Written by Joss Whedon and performed by Sonny Rhodes, it is also known as the Theme to Firefly. Firefly was a woefully short-lived series on the Fox television station. It was a sci-fi western and the opening theme conveyed the main hero and protagonist of the show; a hardened war veteran named Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds. The song has been covered by a band called The Henry Kaiser Band and can be heard in the closing title music of Firefly's movie adaption, Serenity. The theme is also used as the chorus to filk band Escape Key in their Firefly tribute entitled Mal's Song.
Lyrics for The Ballad of Serenity.

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me
