"Free All The People (south Africa)" as written by and Jack Holmes....
You got to free all the people in South Africa
You got to make life worth living in Soweto
You got to free all the people in South Africa
You got to make life worthwhile
Give reason to smile

Freedom is a birthright
Given by Jah to Man
You can not claim it, this you must understand
Who are you to decide, who has to give it up
Know it in your heart, that it's wrong
They've had enough

[Chorus]
Slavery is brutal, it steals your identity
Wherever it's living, suffer humanity
What leads you to believe, you can treat people so
You know it isn't right, give up the fight
Let them go!

[Chorus]

It's not right, this hate for Life you're teaching
No more fight, we're all in this together
You've lost sight, you'll never find what your
Soul is seeking
You, you abolish, apartheid

[Chorus]

    General CommentAlthough I've never heard this song, I rate Santana highly as a guitarist (how can't you?). I am a white Afrikaans South African, born in 1989, so I didn't live during the Apartheid era. I agree that our past isn't right, but eversince the end of Apartheid the blacks have totally fucked up our country. Our crime and murder rates are amongst the highest in the world, and say what you like, it's 99% due to the blacks. Racism will forever linger in South Africa, we'll never get rid of it. Many white South Africans choose to immigrate to Australia, the UK or elsewhere because of these problems (crime and racism). Santana is a great artist and in my books, one of the great guitarists.
