We Shall Be Free Lyrics

CHORUS 1. In the mornin' You shall be free 'Fore day You shall be free Hear me say You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free

VERSE 1. I was down in the hen house other night Awful dark, I didn't have no light I reached for a chicken, I got me a goose A man come out, I had to turn him loose

CHORUS 2. I jumped a gully You shall be free I jumped a rose bush You shall be free ... You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free

VERSE 2. Preacher an' a rooster had a terr'ble fight Preacher knocked the rooster clean out o' sight Preacher told the rooster that'll be all right Meet ya at the hen house tomorrow night

CHORUS 3. You shall be free In the mornin' You shall be free You know, rooster You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free

VERSE 3. I's down in the hen house on my knees I thought I heard a chicken sneeze Only a rooster sayin' his prayers Thankin' his God for the hens upstairs

CHORUS 4. Here's the preacher You shall be free He's a-singin' You shall be free Takin' up c'llection You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free

VERSE 4. Oh, some folks says times is hard Preacher says put your trust in God Matter no diff'rence, don't you see A hog can't run too fast for me

CHORUS 5. Gettin' that ... You shall be free Gettin' that hogeye You shall be free Eatin' up chitt'lin's You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free

VERSE 5. As some people say, a preacher won't steal I caught two down in my corn fiel' One had a bushel, other had a peck Other'n had a roastin' ear down his neck

CHORUS 6. ... You shall be free Gettin' roastin' ears You shall be free Gettin' dried corn You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free

VERSE 6. Oh the gun said boom an' the hog said ... ... jumped on 'er with all o' his will ... How that hog gets ...

CHORUS 7. ... You shall be free I don't care You shall be free Forget about ... You shall be free When the good Lord sets you free
