052. Standing in the shadow

Standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow.
Standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.
Standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow.
Standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.

Well, I’m standing here underneath a tall oak tree,
standing in the shadow,
and the mighty river Jordan is all I see.
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.
I’m gonna cross that river one fine day.
Standing in the shadow,
I’m gonna cast my troubles and fears away.
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.
Standing in the shadow,
freedom is waitin’,
I’m standing in the shadow,
Oh, I love you freedom.
Standing in the shadow, Oh yes!
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.

A-well, the mighty river Jordan is a deep and wide,
standing in the shadow,
but I’m gonna make it over to the other side.
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.
And when I get over yonder to the other shore,
standing in the shadow,
I know freedom is waiting for ever more.
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.

Standing, standing, standing, standing, standing in the shadow of freedom.
Standing, standing, standing, standing, standing in the shadow of freedom.
Standing in the shadow,
oh, I love freedom,
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.
Freedom is a waitin’,
standing in the shadow,
oh, yes!
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.
Standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow,
standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow of freedom.

Standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow,
standing in the shadow,
I’m standing in the shadow.
