GUEST,michaelr Obit: Farewell Mr Mandela (1918-2013) (41) Lyr Add: LION IN A CAGE (John Faulkner) 05 Dec 13


Lion In A Cage (John Faulkner)

The Veld is burning in the African sun
Black blood flows from the white man's gun
Locked in a jail for twenty five years
Held like a lion in a cage of tears
Mandela will be free
Mandela will be free, Mandela Nelson Mandela

People in Sharpeville and Soweto born
Mandela will be free
Living with the lash of the white man's scorn
Mandela will be free
Sweating in the dungeon of the diamond mine
Mandela will be free
Blood was shed on the picket line
Mandela will be free.

The lion is ready for victory
Mandela will be free
To lead the people to their destiny
Mandela will be free
No prison bars in Pretoria
Mandela will be free
Can hold back the storm in Africa
Mandela will be free.

The time of truth is in his eyes
Mandela will be free
His words tear down the veil of lies
Mandela will be free
The world hears the beat of the talking drum
Mandela will be free
The time for Africa has come
Mandela will be free.
