Living in a cotton town
When the Yankees came around
They say you're freedom bound
They say you're freedom bound
Don't mean a thing yeah yeah yeah
Cos there's no charity
For my girl and me
There ain’t no one free
There ain’t no one free
In Dixie Land (yeah yeah yeah)

Whoah stand up
Honey child
You mean so much to me
There's no way I'm gonna be
No whippin' boy
Woah stand up
Honey child
The truth is plain to see
There's no way
There's no way I'm gonna be
No whippin' boy

Cos I don't need no overseer
And I don't need no nighttime tears
And I don't need no one to tie me down
There ain’t no way (there ain’t no way)
I'm gonna be
No whippin' boy
Yeah yeah yeah,
No whippin' boy baby
Woah no whippin' boy baby

Crossing the county line
We may find peace of mind
God knows what we'll find
God knows what we'll find
My girl and me yeah yeah yeah
Cos all we have is pride
No matter how they try
Can't change what they keep inside
Or what we keep inside
It's a God given thing yeah yeah

Woah stand up honey child
You mean so much to me
There's no way
I'm gonna be
No whippin' boy
Woah stand up honey child
The truth is plain to see
There's no way there's no way
I'm gonna be
No whippin' boy

Cos I don't need no overseer
And I don't need no nightime tears
And I don't need noone to tie me down
There ain’t no way
There ain’t no way
I'm gonna be
No whippin' boy

Yeah yeah yeah
No whippin' boy baby
Woah no whippin' boy honey
Woah no whippin' boy baby
Woah yeah whoah yeah
There ain’t no way
There ain’t no way
There ain’t no way
No whippin' boy
No whippin' boy baby
There ain’t no way
There ain’t no way
