A live recording of a song by Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul from the 1984 album "Voice of America", unplugged with Southside Johnny. I remembered hearing the studio version of this song in the Michael Moore movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" but this live version just feels much better to me. This particular version was performed live for a radio station in November 1993. More details about the performance are available here: http://www.mv.com/ipusers/richbreton/...

Lyrics:
And the river opens for the righteous,
And the river opens for the righteous,
And the river opens for the righteous, someday.

I was walking with my brother,
And he wondered, what was on my mind.
I said what I believe in my soul,
It ain't what I see with my eyes.
And we can't turn our heads this time.

I am a patriot and I love my country,
Because my country is all I know.
I want to be with my family,
With people who understand me,
I got nowhere else to go.
I am a patriot.

I was talking with my sister,
She looked so fine,
I said baby what's on your mind?
I want to run like the lion,
Released from the cages,
Released from the rages,
Burning in my heart tonight.

I am a patriot and I love my country,
Because my country is all I know.

And I ain't no communist, and I ain't no capitalist.
And I ain't no socialist, and I sure ain't no imperialist.
And I ain't no democrat, and I ain't no republican.
I only know one party,
And its name is freedom.

Baby I am, I am, I am,
I am a patriot.

And the river opens for the righteous,
And the river opens for the righteous,
And the river opens for the righteous,
And the river opens for the righteous,
And the river opens for the righteous... someday.
Someday.

Being a bootleg as it is, you cannot buy it anywhere. You can almost certainly find it for download somewhere. Voice of America was never released on CD in the U.S. either, so no luck there. Several songs from this album are available on a Greatest Hits CD though.
