(2/16/50 / Las Vegas, Nevada - When there was only one saloon in town!)

(3.25) Freedom (1960's)


To stand forth in strength;
The strength of wisdom,
The strength of knowledge,
The strength of power,
The strength to stand tall,
The strength to say nay,
The strength to be proud,
To be strong, able and wise,
Down this road true freedom lies...

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
