Redemption Song

Johnny Cash

 GEmEm7
Old Pirates, yes, they rob I. 
 CG/BAm
Sold I to the merchant ships
 GEmCG/BAm
 minutes after they took I   from the bottomless pit.
 GEmEm7
But my hand was made strong
 CG/BAm
 By the hand of the Almighty.
 GEmCAm7D
We forward in this generation triumphantly.


 DGCDG
 Won't you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
 CDEmCDGC
Cause all I ever had,      redemption songs,
 DGCD
redemption songs.  

 DGEmEm7
 Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
 CG/BAm
None but ourselves can free our minds.
 GEm
 Have no fear for atomic energy,
 CG/BD
Cause none of them can stop the time.
 GEmEm7
How long shall they kill our prophets
 CG/BAm
While we stand aside and look?
 GEm
Ooh, some say it's just a part of it.
 CAm7D
We've got to fulfill the book.


 DGCDG
 Won't you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
 CDEmCDGC
Cause all I ever had,      redemption songs,
 DGCDGCD
redemption songs, redemption songs.
