Lyricist: Bernie Taupin & Elton John   Composer: Bernie Taupin & Elton John


I used to be a rolling stone you know
If a cause was right
I'd leave to find the answer on the road
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done

Because I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee high to a man, yeah
Gave me peace of mind my daddy never had

Oh Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you
Shine the light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine the light, shine the light
Shine the light, won't you shine the light
Philadelphia freedom, I love-ve-ve , yes I do

If you choose to you can live your life alone
Some people choose the city (some people choose the city)
Some others choose the good old family home (some others choose a good old family home)
I like living easy without family ties (living easy)
Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me
Right between the eyes

Because I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee high to a man, yeah
Gave me peace of mind my Daddy never had

Oh Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you
Shine the light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine the light, shine the light
Shine the light, won't you shine the light
Philadelphia freedom, I love-ve-ve , yes I do

Oh Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you
Shine the light, through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine the light, shine the light
Shine the light, won't you shine the light
Philadelphia freedom, I love-ve-ve
You know I love-ve-ve, yeah
You know I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do! (Philadelphia freedom)
I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do! (Philadelphia freedom)
Don't You know that I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do! (Philadelphia freedom)
Don't You know that I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do! (Philadelphia freedom)
Don't You know that I love-ve-ve you
Yes I do! (Philadelphia freedom)
