Old Pirates, yes, they rob I.
 CG/BAm
Sold I to the merchant ships 
 GEmCG/BAm
 minutes after they took I   from the bottomless pit.
 GEm7
But my hand was made strong
 CG/BAm
 By the hand of the Almighty.
 GEmCD
We forward in this generation triumphantly.

Chorus
 GCDG
   Won't you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
 CDEmCDG
   'Cause all I ever had,    redemption songs,
 CDGC
   redemption songs. 

 DGEm7
 Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
 CG/BAm
None but ourselves can free our minds. 
 GEm
Have no fear for atomic energy,
 CG/BAm
'Cause none of them can stop the time. 
 GEm7
How long shall they kill our prophets
 CG/BAm
While we stand aside and look? 
 GEm
Yes, some say it's just a part of it.
 CD
We've got to fulfill the book.

Chorus

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it's just a part of it.
We've got to fulfill the book.
Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had, redemption songs,
These songs of freedom, songs of freedom.
