We Sing The "Rainbow Freedom Song" by Paul McCartney Sounds Like Religious Chant

Updated on June 11, 2013

Freedom Song in the Spirit of Independence Day

Isn't it fascinating that a Brit is singing our song of Independence. The lines are so simple and Paul asks us to all "Join In". Is he asking just the audience or EVERYONE in the world? As one of the original Beatles he led the world in song for PEACE and many other high ideals.

This particular song means a lot to me because I am part of a community. In fact, I am part of numerous communities both in-person, meet-up groups, networking groups and also virtual communities. When one becomes a leader in a community, you can see all the conflicts within and do your best to sort them all out, to create an atmosphere of "freedom" for all to express themselves, yet provide boundaries so members are not hurt through repression or suppression.

Paul McCartney Sings Us A Song

Rainbow in the Sky

Independence Day is a celebration of people's rights to live free. We all want to feel unbounded, liberated, happy, joyous, comfortable in our surroundings. How can we do this and also enable others to do the same thing? Not such an easy task when people have different ideas about how to live.

Humanity has traveled far to bring forms of government, an underlying structure to provide support and guidelines for everyone to live in harmonious peace, yet we still have further to go. Each day we see many conflicts, inner turmoil, stepping on other's toes, minority versus majority, telling other people what to do and how to live; we all need room to grow.

Beautiful Rainbows

Song Lyrics

Ziggy Marley - Good old days, number 9 on the dragonfly album.

Feel good song, with a good message.


irie days come on play

let the angels fly let the devils die

got to do what you can with the time at hand

Ali boom mah yeah Ali boom mah yeah

don't worry your mind its just the test of time

in five years these be the good old days


No one knows what the future holds for everything has a season

its not a time for war its a time for peace

tomorrow knows tomorrow woes

I remember when grandpa use to say grandson these be the good old days


These be the good old days


now comes the moon with its starry lights

and so begins the night life

the tribal dance puts me in a trance

as she pulls me in with her magic swing

I asked of her what do we celebrate

she said to me these be the good old days


These be the good old days


leh leh leh leh leh leh leh leh


There is no future there is only now

let's cherish these moments that we now know


These be the good old days


Listen and Learn to the Sounds of Freedom

We learn and discover our world in so many different ways. I'm talking about freedom. I will fight for the right to live in freedom.

As someone interested in current events, the environment, health and society, I feel that our world is shrinking. Literally shrinking. Not just due to communications and technological advances that bring us together, but in the devastation of our earth due to our own misguided use of energy, power, and greed as we step over our earth and squander its resources.

Some people might say that the global environment expresses the evolution of mankind and our own intentions, beliefs, and actions in this world on a much grander scale. Could it be that when humanity subdues hatred and anger that the fire of the earth, the outpouring of lava, the down-pouring of hail will subside and we will have a permanent rainbow in the sky?

I do not think that the natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes are within our power as the whole of earth has growing pains. Is it within our power to change the course of history? Can our generation make better decisions with the knowledge of technology to prevent explosive oil leaks, chemical pollutions to the environment and living organisms, the loss of clean air, water and earth really shrinks our small planet? I don't really have answers, but only an ideal thought that we should do our best to try. 

It is time to take individual responsibility, and that is really what freedom is all about most especially as we see what is happening to our world and those being affected.

My Life Is Full Of Colors

Wow! While creating this Hub this song was a gift given to me that expresses my thoughts. 

"[CHORUS] There' s a rainbow in the sky all the time don't be blind

there's a rainbow in the sky all the time don't be blind

don't be blind


Said you i'm living in my fantasy

but is you who is blinded by reality

the material world means so much to you

you just can't get what i'm telling you


[CHORUS]


Cause in a town called sorrow there was joy

yes and there i met painless fear

freed he expressed emotions that egos fear

my life is full of colors yeah my mind is clear


CHORUS


Found i mercy in every sunrise i am born again from the womb of the night

all i have i have left behind

minds eye eyes eye a light will shine


CHORUS"


Do You See The Rainbow

Are you living with ideals of tolerance?

      Dear Helen ~ I debated whether I would approve this comment, which on the surface appears to be a solicitation to sell some service or product. However, upon consideration and viewing what further you have to say, it may be interesting to learn what your socio-economic- political views may be on this matter of freedom. I do think part of the solution to poverty and enslavement is poverty. Thank you, Debby

      Yes freedom is a wonderful thing. We sing it we live it, we tell it; but can we also do it? Have you ever considered a basic income as a foundation solution to poverty and free choice? If you like I would glad to introduce you to the concept. Just a friendly communication. We can only make things better if we are willing to test and debate all solutions. And a basic income is a human freedom friendly solution and does not collide with capitalism, individuality and the right to prosper in life. Think about it.
