   [nc]      G
   I left my home still as a child 
              G
   I walked a thousand soary miles
                  C/G                      G
   To wait for my father, to gather up his truth


              G
   He said my boy you've got to run 
                  G
   Don’t wait for me, don’t wait for mum 
              C/G                               G
   We’ll come get you, when it’s safe for us to move


        C/G
   So I waited many years, 
                 Em
   held back the pain behind my tears
          C/G                             G
   For my father, to come find me like he said

 
               C/G
   And in that time I was alone, 
           Em        
   so many years without my home
          C/G                            G
   I made brothers of a different kind instead


   Instrumental break:
   G    C/G   G  


              G
   And in the time I didn't know,
            G
   just how hard the wind could blow
             C/G                                 G
   Towards disaster, and the things that I would see


     G
   I never found my father,
     G
   I never found my mother
                C/G                        G
   Even would I know in my lifetime I will be


     C/G
   A hero into the masses,
            Em
   to those born without chances
             C/G                     G                
   There’s a freedom that everyone deserves


                  C/G
   I know there’s greed and there’s corruption
             Em 
   I’ve seen death and mass destruction
           C/G                              G
   But I’m telling you, and I hope that I'm heard


              G
   And I will not be commanded,
              C/G
   And I will not be controlled
              Em                   C/G
   And I will not let my future go on, 
                          G
   without the help of my soul


              G
   And I will not be commanded,
              C/G
   And I will not be controlled
              Em                   C/G
   And I will not let my future go on, 
                          G
   without the help of my soul



              G
   And I will not be commanded,
              C/G
   And I will not be controlled
              Em                   C/G
   And I will not let my future go on, 
                          G
   without the help of my soul



          G
   I will not be commanded,
          C/G
   I will not be controlled
              Em                   C/G
   And I will not let my future go on, 
                          G
   without the help of my soul

Correct lyrics are "a thousand sorry miles", "To wait for my father, to gather up his tools" & "A hero to the masses"

Great tab. I tried it with a capo on the 2nd fret and thought it was a bit closer to the original pitch.
