Here you are :

ROCKING IN THE FREE WORLD
-------------------------------------
There's colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes
But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead
There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan, but I am to them
So I try to forget it, any way I can.
Keep on rocking in the free world,
Keep on rocking in the free world
Keep on rocking in the free world,
Keep on rocking in the free world.
I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away, and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life, and what she's done to it
There's one more kid that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.
Keep on rocking in the free world,
Keep on rocking in the free world
Keep on rocking in the free world,
Keep on rocking in the free world.
We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
We got department stores and toilet paper
Got Styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.
Keep on rocking in the free world,
Keep on rocking in the free world
Keep on rocking in the free world,
Keep on rocking in the free world.

Thanks, but those are the lyrics from the site, yeah? Then ones to the original song? The lyrics to Jovi's version are slightly different, mainly in the last verse. Does anyone know what Jon sings here?

Keep On Rockin'

I don't know the original that well but I think Neil Young sings "People rockin' in the free world" in the chorus instead.

I love OWNL, as it was the first Live Bon Jovi material I heard. I don't really like a couple of the tracks, but that Rockin' In The Free World track is one of the best on the album.

Prayer and Bad name have been edited, compared to the versions on the Crush DVD.

But you guys have to admit, though OWN was a sucky attempt at a live Album, "I don't like Mondays" with Sir Bob was GENIUS!!!!


Or is it just me?

Love

Dude no offense or anything but you know you can make out those 2 or 3 little words that are different from the original version.
