Asa - Jailer

Simple, but beutiful song, with an Am Dm C G progression, perfect for begginers 
and still fun for advanced.

During the verses, if possible, mute the strings between chords.
During the chorus, play all chords normally.


[Intro]

Am-Dm-C-G (x4)


[Verse 1]

Am    Dm
Im in chains
C         G
you’re in chains too
Am      Dm
I wear uniforms,
C        G
you wear uniforms too 
Am      Dm     C        G            Am    Dm    C   G
Im a prisoner, you’re a prisoner too Mr Jailer
Am     Dm
I have fears
C        G
you have fear too 
Am   Dm
I ll die, 
        C              G
but you said would die too 
Am      Dm
Life is beautiful 
C         G             Am  Dm    
don’t you think so too? Mr Jailer 
C  G
Im talking to you


[Chorus]

Am      Dm
jailer
C        G           Am      Dm
   Stop calling me a prisoner 
C      G             Am       Dm              C        G      Am    Dm
   Let he who is without sin- Be the first to cast the stone Mr Jailer
C    G
Mr Jailer


[Verse 2](countinues the  Am Dm C G progression)

Am    Dm
You suppress
C         G
all my strategy
Am      Dm
You oppress 
C     G
every part of me 
Am       Dm           C       G           Am    Dm    C   G
What you don’t know, you’re a victim too Mr Jailer
Am     Dm
You don’t care 
C        G
about my point of view
Am   Dm
If I die 
        C              G
another will work for you 
Am      Dm      C
So you treat me 
       G            Am  Dm
like a modern slave Mr Jailer
C  G
Im talking to you


[Chorus]

Am      Dm
jailer
C        G           Am      Dm
   Stop calling me a prisoner 
C      G             Am       Dm              C        G      Am    Dm
   Let he who is without sin- Be the first to cast the stone Mr Jailer
C    G
Mr Jailer


[Interlude]

Am - Dm - C - G


[Verse 3]

Am     Dm           C
If you walking in a market place
G        
Don’t throw stones
Am   Dm             C
Even if you do you just might hit
G       
One of your own 
Am          Dm         C
Life is not about your policies 
G       
All the time 
Am            Dm             C                    G
So you better rearrange your Philosophies and be good to your fellow man


[Chorus]

Am      Dm
jailer
C        G           Am      Dm
   Stop calling me a prisoner 
C      G             Am       Dm              C        G      Am    Dm
   Let he who is without sin- Be the first to cast the stone Mr Jailer
C      G              Am    Dm
Oh Im talking to you jailer
C        G           Am      Dm
   Stop calling me a prisoner 
C      G             Am       Dm              C        G      Am    Dm
   Let he who is without sin- Be the first to cast the stone Mr Jailer
C    G
Mr Jailer

Excellent, thank you!! Just a comment on the lyrics: In verse 1, "You said would die too" ought to read "You sef will die too". "Sef" is a pidgin word meaning "anyway". Asa freely mixes languages in her songs, which is very Nigerian!

To make the "mute" or "scratch" effect between each chord sound better you can play it with barre chords if you're confortable with it.And a slide from G to Am makes it sound even better.It goes then : G\Am Dm C G|-x-5--5--x--3-| |-x-5--6--5--3-| |-4\5--7--5--4-| |-5\7--7--5--5-| |-5\7--5--3--5-||-3\5--x--x--3-|
