       [F#m]    [-]  [E]  [-]   [A]                   
In some versions, some additional D-E-A is added.

VERSE 1:

[A] Years ago, my [D]heart was set to l[Bm]ive, o[E]h
----[C#m]-this F is in som[F#m]e versions ex[Bm]changed for a[F] G
and I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds
[A]It gets so hard at [D]times like now to [Bm]hold [E]on
But [C#m]guns they wait to be [F#m]stuck by, [Bm]at my side is [F]God


CHORUS:

And there [A]ain't no [F#m]one goin' to [D]turn me '[A]round;
there [A]ain't no [F#m]one goin' to [D]turn me '[A]round

[F#m]    [-]  [E]  [-]  [A]                           
VERSE 2:
[A]There's people around[D] who [Bm]tell you What they [E]know
And [C#m]places where they [F#m]send you, and it's e[Bm]asy to g[F]o
[A]They'll zip you up and [D]dress you down and [Bm]stand you in a [E]row
But you [C#m]know you don't have [F#m]to, you [Bm]can just say [F]no


CHORUS:

And there [A]ain't no [F#m]one goin' to [D]turn me '[A]round;
there [A]ain't no [F#m]one goin' to [D]turn me '[A]round
And there [A]ain't no [F#m]one goin' to [D]turn me '[A]round;
there [A]ain't no [F#m]one goin' to [D]turn me '[A]round

BRIDGE:

[Bm]  I've been built up and trust[D]ed,
[Bm]  Ive been broke down and bust[D]ed
[Bm]  But they'll get theirs and [D]we'll get ours if [Bm]we can
just [A]hold [D]on, [A]hold [D]on,  [A]
[A]hold [D]on, [A]hold [D]on

[A]It gets so hard at [D]times like now to [Bm]hold [E]on
Well[C#m], I'll fall if I don'[F#m]t fight, and [Bm]at my side is [F]God
