Redemption Day  Johnny Cash

Song: Redemption Day
Album: American Recordings VI: Ain't No Grave
***CAPO 1***
INTRO: Am
[Am]I've wept for those who suffer long
[Am]But how I weep for those who've gone
[Am]In rooms of grief and questioned wrong
[Am]But keep on [D]killing[Am]
[Am]It's in the soul to feel such things
[Am]But weak to watch without speaking
[Am]Oh, what mercy sadness brings
[Am]If God be [D]willing[Am]
CHORUS:
[Am]There is a [C]train that's heading straight
[C]To Heaven's [Am]gate,[F] to Heaven's [C]gate
[C]And on the way child and man
[C]And woman [Am]wait[F], watch and [D]wait
[D]For redemption [Am]day
(Verses same as before)
Fire rages in the streets
And swallows everything it meets
It's just an image often seen
On television
Come leaders, come ye men of great
Let us hear you pontificate
Your many virtues laid to waste
And we aren't listening
(Repeat Chorus)
BRIDGE:
[D]What do you [C]have for us today[F]
[D]Throw us a [C]bone but save the [Am]plate
[D]On why we [C]waited till so lat[F]e
[F]Was there no oil to excav[D]ate
[D]No riches in trade for the [F]fate
[F]Of every person who died in [D]hate
[D]Throw us a bone, you men of [Am]great
(Repeat Chorus)
[D]It's buried [C]in the country[F]side
[D]Exploding [C]in the shells at [Am]night
[D]It's every[C]where a baby [F]cries
[F]Freedom...[D]...[F]Freedom...[D]...[Am]Freedom
