I Had No Right  Dar Williams

CAPO: 5th Fret
God of the poor man, this is how the day began
[D]Eight co-defendants, I, Daniel [G]Berrigan[Am]
Oh, and [F]only a layman?s [C]batch of Napalm[Am]
We pulled the [F]draft files out
We [Dm]burned them in the [G]parking lot
[F]Better the files than the [C]bodies of children[Em]
I had no [C]right, but for the [Am]love of you_[D]__[G]
I had no [C]right, but for the [Am]love of you_[D]__
[G]Many roads led here, walked with the suffering
[D]Tom in Guatemala, Phillip in New [G]Orle[Am]ans
Oh, it?s a [F]long road from [C]law to justice[Am]
I went to [F]Vietnam
I [Dm]went for peace, they [G]dropped their bombs
[F]Right where my government [C]knew I would be[Em]
I had no [C]right, but for the [Am]love of you_[D]__[G]
I had no [C]right, but for the [Am]love of you_[D]__[Am]
And all my [F]country saw[Am]
Were priests who [F]broke the law
[G]First it was a question, then it was a mission
[D]How to be American, how to be a [G]Christi[Am]an
Oh, if the [F]law is their cross and the [C]cross is burning[Em]
Hey hey hey [C]hey he hey, the [Am]love of you_[D]__[G]
Hey hey hey [C]hey he hey, the [Am]love of you_[D]__
[G]God of the just, I?ll never win a peace prize
[D]Falling like Jesus, now let the [G]jury [Am]rise
Oh, it?s [F]all of us versus [C]all that paper[Am]
They [F]took the only way they [Dm]know, who is on [G]trial today
De[F]liver us unto each [C]other, I pray[Em]
I had no [C]right, but for the [Am]love of you_[D]__[G]
And every [C]trial I stood, I [Am]stood for you_[D]__
[G]Eyes on the trial
8 a.m. arrival
Hands on the bible
