Oh pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I,
From the bottomless pit

My hand was made strong
By the hand of the All Mighty
We fought in this generation, triumphantly

So won’t you help me sing?
These songs of freedom, are all I ever have
Redemption songs… (x2)

[1]:
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time
[2]:
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Oh, some say it’s just a part of it,
We’ve got to fulfill the book…

Won’t you help to sing?
These songs of freedom, are all I ever have
Redemption songs… (x3)

[1] / [2]…
Won’t you help to sing?
These songs of freedom, are all I ever have
Redemption songs… (x2)
Are all I ever had — Redemption songs… (x3)
