Lyrics
:

There's colours on the streets
Red, white and blue 
People shuffling their feet
People sleeping in their shoes 
There's a warning sign on the road ahead 
There's a lot of people saying they'd be "better off dead' 
Don't feel like Satan but I am to them 
So I try to forget it any way I can 

Keep on rockin' in the free world 
Keep on rockin' in the free world 
Keep on rockin' in the free world 
Keep on rockin' in the free world

There's a woman of the night 
Got a baby in her hand 
Near an old street light 
Down by a garbage can 
Now she puts the kid away and she's gone to get a hit 
She hates her life and what she�s done to it 
There's one more kid who'll never go to school 
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool 

Keep on rockin' in the free world 
Keep on rockin' in the free world 
Keep on rockin' in the free world 
Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin'

There's a thousand points of light for the homeless man 
There's a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand 
Got department stores, toilet paper 
Styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer 
There's a man of the people 
Saying� �Keep hope alive" 
I've got fuel to burn 
I've got roads to drive 

Keep on rockin� in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world

Keep on rockin' in the free world

Mike Peters Notes
:A song that we just had to record. I think we all wished that we had written this when we first heard it. When Neil Young got up on stage to play with us in New York it was one of those moments we will never forget. This was one of the first things that we recorded in the studio because we knew it so well, I think this version was the second take, it was a case of one run through to get the sound right and then record it and that was that. I’m looking forward to playing it on the “RAW” tour.
