Look, here comes Marvin!
Doin’ twenty five for robbin’
a store fulla five and dime.
He worked all his life,
had his wages all stole
But they say that ain’t no crime!

Here comes Rudy
with a shovel in his hand!
Doin’ fifteen for selling a bag.
The banker took his green
Now the banker makes the scene,
Wavin’ a big old flag!

What does freedom mean to them?
What does freedom seem to them?
On a chain gang Fourth of July,
Yeah, a chain gang fourth of July

Here comes John,
Been slavin’ since the dawn,
Doin’ life for breakin’ a man.
When the jailer shoot his gun
In his Caddy just for fun
They give him a retirement plan.

What does freedom mean to them?
What does freedom seem to them?
On a chain gang Fourth of July,
Yeah, a chain gang fourth of July.

A flag’s waving on the courthouse
This sunny summer day
Just like old Betsy Ross sewed.
Don’t quite mean the same
When you’re shoveling tar
On a hot stretch of blacktop road

What does freedom mean to them?
What does freedom seem to them?
On a chain gang Fourth of July,
Yeah, a chain gang fourth of July
