Elton John - "Philadelphia Freedom Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I used to be a rolling stone
I'd leave to find the answer on the road
You know if the cause was right
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done
'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom

From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Yeah gave me peace of mind my daddy never had
Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man

Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do
If you choose to you can live your life alone

Some others choose the good old family home
Some people choose the city
I like living easy without family ties
Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me
#############################################Right between the eyes
