What do the lyrics mean/refer to?

Me no gets it


          D         G             A7         D
I'm gonna walk that road that we walked long before,
Bm         D             A7
many years ago, and we'll walk a hundred more.

          D            F#m             Bm    A7      D
And we're comin' one by one. You didn't see us two by two.
D             Bm             A7
Ev'ry time you turn around another's comin' through.
          D                F#m    G   A7       D Bm
So we'll sing it long and proud so ev'ryone will know
          D         G          E    A7          D
That the road to freedom is a long, long way to go.


Turn and look out over there, just as far as you can see.
There are many more who have died for liberty.

Ask John Stewart, he wrote the song. This was on the album #16, one of those where they cranked up the reverb, or something.
