Redemption Song  Johnny Cash



Old[G] Pirates, yes, they rob[Em] I.[Em7]
Sold [C]I to the [G/B]merchant [Am]ships
[G]minutes after they [Em]took I  [C] from the [G/B]bottomless [Am]pit.
But my [G]hand was made[Em] st[Em7]rong
[C]By the [G/B]hand of the Al[Am]mighty.
We [G]forward in this gene[Em]ration[C] tri[Am7]umphant[D]ly.
[D]Won't you help to s[G]ing  [C]  these [D]songs of [G]freedom?
Cause [C]all I [D]ever had,[Em]     [C] re[D]demption[G] songs,[C]
re[D]demption[G] songs.[C]  [D]
[D]Emanci[G]pate yourselves from mental [Em]sla[Em7]very,
None but our[C]selves can [G/B]free our mind[Am]s.
[G]Have no fear for atomic e[Em]nergy,
Cause none of [C]them can [G/B]stop the tim[D]e.
How [G]long shall they kill our [Em]pro[Em7]phets
While we [C]stand a[G/B]side and loo[Am]k?
Ooh, some [G]say it's just a[Em] part of it.
We've [C]got to ful[Am7]fill the boo[D]k.
[D]Won't you help to s[G]ing  [C]  these [D]songs of [G]freedom?
Cause [C]all I [D]ever had,[Em]     [C] re[D]demption[G] songs,[C]
re[D]demption[G] songs,[C] re[D]demption[G] songs.[C]  [D]
