All that you have

Tracy Chapman

 Oh my mama told me 
 cause she learned the hard way 
 say she wanna spare the children 
 she say don't give or sell your soul away 'cause
 all that you have is your soul.
D | | A Asus2 | | | A | Asus2
   Don' be tempted by the shinny apple,
   don't you eat - of the bitter fruit.
   Hunger only for a taste of justice,
   hunger only for a word of truth, 'cause
all that you have is your soul.
 I was a pretty young girl once,
 I had dreams, I had high hopes.
 Married a man, he stole my heart away,
 he gave his love but what a hig price I paid and
 all that you have is your soul.
Why was I such a young fool
Thought I'd make history
Making babies was the best I could do
Thought I'd make someting that could me mine forever
Found out the hard way once can't possess another
And all that you have is your soul
I thought, thought that I could find a way
to beat the system
to make a deal and have no debts to pay
I'd take it all, I'd run away
Me for myself fist class and first rate
But all that you have is your soul.
Here I am waiting for a better day
A second change
A little luck to come my way
A hope to dream, a hope that I can sleep again
And wake in the world with a clear conscience and clean hands
'Cause all that you have is your soul.
All that you have is your soul...
