Sitting in Limbo  Jimmy Cliff


S[E]itting here in limbo, but I know it won't be long
S[A]itting here in limbo, like a bird without a so[E]ng
Well, they're pu[B]tting up resistance
But I k[A]now that my fa[B]ith will lead me [E]on
Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo, have some time to search my soul
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on
I don't kn[A]ow where life will l[E]ead me
But I k[A]now where I've be[E]en
I can't s[A]ay what life will s[E]how me
But I k[A]now what I've se[E]en
Tried my h[B]and at love and f[C#m]riendship
But all t[B]hat is past and [C#m]gone
[A]This little boy is moving [B]on
Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo, knowing that I have to go
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
I can't say where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is past and gone
This little boy is moving on
[E]Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo, etc...
NOTE: The song sounds better if you add these variations to E:
0 2 2 1 0 4 and 0 2 2 1 0 2 and then the usual 0 2 2 1 0 0
So, while strumming you can move down the E string with your pinkie.
Listen to the record to see what I mean.
(from The Harder They Come soundtrack, 1972)
