Fo'ty acres jes' fo' me!
And freedom in mah soul!
Great pines lickin' up de sky,
Hickories too and oaks so high,
And freedom in mah soul!

I can see it jes' as plain
As if it all was done now.
Fo'ty acres, mule an' plow --
Cabin big enuf fo' foah,
Garden fo' mah own front do',
And freedom in mah soul!

Den we gotta dig a well
Deep, so she'll be plenty cool,
Next we're goin' to raise a church,
And den, we'll build a school.
Lawd, if dis ain't jes' too grand,
Led us straight to de promised land,
Freedom in mah soul.
