Redemption Song  Bob Marley

Here's a slightly different take...

Might be useful to know this:
Cmaj9/B x20010






Old [G]Pirates, yes, they [Em]rob I.
[C]Sold I to the [Cmaj9/B]merchant [Am]ships
[G]minutes after they [Em]took I  
[C]from the [Cmaj9/B]bottomless [Am]pit.
[G]But my hand was [Em]made strong
[C]By the [Cmaj9/B]hand of the Al[Am]mighty.
We [G]forward in this gene[Em]ration

[D]Won't you help to s[G]ing  
[C]these [D]songs of [G]freedom?
Cause [C]all I [D]ever had[Em]    
[C]re[D]demption[G] songs
[C]re[D]demption[G] songs.[C]  [D]

[D]Emanci[G]pate yourselves from mental [Em]slavery,
None but our[C]selves can [Cmaj9/B]free our mind[Am]s.
[G]Have no fear for atomic e[Em]nergy,
Cause [C]none of them can [Cmaj9/B]stop the tim[D]e.
How [G]long shall they kill our [Em]prophets
While we [C]stand a[Cmaj9/B]side and loo[Am]k?
Ooh, some [G]say it's just a[Em] part of it.
We've [C]got to ful[Cmaj9/B]fill the boo[D]k.
(repeat chorus)

(bridge) Em C D (4x)

(repeat 2nd verse & chorus)
[C]All I [D]ever had,[Em]     [C] re[D]demption[Em] songs
[C]These [D]songs of [G]freedom[C]  
[D]songs of [G]freedom[C]

[Cmaj9/B]  [Am]  [D7]
