    Default Someday We'll All Be Free - Donny Hathaway

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6vi1rc_dAk

    One of the greatest songs ever written/recorded.


    "OK, first of all, I have this skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of the skin. It's something that I cannot help. Okay? But when people make up stories that I don't wanna be what I am, it hurts me. It's a problem for me, okay? I can't control it. But let's reverse it. What about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun to become other than what they are?" -- Michael Jackson (1993)

    LYRICS:
    Hang on to the world as it spins around
    Just don't let the spin get you down
    Things are moving fast
    Hold on tight and you will last

    Keep your self respect
    Your manly pride
    Get yourself in gear
    Keep in stride
    Never mind your fears
    Brighter days will soon be here

    Take it from me
    Someday we'll all be free, yeah

    Keep on walking tall
    Hold your head up high
    Lay your dreams right up to the sky
    Sing your greatest song
    And you'll keep going, going on

    Take it from me
    Someday we'll all be free

    Hey just wait and see
    Someday we'll all be free, yeah

    Take it from me
    Someday we'll all be free
    It won't be long

    Take it from me
    Someday we'll all be free

    Take it from me
    Take it from me
    Take it from me
    Take it from me...

    Donny is a legend. Master of keyboards. To think of how much he could have done in the 80's and beyond.

    That song is soul at its finest.

    George Benson has a cover of this on his new album. It's pretty good.
