Odd that these lyrics have never been posted at Mudcat, but I can't find it. Here's my transcription from a video at YouTube:


FREEDOM ROAD
Emerson Harper, Langston Hughes*

CHORUS: That's why I'm marchin', yes, I'm marchin',
Marching down freedom's road.
Ain't nobody gonna stop me, nobody gonna keep me
From marching down freedom's road.

1. Hand me my gun. Let the bugle blow loud.
I'm on my way with my head up proud.
One objective I've got in view
Is to keep a hold of freedom for me and you. CHORUS

2. Ought to be plain as the nose on your face:
There's room in this land for ev'ry race.
Some folks think that freedom just ain't right.
Those are the very people I want to fight. CHORUS

3. Now Hitler may rant, Hirohito may rave.
I'm going after freedom if it leads me to my grave.
That's why I'm marchin', yes, I'm marchin',
I'm marching down freedom's road.

4. United we stand, divided we fall.
Let's make this land safe for one and all.
I've got a message and you know it's right:
Black and white together, unite and fight.

CHORUS: That's why I'm marchin', yes, I'm marchin',
Marching down freedom's road.
Ain't no fascist gonna stop me, no Nazi's gonna keep me
From marching down freedom's road.
