[1965]
Testo pubblicato su “Broadside Magazine” n.68 del marzo 1968.
Well the man says jump,
Everybody jump,
And the man says jump,
Everybody jump,
And the man says jump,
Everybody jump.
I ain't gonna jump.

It's a free country,
And that I know,
And I don't mean to jump
Every time I'm told.
When the man is wrong,
I don't go along,
And I ain't gonna jump, not me.


The man says Go…
The answer is no.

It's a free country,
And that I know,
And I don't mean to jump
Every time I'm told.
When the man is wrong,
I don't go along,
And I ain't gonna jump, not me.


The man says Kill…
I don't think I will.

It's a free country,
And that I know,
And I don't mean to jump
Every time I'm told.
When the man is wrong,
I don't go along,
And I ain't gonna jump, not me.


The man says Die…
But I don't know why.

It's a free country,
And that I know,
And I don't mean to jump
Every time I'm told.
When the man is wrong,
I don't go along,
And I ain't gonna jump, not me.


The man says Jump…
I ain't gonna jump.
