Shed a Little Light  James Taylor

SHED A LITTLE LIGHT by James Taylor
Chords by Jon Edward Ferner Diesen
[Fdim]Let us turn our [Fm#]thoughts today
To [Bm]Martin [A]Luther [E]King
And recognize that there are [A]ties bet[A/C#]ween us
[D]All [Fdim]men and wo[F#m]men
[E]Living on [A/C#]the eart[D]h
[Bm]Ties of [A]hope and [E]love[Fm7]
[Bm7]Sister and [A]brother[E]hood
That we are [A]bound toget[A/C#]her
In our [D]desire to [Fdim]see the [F#m]world become
A p[E]lace in [A/C#]which our chi[D]ldren
[A]Can grow [Bm]free a[A]nd str[E]ong
We are [A]bound tog[A/C#]ether
By the t[D]ask that s[Fdim]tands bef[F#m]ore us
And the r[E]oad that l[A/C#]ies ahe[D]ad
[A]We are [Bm]bound and [A]we are bo[E]und
[F#m7] [E/G#] There is a [A]feeling [Bbdim]like the [Bm]clenching [A/C#]of a [D]fist[Fdim]
[F#m7] [E/G#] There is a [A]hunger [Bbdim]in the [Bm]center [A/C#]of the [D]chest[Fdim]
[F#m7] [E/G#] There is a [A]passage [Bbdim]through the [Bm]darkness [A/C#]and the [D]mist[Fdim]
[F#m7] [E/G#] And though the [A]body [Bbdim]sleeps the [Bm]heart will [A/C#]never [D6]rest
[E] Shed a little [A]light, oh lord[C#m] [F#m] [Bm-A-E]
So that we can [Bm-A-E]see
Just a little [A]light, oh lord[C#m] [F#m] [Bm-A-E]
Wanna stand it on [Bm-A-E]up
Stand it on [A]up, oh lord[C#m] [F#m] [Bm-A-E]
Wanna walk it on [Bm-A-E]down
A A/C# A/D E 2x
Shed a little light, oh lord
[Em]Can't get no light[D/F#] from the dollar bill[A] [Bm7]
[Em]Don't give me no l[D/F#]ight from a tv screen[A] [Bm7]
[Em]When I open my eye[D/F#]s I wanna drink my fill[C] [F#7]
From the well on[Bm7] the hill[E]
[F#m7]do you know what [D6]I mean?[E]
[E] Shed a little [A]light, oh lord[C#m] [F#m] [Bm-A-E]
So that we can [Bm-A-E]see
Just a little [A]light, oh lord[C#m] [F#m] [Bm-A-E]
Wanna stand it on [Bm-A-E]up
Stand it on [A]up, oh lord[C#m] [F#m] [Bm-A-E]
Wanna walk it on [Bm-A-E]down
A A/C# A/D E 2x
Shed a little light, oh lord
[F#m7] [E/G#] There is a [A]feeling [Bbdim]like the [Bm]clenching [A/C#]of a [D]fist[Fdim]
[F#m7] [E/G#] There is a [A]hunger [Bbdim]in the [Bm]center [A/C#]of the [D]chest[Fdim]
[F#m7] [E/G#] There is a [A]passage [Bbdim]through the [Bm]darkness [A/C#]and the [D]mist[Fdim]
