INDEPENDENCE DAY (Gretchen Peters)

(Actually in A; capo 2.)
[G](int[G]ro)[C] [C] [G] [G] [C] [C]
Well she se[G]emed all r[G]ight by d[C]awn's early l[C]ight
Though she [G]looked a little [G]worried and w[C]eak[C]
She [G]tried to pret[G]end he wasn't [C]drinking ag[G]ain
But [D]Daddy'd left the [D]proof on her ch[D]eek[D] [-] [C]
[G]I was only [G]eight years o[C]ld that s[C]ummer
And I a[G]lways seemed to [G]be in the w[C]ay[C]
So I [Em]took myself d[Em]own to the f[C]air in t[G]own
O[D]n Inde[D]pendence D[G]ay[G] [C] [C] [G] [G] [C] [C]
Well, word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was a dangerous man
But Mama was proud and she stood her ground
She knew she was on the losing end
Some folks whispered, some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
And when time ran out, there was no one about
D D G G G (stop)
On Independence Day
Let freedom r[D]ing,[D] [D] let the [D]white dove[Em] sing[Em] [Em] [Em]
Let the wh[C]ole world kn[C]ow that tod[G]ay is a [G]day of[D] reckon[D]ing[D] [D]
Let the weak be [Em7]strong,[Em7] [Em7] let the r[Em7]ight be wr[C]ong[C]
C C G G D (stop)
Roll that stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence D[G]ay[G] [C] [C] [G] [G] [C] [C]
Well, she lit up the sky that Fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames and they took down some names
And sent me to the county home
Now I ain't saying it's right or it's wrong
But maybe it's the only way
Talk about your revolution
It's Independence Day
Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll that stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence D[G]ay, [G] [C] roll that [C]stone aw[G]ay[G]
C C G G C C G.
It's Independence Day
