Kris Kristofferson - Broken freedom song lyrics
Got a song about a soldier Ridin' somewhere on a train Empty sleeve pinned to the shoulder And some pills to ease the pain. Started drinkin' in El Paso He was drunk in San Antone Tellin' strangers who were sleeping How he hated going home. Just a simple song of freedom He was never fighting for No one's listenin' when you need 'em Ain't no fun to sing that song no more. Got a song about the sister waitin' Somewhere by the phone For some man who never missed her Ever since he come and gone. And it's harder for a woman With a baby on the way That's the price of being human When you're poor enough to pay. So she listen to the freedom In the silence at her door No one's missin' till you need 'em Ain't no fun to sing that song no more. Got a song about a saviour Looking lonesome and afraid At a city full of strangers And a cross he never made. And he's sadder than he's wiser And a longer way from home And he wonders why his father Left him bleeding and alone. Just a broken song of freedom And the closing of a door No one's missin' till you need 'em Ain't no fun to sing that song no more...
