Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my head was made strong
By the hands of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly
Won't you help to sing
Another song of freedom
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
The songs of freedom

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
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it's just a part of it
But we got to fulfil the book

Won't you help to sing
Another song of freedom
'Cause all I ever have yeah
Redemption songs
Songs of freedom
Songs of freedom

Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my head was made strong
By the hands of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly
Won't you help to sing
The songs of freedom
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs
The songs of freedom
Songs of freedom
Song of freedom
Songs of freedom
Songs of freedom
