If one of us is chained

I wrote several years ago about the powerful lyrics of Solomon Burke's song "None of us Are Free." The link I provided to his performance has expired so I feel compelled to link again to one of his amazing performances of this song posted on YouTube. We must all understand that

if one of us is chained none of us are free.

Although different writers have written this concept in different ways, no truer words have ever been sung or spoken. We are the keeper of our brother and sister.

Lyric excerpt:

It's a simple truth we all need, just to hear and to see.
None of us are free, one of us is chained.
None of us are free.
now I swear your salvation isn't too hard too find,
None of us can find it on our own.
We've got to join together in spirit, heart and mind.
So that every soul who's suffering will know they're not alone.

Chorus:

None of us are free.
None of us are free.
None of us are free, one of us are chained.
None of us are free.
