Prison Song

Graham Nash

 Am
One day a friend took me aside
 Dm
and said, "I have to leave you.
 Am
For buying something from a friend
 EmE7
They say I have done wrong.   
 Am
For protecting the name of a man
 Dm7
they say I'll have to leave you.
 AmEmDm7Am
So now I'm bidding you farewell for much too long.   

 AmDm7
And here's a song to sing for every man inside.
 AmEmE7
If he can hear you sing it's an open door.   
 AmDm7
There's not a rich man there who couldn't pay his way
 AmEmDm7Am
and buy the freedom, that's a high price for the poor.   

 Am(9Dm7(6Am(9EmE7
 Kids in Texas, smoking grass, ten year sentence, comes to pass.
 Am(9Dm7(6Am(9EmE7
 Misdemeanor in Ann Arbor, ask the judges why?      

 Am
Another friend said to her kids
 Dm
I'm gonna have to leave you
 Am
For selling something to the man
 EmE7
I guess I did wrong.  
 Am
And although I did the best I could
 Dm7
I'm gonna have to leave you.
 AmEmDm7Am
So now I'm kissing you farewell for much too long.   

 AmDm7
And here's a song to sing for every man inside.
 AmEmE7
If he can hear you sing it's an open door.   
 AmDm7
There's not a rich man there who couldn't pay his way
 AmEmDm7Am7
and buy the freedom, that's a high price for the poor.
