REDEMPTION DAY by SHERYL CROW from her 2nd album
Chords by: Ted Saxlid.I'm not 100% sure on all the chords but
it sounds pretty good to me.
Capo on 1st fret (chords relative to the capo)
The tab for the Am chord throughout the song goes something like this:

Riff 1:

Verse 1:
[Am]I've wept for those who suffer long
But how I weep for those who've gone
Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
But keep on killing[Dsus4]
Verse 2:
[Am]It's in the soul to feel such things
But weak to watch without speaking
Oh what mercy sadness brings
If God be willing[Dsus4] (Riff [Am]1)
[Am/B]There is a [C]train that's heading straight
[C/B]To heaven's gate,[Am] to heaven[Am/B]'s gate[C]
[C/B]And on the way,[C] child and man
[C/B]And woman wait, w[Am]atch a[Am/B]nd wait[D]
For redemption day[Am]
Verse 3:
[Am]The fire rages in the streets
And swallows everything it meets
It's just an image often seen
On television[Dsus4]
Verse 4:
[Am]Come leaders, come you men of great
Let us hear you pontificate
Your many virtues laid to waste
Dsus4 Riff 1
And we aren't listening
Verse 5: (Different)
[Am]What do you have f[Dsus4]or us today[C] [Am]
[Am]Throw us a bone [Dsus4]but saw the plate[C] [Am]
[Am]Oh why we waited[Dsus4] til so late[C] [Am]
[Am]Was there no oil to excavate[Dsus4]
No riches in trade for the fate
Of every person who died in hate
Throw us a bone, you men of great[C] [Am]
[Am/B]There is a [C]train that's heading straight
[C/B]To heaven's gate,[Am] to h[Am/B]eaven's gate[C]
[C/B]And on the way,[C] child and man
[C/B]And woman wait, w[Am]atch a[C]nd wait[Dsus4]
Am Riff 1
For redemption day
Verse 6:
[Am]It's buried in[C] the countryside[Dsus4] [Am]
[Am]Exploding in t[C]he shells of night[Dsus4]
[Am]It's everywhere a baby cries
[Dsus4]Freedom, fr[Am]eedom, freed[Dsus4]om, freedom[Am]
Ends on Am
