If I Were Free  Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros
C G Am F C G Am x2
[C]If [G]I [Am]were [F]free
I would run into battles with [Am]flowers and hugs
And bow at the boots of our well-[G]oiled thugs
Yes, if I were [Am]free
[C]If [G]it [Am]were [F]me
I would yell out I love you to [Am]all I passed
I would disrobe and disco and rip [G]off my mask
Yes, if I were [C]free I'd be the [G]U that crossed the [Am]I to simply be
[G]Minding our reflections at the [F]bottom of the [C]sea
What did you [G]see?
[C]I saw that [G]you and I [Am]forever have been free
The [G]light became too heavy and I [F]fell into a [C]dream
What did you [E7]dream?
[C] [G] [Am] [F] [C] [Am] [C] [Am] [F] [G] [Am]  
[C]I [G]dreamed [Am]a [F]wind that would sweep
Every castle made [Am]of sand
Out across the old far h[G]oly land
Oh, if this were [Am]free
[C]If [G]this [Am]were [F]free
We'd be free of the terror of [Am]the graves
And fear masquerading as [G]the brave
Oh, if this were [C]free[G] [Am]
[C] [G] [Am]  
[C]I woke [G]upon a pig of [Am]red, white and blue
The [G]circus got too heavy so we [F]fell into the [C]zoo
What did you [G]feel?
[C]I felt the [G]fear that every [Am]queer does in his head
[G]First thing to starting over, I made [F]sure I was [C]dead
What do you d[G]ream?
[F] [Am] [G] [E7] [Am] [C] [E7]  
[C]Swimming with [G]ancients, laughing, [Am]tired of getting lost
We [G]took our left, remember, when we [F]leaned upon the [C]cross
What did you [G]see?
[C]I saw that [G]you and I [Am]forever have been free
The [G]light became too heavy and we [F]fell into a [C]dream
[C] [G] [Am]
