    Since we're talking history, how about this from 1642 (only song lyrics from the 1970s AFAIK):

    Stone walls do not a prison make
    Nor Iron bars a cage
    Minds innocent and quiet take
    That for an hermitage
    If I have freedom in my love
    And in my soul am free
    Angels alone that soar above
    Enjoy such liberty.

    Or one that has always made my heart ache - about African slaves in the US from 1927 but relating to an earlier era:

    I get weary and sick of trying
    I'm tired of living and scared of dying

    I saw a dead head sticker on a Cadillac. A little voice inside my head said donít look back you can never look back.

    News guy wept when he told he told us earth was really dying.

    A cop knealt and kissed the feet of a priest and a queer threw up at the sight of that.

    So no-one told you life was gonna be this way

    I met a gin-soaked bar room queen in Memphis, she tried to take me upstairs for a ride

    And you come to me on a summer breeze
