I WISH I KNEW HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO BE FREE
Bill Taylor & Dick Dallas
1964, 1968 Duane Music Inc.

I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all these chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things  I know I should say
Say 'em loud say 'em clear
For the whole wide world to hear

I wish I could share
All the love that's in my heart
Remove all the bars that still keep us apart
I wish you could know what it means  to be me
Then you'd see and agree  every man must be free

I wish I could give
All I'm longing to give
I wish I could live like I'm longing to live
I wish I could do all the things I know I can do
Though I'm way over due
I'd be starting anew

I wish I could be like a bird that's in the sky
How sweet it would be if  I found that I could fly
I'd soar to the sun and look down at the sea
Then I'd sing 'cause I'd know how it feels to be free
Then I'd sing 'cause I'd know how it feels to be free
