Free DC! - Statehood Now!
D.C. Statehood Songbook E-mail

Music and song have been important in many liberation movements over the past century, such as the U.S. civil rights movement and the fight against apartheid in South Africa. Rasi Caprice's rap "Free DC" [http://www.myspace.com/caprice202], Leonard, Coleman & Blunt's "Stand Up 4 DC" [http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/stand-up-4-d-c-single/id493572134] and songs like them could play a similar roll in the struggle to get statehood for D.C. We will miss D.C. 's Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown, who died may 16, 2012 at age 75 and his support for D.C. statehood.

Below are three famous protest songs with the lyrics revised for the statehood movement:

We Shall Overcome original lyrics derived from a gospel song by Charles Albert Tindley with revisions by Pete Seeger and others

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome some day;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

D.C. shall be a state someday.


We'll walk hand in hand,

We'll walk hand in hand,

We'll walk hand in hand someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

D.C. shall be a state someday.


We shall have our rights,

We shall have our rights,

We shall have our rights, someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

D.C. shall be a state someday.


We're on to victory,

We're on to victory,

We're on to victory someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

D.C. shall be a state someday.


All Americans around

All Americans around

Shall make DC a state someday

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

D.C. shall be a state someday.

IF I HAD A HAMMER original words and music by Lee Hays and Pete Seeger

If I had a hammer

I'd hammer in the morning

I'd hammer in the evening

All over this land

I'd hammer out danger

I'd hammer out a warning

I'd hammer out freedom for my brothers and my sisters

All over D.C.

 

If I had a bell

I'd ring it in the morning

I'd ring it in the evening

All over this land

I'd ring out danger

I'd ring out a warning

I'd ring out freedom for my brothers and my sisters

All over D.C.

 

If I had a song

I'd sing it in the morning

I'd sing it in the evening

All over this land

I'd sing out danger

I'd sing out a warning

I'd sing out freedom for my brothers and my sisters

All over D.C.


Well I've got a hammer

And I've got a bell

And I've got a song to sing

All over this land

It's the hammer of justice

It's the bell of freedom

It's the song about statehood for my brothers and my sisters

All over D.C.

Blowing In The Wind original music and Lyrics by Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down

Before they call him a man

How many seas must a white dove sail

Before she sleeps in the sand

How many times must our rights be denied

Before such abuse is forever banned

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

The answer is blowing in the wind

 

How many years must a mountain exist

Before it is washed to the sea

How many years can D.C. exist

Before we're allowed to be free

How many times can Congress turn its head

And pretend that it just doesn't see

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

The answer is blowing in the wind

­


How many times must Congress look up

Before it can see the sky

How many ears must Congress have

Before it can hear us cry

How many arrests will take till it knows

That our freedom has too long been denied

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

The answer is blowing in the wind
