The Road To Freedom  Chris de Burgh

Song Title: The Road To Freedom
Verse 1
[Dm]I feel the wind blowing through my doorway,
it's telling me that the summer's gone,
and the wint[Bb]er waits in sha[Dm]dow, w[C]aiting with the sto[Dm]rm.
Verse 2
[Dm]I am old and my bones are weary,
and my son, he is all I have,
but he has [Bb]gone to fight for [Dm]freedom, [C]leaving with my he[Dm]art.
[C]All my life I have [F]loved this land, [Bb]worked it with my [A]hands,
but can this [Bb]freedom send the [F]rain when [C]seed is in the g[Dm]round ?
Can this fr[Bb]eedom heal the [F]pain and [Bb]bring my boy [A]back to me again?
[Dm]Oh oh oh, oh oh[Bb] oh, oh oh [C]oh, [-] [A] oh, [Dm]oh. (2x)[Dm]
Verse 3
[Dm]I watched them sail from the rocks below me,
'twas like the sea in its endless rage,
[Bb]many fall on the r[C]oad to fr[Dm]eedom, [C]dying on the sto[Dm]nes.
A[C]ll my life I have [F]loved this land, w[Bb]orked it with my [A]hands,
but can your [Bb]freedom send the [F]rain when [C]seed is in the [Dm]ground ?
Can your fr[Bb]eedom heal the [F]pain and br[Bb]ing my boy b[A]ack to me again?
Oh oh [Dm]oh, oh oh [Bb]oh, oh oh [C]oh, [-] [A] oh, [Dm]oh.
Oh oh [Dm]oh, oh oh [Bb]oh, oh oh [C]oh, [-] [A] oh, [Bb]oh. - - - Oh [Dm]oh.
Verse 4
[Dm]Late last night, as the world was sleeping,
I dreamed my boy, he was calling out,
'Cos he was [Bb]lost in some dark [Dm]forest,
and [C]snow was [A]falling [Bb]down, [C]falling on the [Dm]ground.
Oh oh [Dm]oh, oh oh [Bb]oh, oh oh [C]oh, [-] [A] oh, [Dm]oh.
