MANIC STREET PREACHERS - Let Robeson Sing Lyrics

Lyrics by nicky wire, music by james dean bradfield and sean mooreWhere are you now? Broken up or still around? The cia says you're a guilty manWill we see the likes of you again? Can anyone make a difference anymore? Can anyone write a protest song? Pinky lefty revolutionaryBurnt at the stake forA voice so pure - a vision so clearI've got to learn to live like youLearn to sing like youWent to cuba to meet castroNever got past sleepy moscowA giant man with a heavenly voiceMk ultra turned you paranoidNo passport 'til 1958Mccarthy poisoned through with hateLiberty lost still buried todayBeneath the lie of the usaSay what you wantSay what you wantA voice so pure - a vision so clearI've got to learn to live like youLearn to sing like youNow let the freedom train come zooming down the trackGleaming in the sunlight for white and blackNot stopping at no stations marked colored nor whiteJust stopping in the fields in the broad daylightStopping in the country in the wide open airWhere there never was a jim crow sign nowhereAnd no lilly-white committees, politicians of noteNor poll tax layer through which colored can't voteAnd there won't be no kinda color linesThe freedom train will be yoursAnd mineA voice so pure - a vision so clearI've got to learn to live like youLearn to sing like youSing it loud, sing it proudI will be here, I will be foundSing it loud, sing it proudI will be here, I will be found
