Live and Let Live — Official Music Video

This song was written in honor of Bluegrass Pride during our first season and almost immediately became our unofficial anthem here in San Francisco. Its message of inclusion and unqualified acceptance speaks to the exact mission of Bluegrass Pride and the way we want the world to be. Making this music video was a way for us to show people what Bluegrass Pride is really about.

When you watch this video and listen to this song, you can truly feel the community that made it and all the love that makes Bluegrass Pride so special. As we continue to grow, we hope that folks can take this message with them, and maybe, in the end, we can spread a little more unconditional love throughout the world and make tomorrow a little bit better.

LYRICS:

When I was a child my mama said to me
That she would love me no matter who I grew up to be
She held me in her arms and kissed me one two three
And said she hoped that I would marry someone who loved me

Let the rainbow fly, let the banjo sing
Go on and grab you a partner and give 'em a swing
Let the fiddle play, let the people be
When we live and let live, we let freedom ring

My daddy always talked about honesty
And how a person better practice if they're lookin' to preach
So when I fell in love we didn't disagree
He said he'd never want to change a single thing about me

Let the rainbow fly, let the banjo sing
Go on and grab you a partner and give 'em a swing
Let the fiddle play, let the people be
When we live and let live, we let freedom ring

Well if I have a child, I'll set her on my knee
And I would pass along the wisdom that was given to me
I would sing this song of how the world could be
If we would love all our neighbors unconditionally

Let the rainbow fly, let the banjo sing
Go on and grab you a partner and give 'em a swing
Let the fiddle play, let the people be
When we live and let live, we let freedom ring

Let the rainbow fly, let the banjo sing
Go on and grab you a partner and give 'em a swing
Let the fiddle play, let the people be
When we live and let live, we let freedom ring
