Independence Day

Well she seemed all right by dawn's early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak.
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinking again
But daddy left the proof on her cheek.
And I was only eight years old that summer
And I always seemed to be in the way
So I took myself down to the fair in town on independence day.

Well word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was a dangerous man.
But momma was proud and she stood her ground,
She knew she was on the losing end.
Some folks whispered some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
And when time ran out
There was no one about on Independence Day.

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing.
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning.
Let the weak be strong
Let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day.

Well she lit up the sky that 4th of July
By the time that the firemen had come.
They just put out the flames and took down some names
And sent me to the county home.
Now I ain't saying that it's right or it's wrong
But maybe it's the only way
Talk about your revolution,
It's Independence Day

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing.
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning.
Let the weak be strong
Let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day.

Roll the stone away,
It's Independence day.
