Oh, Freedom

This post-1865 song was an anthem of the Civil Rights movement and was made popular by human rights activist and singer Odetta. The composer and writer of the song are unknown.

Oh Freedom

Oh freedom, oh freedom, oh freedom over me
And before I’d be a slave I’d be buried in my grave
Go home my lord and be free.
