Free me, free me
Why wont you free me
Free me from your spell
Come on and free me
Why wont you free me
Come on and free me
Free me from your spell

Why should I worry
That you might not love me
Youre not the only love
That Ive ever had
Your sweet memory
Will always comfort me
So why should I be feeling sad

As far as I can tell
You knew so well
I was always
At the end of the line
Ive loved you as much
As any man can
But not enough
To make you mine

So long, easy rider
I know I'll miss you for awhile
But sooner or later
I know that I'll forget you
And I tell you babe

Free me
Come on and free me
Why wont you free me
Free me from your spell
Oh babe, free me
Why wont you free me
Come on and free me
Free me from your spell

We let a good love die
We let it pass us by
Though you tried to
Keep me hangin on
But with all this doubt
Itll never work out
So tomorrow I'll be travellin on
And saying:

So long, easy rider
I know I'll miss you for awhile
But sooner or later
I know that I'll forget you
And I beg it babe

Free me
Come on and free me
Why wont you free me
Free me from your spell
Come on and free me
Im on my knees, babe
Free me
Why wont you free me
Free me from your spell

Oh babe, come on
Come on and free me
Why wont you free me
Free me from this spell
