Free the People  The Dubliners

Capo 5
Free the people:
Laws are made for people, and the law can never scorn, the right of a man to be free
[F]Free the [C]people, [F]
Let them [G]have their [C]say,
[F]Free the [C]people,[F]
Let them [G]see the light of [C]day,[F] [C] [G]
A dis[C]mal dawn was [Em]breaking when they [F]took her man away,
[F]Not knowing [Dm]what was his [G]crime,
[C]Just what he was [Em]guilty of not [F]one of them could say,
[F]But they think of [G]something in [C]time,
He [F]says "[G]goodbye and [Em]remember,
[F]We shall [Dm]over[G]come!"
[C]Comforting her [Em]children softly [F]crying in the night,
[F]She tries very [Dm]hard to exp[G]lain,
"[C]You know you daddy [Em]never did a [F]thing that wasn't right,
[F]So soon he's bound to [G]be home [C]again.
[F]He [G]is a [Em]good man,
And [F]he shall [Dm]overc[G]ome!"
(Spoken) what does it profit him,
The right to be born,
If he suffers the loss of liberty?
Laws were made for people,
And the law can never scorn,
We are the people,
And we shall overcome!
(Singing) [F]we [G]are the [Em]people,
And [F]we shall [Dm]overc[G]ome!
