Subject: RE: Lyr: Freedom Doesn't Come Like a Bird on the Wing
I remember when Janis Joplin sang "Me and Bobby McGee"...a line, 'Freedom's just another word, for nothing left to lose..."..and how popular the song was....but, a friend of mine went ballistic, back then, and said that the song was 'a crock of shit, and subverting young people's minds, because freedom isn't what you have left, when everything's gone, but something of a substance, that has to be maintained, and fought for if necessary'...and a lot of people thought he was nuts!.........til' now!!
..but I guess I hung out with a 'different' crowd....
