  Zac Brown Band – “Free” | 2008

It is hard not to eventually include the 2008 songFree by the American country music group Zac Brown Band on Music Monday (previous post). I love the bit on the Inspiration for this song:

Zac and his band decided to climb Mount Warning during a trip to Byron Bay in the Australian state of New South Wales in 2006. Mt Warning stands 3,793 ft above sea level and is the first place that the sun touches in the morning as it rises over the Australian Mainland. As Zac sat there in the beautiful peace and quiet, he and his band were the only people on earth to be there at that point experiencing this magnificent display of nature and it is then that they wrote this song.

“Free”

So we live out in our old van
Travel all across this land
Me and you

And we’ll end up hand in hand
Somewhere down on the sand
Just me and you

Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be
Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be

We drive until the city lights
Dissolve into a country sky
Just me and you

Lay underneath the harvest moon
Do all the things that lovers do
Just me and you

Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be
Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be
And ever be

No we don’t have a lot of money
No we don’t have a lot of money
No we don’t have a lot of money
No we don’t have a lot of money
No we don’t have a lot of money
No we don’t have a lot of money
No we don’t have a lot of money
All we need is love

We’re free as we’ll ever be
Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be

So we live out in our old van
Travel all across this land
Me and you
