Sounds of Freedom

In this autobiographical song (one of my favorites) Martin Sexton captures the essence of what it was like for him to follow his authentic path as a struggling musician.

Listen and feel free to project your own freedom fantasy into the melody.

Lyrics:

Freedom came my way that night
Just like a jet plane in and out of sight
I was hauling ass at a million miles an hour
Wondering how hard i’d hit

When they came into the station
They said i was bad beyond repair
But i got no qualms with my situation
Say here i am

So say cheri cheri won’t you dare to
Say cheri cheri won’t you dare to
Leave a message and your number please
Tie them up all my old fantasies
Put them in a big red bow and send them care of me

I’m taking a chance on the wind
I’m packing all my bags
Taking a mistake i gotta make
Then i’m glory bound

So i packed it up and i went to the winds
And i lived out of a vw bus for a year or two
Ain’t nothing but a pipe dream and my guitar
Livin off of apple fields and old cigars
Diggin this microphone checking it out every night all alone
The car battery is dead again so i got my head dead set against it

So say cheri cheri won’t you dare to
Say cheri cheri won’t you dare to
Leave a message and your number please
Take the time to want to satisfy me
Take all those fantasies and send them care of me

Chorus

Enjoy,
