Freedom By: Jimi Hendrix Cry of Love

Ok here's how it fits together
Basic Riff (br): You got my pride hangin outta my bed You been messin with my life, so I brought my lead. Even messin with my children, and you screamin at my wife, Get off of my back if you wanna get out of here alive.
The Chrorus Riff (which i don't know so i didn't include, SOMEONE HELP!) Freedom (freedom) give it to me (thats what i want now) Freedom (freedom) give it to me (thats what i need now) Freedom (freedom) give it to me (to live) Freedom (freedom) give it to me (so i can give)
BR Youve got my heart ?speakin 'lectric water? Youve got my soul screamin and hollerin you know you hooked my girlfriend, you know the drugstore man but i dont need it now, just tryin to slap it out or her hand.
Chorus again
Bridge: You don't have to say that you love me if you don't mean it, you better believe If you need me or you just want to bleed me, you better stick in your dagger in someone else, so i can leave.
solo section
BR: Right on, straight ahead etc.
