Mother Freedom ~ Bread

Bread was a 1970s rock/pop band from Los Angeles, California. They were one of the most popular rock groups of the early 1970s, a primary example of what later was labeled “soft rock”, releasing a string of well-crafted, melodic soft rock singles.

The band consisted of David Gates (Vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, violin, viola, percussion), Jimmy Griffin (vocals, guitar, keyboards, percussion), Robb Royer (bass, guitar, flute, keyboards, percussion, recorder, backing vocals), Mike Botts (drums; joined in 1970), and Larry Knechtel (bass, guitar, keyboards, harmonica; replaced Royer in 1971).

Freedom – keep walkin’
Keep on your toes and don’t stop talkin’ ’bout
Freedom – get goin’
Lots to be learned and lots to be knowin’ ’bout
People – gotta reach ‘em
Sit ‘em right down and then you gotta teach ‘em ’bout
Freedom – gotta win it
Gotta put yourself smack dab in it

Hey tomorrow
Now don’t you go away
‘Cause freedom
Just might come your way

Freedom – keep tryin’
People stay alive and people keep dyin’ for
Freedom – so don’t lose it
Ya gotta understand ya just can’t abuse it
Freedom – get movin’
Never gonna stop till everybody’s groovin’ on
Love for – one another
Callin’ some friend and callin’ some brother

Hey tomorrow
You’re not so far away
Mother freedom
we’ll know you well someday

About DJ Allyn

DJ Allyn is a burned out radio guy who went on to become a burned out sound engineer for a few Seattle area grunge bands in the 1980s and 1990s. Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
