INDEPENDENCE DAY (Gretchen Peters)
[Actually in A; capo 2.]

G   G   C   C     G   G   C   C

           G         G        C            C
Well she seemed all right by dawn's early light
           G               G            C     C
Though she looked a little worried and weak
    G            G             C          G
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinking again
    D                D              D      D - C
But Daddy'd left the proof on her cheek

G          G            C        C
I was only eight years old that summer
       G               G          C   C
And I always seemed to be in the way
     Em           Em          C       G
So I took myself down to the fair in town
 D     D         G   G   C   C     G   G   C   C
On Independence Day

Well, word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was a dangerous man
But Mama was proud and she stood her ground
She knew she was on the losing end

Some folks whispered, some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
And when time ran out, there was no one about
 D     D         G   G   G [stop]
On Independence Day

             D   D   D        D         Em    Em   Em   Em
Let freedom ring,     let the white dove sing
          C           C          G       G     D      D   D   D
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
                Em7    Em7   Em7        Em7       C   C
Let the weak be strong,        let the right be wrong
C           C       G           G       D [stop]
  Roll that stone away, let the guilty pay
                   G   G   C   C     G   G   C   C
It's Independence Day

Well, she lit up the sky that Fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames and they took down some names
And sent me to the county home

Now I ain't saying it's right or it's wrong
But maybe it's the only way
Talk about your revolution
It's Independence Day

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll that stone away, let the guilty pay
                   G   G   C           C       G   G
It's Independence Day,       roll that stone away
C          C         G   G   C   C    G.
  It's Independence Day
