The Prisoner Lyrics by England Dan And John Ford Coley

 

The Prisoner by England Dan And John Ford Coley


Take us to the prisoner
Let us gaze into his eyes
To see what kind of man
It takes a nation to despise
Take us to the prisoner
Let us look upon his face
To see why twenty thousand men
Would gladly take his place
Won’t someone give a drink to him?
Remove the chains and let him live
Let him live
Take us to the prisoner
Let us listen to his voice
To see why worlds of wisdom’s
In a cell without a choice
Take us to the prisoner
Torn and bent beneath the chains
We wonder if the world is really
Worthy of his name?
Won’t someone give a drink to him?
Remove the chains and let him live
Let him live
We know where we’re going
For we heard the new winds blowing
And we’re got to know for ourselves
It won’t help to listen to someone else
Take us to the prisoner
With his eyes so full of grace
The priests have lied
And kings have died
Filled with their own disgrace
Won’t someone give a drink to him?
Remove the chains and let him live
Let him live
Let him live
Let him live
