Simple Song Of Freedom Lyrics - Bobby Darin

Review The Song (12)



Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air
Tell the people everywhere
We, the people here, don't want a war

Hey there, Mister Black Man can you hear me?
I don't want your diamonds or your game
I just want to be, someone known to you as me
and I will bet my life you want the same

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air
Tell the people everywhere
We, the people here, don't want a war

Seven hundred million are you listening?
Most of what you read is made of lies
sponsored links
But speaking one to one, ain't it everybody's sun
To wake to in the morning when we rise?

So come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air
Tell the people everywhere
We, the people here, don't want a war

Brother Solzhenitsyn are you busy?
If not would you drop a friend a line?
Tell me if the man, who is plowing up your land
has got the war machine upon his mind

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air
Tell the people everywhere
That we, the people here, don't want a war

Now no doubt some folks enjoy doin' battle
Like presidents, prime ministers and kings
So let's build them shelves where they can fight among themselves
and leave the people be who like to sing

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air
Tell the people everywhere
That we the people here, don't want a war

Let it fill the air
Tell the people everywhere
That we the people here, don't want a war

Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!

I have never heard that beautiful song before I heard it on john Sebastian's PBS special. Ay the time ,bobby darin sung it,I lived in my home country Austria and had no idea about bobby darin. Later, when I came to this country I learned more about the man.

To bad he did not live longer. Only the good die young.
He did not need artistic moves, no ridiculous outfits, he just sung. And I have him in my heart

Bring back folk songs | Reviewer: Donna Russell | 12/10/12

PBS is rebroadcasting Sebastian's "Folk Rewind." It is so awesome to see the performers again but even more important to hear the protest songs that inspired generations to try to change the world. The trouble was that we were naive--we thought we had changed the world but evil never rests and while we were no longer looking it has erased nearly all of the progress that we marched for. I'm 66 and I want to see (and be one of)millions singing and marching on every state capitol and Washington to reclaim this country's government from greed, graft and corruption and return it to THE PEOPLE--of, by and for the people. Outlaw pollution and put polluters in prison, stop the war machine, stop banks and Wall St from taking our government, our money and our homes. How long are THE PEOPLE going to tolerate this? Rise up and re-OCCUPY EVERYTHING!

A powerful song | Reviewer: Joseph Kubiny | 12/9/12

PBS special on folk music, by John Sebastian brought back the memories of the 60's. Bobby Darin's wonderful talent really comes to light with this powerful song. I was 22 when it became a hit in 1971. I loved it then and I still do today. I agree with the previous review, that this song should become the world's anthem.

Folk Music Heroes | Reviewer: andrea | 9/14/11

The PBS special with John Sebastian brings back an era we will never see again. Songs by the people, for the people, expressing their dissatisfaction with the world of bourgeois and the leaders of righteousness who cared not a wit for the common man. They sang of the troubles of the world, without the rose colored glasses of today's society. The didn't whine, they brought the peoples hearts and souls to the world.

memories | Reviewer: bruce farris | 6/16/11

I had forgot about 'SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM' until I heard it on PBS! What a great song, not only the song but also the way BOBBY DARIN sang it--gives you goose bumps!!
You can see(on PBS) that the audience was mesmerized and so am I---I can't hear it enough!
One tends to forget what a great artist BOBBY DARIN was....... and what a terrible time that the VIET NAM era was!!!!
LET US ALL SING A SIMPLE SONG OF FREEDOM!!!!

Nothing is ever Simple ! | Reviewer: Rose B. | 5/5/11

Bobby Darin could read hearts,even though his stopped beating when he was only 37. His creativity and brilliance brought him many awards which he truly deserved. Bobby learned,when he got off the pace, what the simple truths of life are---we are all human and peace should be our destiny.
I also loved his ballad "If I were a carpenter"...it rings true.

something we all need to remember | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/25/11

I also recently heard the John Sebastion /PBS special and I some how had forgotten this song over the years. It is a "simple song" that has such a powerful message. It is not the young men and women who want war, nor is it the average people of any nation but rather the "leaders"(?) that decide it is what we need. to quote another song, "War, what is it good for?"

Anti War | Reviewer: Sheryl Hobe' | 3/7/11

I remember when Bobby Darin sang this incredible song in 69. Today, though, on PBS, I was able to watch him perform. I loved seeing his smile, the peace sign and power fist at the end of this song. I believe Darins most prolific carrer choice was in 1969 when he started "Direction Records" so he could record folk and protest songs. Although he had a bad heart, he never stopped living dream!

Moving | Reviewer: Frank Rudiger | 12/24/10

On a a recent PBS production by John Sebastian I heard Bobby Darin sing this absolutely beautiful song that takes me back many decades. I've listened to it dozens of times and each time I wish everyone could listen to the lyrics and perhaps we could make a change. Thank you Bobby.

A Global Anthem? | Reviewer: Ron Rae | 12/3/07

The very first time I heard this song, as done by Tim Hardin, it became one of the most favorite of folk songs of my interest in music. I was in awe of the lyrics and the importance it had toward the conditions in the world. It remains an anthem for all peoples just as politicians and governments continue create conflicts to the hindrance of a peaceful existence of humanity.

There is no other song that would be deserving of being A Global Anthem.

sensational | Reviewer: ann collins | 8/13/07

The man was awesome.What a voice.I bought the movie tonight.I cant get enough of him.If he has a fan club I wanna be a member.and I want to know everything he ever sang.I am awe struck
