What’s That I Hear

*Phil Ochs 1940-1976*

What’s that I hear now ringing in my ear

I’ve heard that sound before

What’s that I hear now ringing in my ear

I hear it more and more

It’s the sound of freedom calling

Ringing up to the sky

It’s the sound of the old ways falling

You can hear it if you try

You can hear it if you try

What’s that I see now shining in my eyes

I’ve seen that light before

What’s that I see now shining in my eyes

I see it more and more

It’s the light of freedom shining

Shining up to the sky

It’s the light of the old ways a dying

You can see it if you try

What’s that I feel now beating in my heart

I’ve felt that beat before

What’s that I feel now beating in my heart

I feel it more and more

It’s the rumble of freedom calling

Climbing up to the sky

It’s the rumble of the old ways a falling

You can feel it if you try
