153. Oh, I Woke Up This Morning

1 Oh, I woke up this morning with my mind stayed on freedom.
Woke up this morning with my mind stayed on freedom.
Woke up this morning with my mind stayed on freedom,
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah.

2 I was walking and talking with my mind stayed on freedom.
Walking and talking with my mind stayed on freedom.
Walking and talking with my mind stayed on freedom,
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah.

3 I was singing and praying with my mind stayed on freedom.
Singing and praying with my mind stayed on freedom.
Singing and praying with my mind stayed on freedom,
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah.

4 Oh, I woke up this morning with my mind stayed on freedom.
Woke up this morning with my mind stayed on freedom.
Woke up this morning with my mind stayed on freedom,
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah.
