Garth Brooks' Powerful "We Shall Be Free" Sheds Light On World Intolerance (WATCH)

Garth brooks Songs | Garth Brooks' Powerful

Protests and riots have been a part of our nations history since the beginning of time. In 1992 Garth Brooks wrote the song "We Shall Be Free" in light of the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles. Four police officers were acquitted for the beating of Rodney King, and the city erupted in riots.

Garth Brooks was in Los Angeles during the riots and was inspired to write the inspirational "We Shall Be Free". The powerful song sends a message of hope in a time of chaos. The music video won an ACM Award for best video, and features many influential celebrities and newsmakers. It reminds us of the oppressions happening all around the world, and although the song was written and recorded in the 1990's, it still remains relevant today. 

With the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri and 2015 riots in Baltimore, Maryland fresh in our minds the song "We Shall Be Free" seems more significant than ever. Equality, love, and peace are things that we all deserve, no matter what.

Watch the moving music video for "We Shall Be Free" below, and let us know what you think. 


This ain't comin' from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand

When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there's shelter over the poorest head
We shall be free

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
'Cause we shall be free
When we're free to love anyone we choose
When this world's big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free
We shall be free

We shall be free
Have a little faith
Hold out
'Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there's only one race and that's mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, have a little faith

We shall be free
