, I love
You know I love, you know I love you, yes I do

Philadelphia Freedom, I love you, yes I do
Philadelphia Freedom, don't you know that I love you? Yes I do
Philadelphia Freedom, don't you know that I love you? Yes I do
Philadelphia Freedom, don't you know that I love you? Yes I do
