    C               Am7
We refuse to be
         C          Am7
What you wanted us to be;
Dm7
We are what we are:
Dm7         C              G       C            G
That's the way (way) it's going to be. If you don't know!
C           Am7
You can't educate I

Dm7    G7
Rebel, rebel!
                C                         Am7
Yes, we've been trodding on the winepress much too long:
Dm7    G7
Rebel, rebel!

Tell the children the truth;
C                   Am7
Tell the children the truth;
D                     G
Tell the children the truth right now!
G                    G
Come on and tell the children the truth;

Tell the children the truth;
G                    G
Tell the children the truth;

[Chorus]
G                          C                        Am7
'Cause - 'cause we've been trodding on ya winepress much too long:
Dm7    G7
Rebel, rebel!
               C                 Am7
And we've been taken for granted much too long:
Dm7    G7
Rebel, rebel now!

[Bridge]
(Trodding on the winepress) Trodding on the winepress (rebel):
got to rebel, y'all (rebel)!
We've been trodding on the winepress much too long - ye-e-ah! (rebel)
Yea-e-ah! (rebel) Yeah! Yeah!
From the very day we left the shores (trodding on the winepress)
Of our Father's land (rebel),
We've been trampled on (rebel),
Oh now! (we've been oppressed, yeah!) Lord, Lord, go to ... 

[Outro]
[*Sleeve notes continue:
Now we know everything we got to rebel
Somebody got to pay for the work
We've done, rebel.]

Good job for the most part. But the Bridge doesn't feel perfect.

one suggestion:

D G
Tell the children the truth right now!

It sounds better like this

Dm7 G7
Tell the children the truth right now!
