I Shall Be Released by Nina Simone*

*lyrics by Bob Dylan

They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
So I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
Man who says he’s not to blame
All day long I hear him hollering so loud
Just crying out that he’s not to blame

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released
