i shall be released lyrics – joan baez

(originally by bob dylan)

they say ev’rything can be replaced,
yet ev’ry distance is not near.
so i remember ev’ry face
of ev’ry man who put me here.
i see my light come shining
from the west unto the east.
any day now, any day now,
i shall be released.

they say ev’ry man needs protection,
they say ev’ry man must fall.
yet i swear i see my reflection
some place so high above this wall.
i see my light come shining
from the west unto the east.
any day now, any day now,
i shall be released.

standing next to me in this lonely crowd,
is a man who swears he’s not to blame.
all day long i hear him shout so loud,
crying out that he was framed.
i see my light come shining
from the west unto the east.
any day now, any day now,
i shall be released
