Born In A Prison  John Lennon
















[C]   [Cm]    [G]    [A]                          
We're b[C]orn in a prision, r[Cm]aised in a prision
S[C]end to a prision called s[C7]chool,
We c[F]ry in a prision, We l[Fm]ove in a prision,
We d[C]ream in a prision, like [D]fools.
W[E]ood becomes a flute when it's l[C#m]oved,
[A]reach for yourself and your b[B]attered mates.
[E]Mirror becomes a razor when it's b[C#m]roken,
[A]Look in the mirror and see your s[B]hattered fate.

[C]     [Cm]      [G]     [A]                     
We live with no reason, kicked round for no reason,
Thrown out without reason like tools.
Work in a prison and hate in a prison
And die in a prison as a rule.
Wood becomes a flute when it's loved,
reach for yourself and your battered mates.
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken,
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate.


We live in a prison among judges and wardens
And wait for no reason or use
We laugh in a prision, go through all four seasons
And die with no vision or truth
Wood becomes a flute when it's loved,
reach for yourself and your battered mates.
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken,
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate.

[C]   [Cm]    [G]   [A]
