Philadelphia Freedom Lyrics

Play "Philadelphia Freedom"
on Amazon Music

I used to be a rolling stone
You know if the cause was right
I'd leave to find the answer on the road
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done

`Cause I live and breathe...

    "Philadelphia Freedom" is indeed about Billie Jean King, one of the first big-time athletes to be "out". She was the head coach of the Philadelphia Freedoms of World Team Tennis, and as such was the first woman to coach a pro team including male athletes. Elton credited her with being one of the people who gave him the courage to come out himself. This gave him the "peace of mind my daddy never had."

    This song was written to honor Billie Jean King, famous tennis star of the 70's and fellow homosexual
