BIRDS CHIRPING)

(BABY CRYING)

(COOING)

Life is a wink of time

Heaven's a lonely climb

The road is so dark and long

Paved with all

kinds of wrong

And freedom, freedom

Freedom

Man's got to make his own

Sun warms the earth below

Earth drinks the winter snow

Seas feed the winds

That blow

Rain makes the grain

To grow

And freedom, freedom

Freedom

Man's got to make his own

We're all born to

live with love to give

Free in the heart and mind

We're all born to be

With a soul that's free

Man made the chains

that bind

Freedom

Talking about freedom

Freedom

Man's got to make his own

God made the sun to rise

And God made

the earth and skies

God made the seas and plains

God made the winds and rains

And freedom

Freedom

Freedom

Man's got to make his own

Freedom, freedom

Freedom

Man's got to make his own

Freedom

Freedom

Man's got to make

His own

No, not around here,

I haven't.

All right. Thank you.

Sun a setting in

the same old place

Moon about to climb the sky

You're a wasting

all my time a chasing

'Cause your supper

is about to fry

Mr. Tompkins, has Huck Finn

been in here today?

No, he hasn't.

Well, I best go on

down to the river then.

Thank you.

Jim. Oh, I knew it

That tug was

more like a whale.

You got to get home quick.

The ladies is waitin'

supper on you now.

Well, I know you don't

want no more punishment,

now, do you, Huckleberry?

Oh, heck, no.

All right then, let's go.

And Mr. Dobbins said all

you have to do is learn

to apply yourself better.

He said you have good

natural intelligence,

and you learn very fast.

He could be the

head of the class.

If he'd only try!

I'd like to see him the head

of the Sunday school class.

In fact, I'd just

like to see him in his

Sunday school class!

Just what was your

lesson for next Sunday?

Mmm, Moses and

the bull rushers.

Huckleberry dear,

my sister and I

are only concerned

about your future.

Judge Thatcher put

that buried treasure money

you found into a trust.

When you come of age, you're

going to be a young gentleman

of considerable means.

You don't have to end

up like your father.

A derelict, with his body

floating down the river.

Sometimes, I get

the feeling that

Pap ain't dead.

That body they found floatin'

was floatin' face up.

And everybody knows

that a dead man

floats face down.

Leastwise, that's

the feelin' I get.

Better get upstairs

and do your studyin'

now, Huckleberry.

Yes, ma'am.

And it wouldn't hurt to take

another look at that chapter

on Moses in the Bullrushes.

Robert Bernard Sherman (December 19, 1925 – March 6, 2012) was an American songwriter who specialized in musical films with his brother Richard Morton Sherman. According to the official Walt Disney Company website and independent fact checkers, "the Sherman Brothers were responsible for more motion picture musical song scores than any other songwriting team in film history." Some of the Sherman Brothers' best known songs were incorporated into live action and animation musical films including: Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Slipper and the Rose, and Charlotte's Web.
