"Oh, Freedom" is a song of African-American freedom after the Civil War. He is often associated with the Civil Rights Movement of the United States, with Odetta, who recorded it as part of the "Spiritual Trilogy", on his album Odetta Sings Ballads and Blues, and with Joan Baez, who performed the song at the 1963 March in Washington. Since then, Báez has performed the song live numerous times, both during his concerts and in other events. The song was recorded for the first time in 1931 by ER Nance Family as "Sweet Freedom".


First version in 1931 by ER Nance Family as "Sweet Freedom"

Some versions of the fourth verse contain the line "No more tommin", where the word tommin is a derogatory term that denotes the extreme submission of some black men towards a white person. The word seems to have been derived from the fictional character of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom, in Uncle Tom's Cabin. These words are not part of the traditional verses, but a later addition, which is part of popular tradition in the US, in which additional verses are added to traditional songs to highlight different personal feelings, agendas or lyrics.


Chicago, 1968. Equity issues continued, this time African-Americans and other non-white families who settled in the traditionally Lithuanian and Irish-American neighborhood led to numerous violent confrontations.

Time when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Rabbi Robert Marx and 700 others marched through the neighborhood of Marquette Park, enduring hatred and fanaticism, dodging rocks and bottles, and words of hatred to challenge segregation of housing in Chicago, and ask America to live up to the highest ideals.

Oh Freedom, 1997

Interpreted by The Golden Gospel Singers Song

Oh freedom, oh freedom, oh freedom over me
And before I'd be a slave I'll be buried in a my grave
And go home to my lord and be free

Oh freedom, oh freedom, oh freedom over me
And before I'd be a slave I'll be buried in a my grave
And go home to my lord and be free

No more weeping, no more weeping, no more weeping over me
And before I'd be a slave I'll be buried in a my grave
And go home to my lord and be free

Oh freedom, oh freedom, oh freedom over me
And before I'd be a slave I'll be buried in a my grave
And go home to my lord and be free
