I Shall Be Released

I was listening to an  internet radio show that Jason and I recorded at Kill Radio around 2008 and this song was on it.

Such a great song - the very end of it always gives me goosebumps.

"I Shall Be Released" performed by Nina Simone and written 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 shinin'
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
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

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

Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
All day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed

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