  1. I Must Ride

From the recording I Must Ride

"I know I’m no saint / No, I’m not a holy man / Though I’ve been baptized in wine / But I won’t leave my fate In the hands of another man / Who tells me my soul isn’t mine"

Lyrics

I MUST RIDE
© 2020 Michael R. J. Roth

Some people say
That I am the enemy
Though I’ve committed no crime
If I don’t pack my bags and leave town
It’s the end of me
So I ride in the morning light

When freedom calls
I know that I must answer
The cry of an eagle in open skies
I don’t know where I can go
But I’ll take my chances
And I know
I must ride

I know I’m no saint
No, I’m not a holy man
Though I’ve been baptized in wine
But I won’t leave my fate
In the hands of another man
Who tells me my soul isn’t mine

When freedom calls
I know that I must answer
The cry of an eagle in open skies
I don’t know where I can go
But I’ll take my chances
And I know
I must ride

I was born to be free
And not into slavery
Though I know freedom comes at a price
I must speak what I believe
It’s not cowardice or bravery
Only truth in the face of lies

When freedom calls
I know that I must answer
The cry of an eagle in open skies
I don’t know where I can go
But I’ll take my chances
And I know
I must ride
