Voici Joan Baez au Festival de Newport en 1968 dans la chanson de Gil Turner, Carry It On, devenue l’une des grandes chansons du mouvement de lutte pour les droits civiques – un mouvement dans lequel Joan Baez a été très engagée.

CARRY IT ON

There’s a man by my side walking
There’s a voice within me talking,
There’s a voice, within me saying,

Carry it on, carry it on.
Carry it on, carry it on.

They will tell their empty stories,
Send their dogs to bite our bodies,
They will lock us up in prison,

Carry it on, carry it on.
Carry it on, carry it on.

When you can’t go on any longer,
Take the hand, hand of your brother,
Every victory brings another,

Carry it on, carry it on.
Carry it on, carry it on.

There’s a man by my side walking
There’s a voice within me talking,
There’s a voice, within me saying,

Carry it on, carry it on.
Carry it on, carry it on.
