Verse 1:

C        F      G  F
 Yes, me friend,
         C        F    G  F
We deh A-street A-gain.
C        F          G           F

           C      F    G
Dem say we free a-gain.

    F              C        F  G
The bars could not hold me;
F                    C       F    G
 Force could not con-trol me now.
     F              C     F    G
They try to keep me down, yeah!
    F       C        F     G
But Jah put I around, yeah!

F                  C            F     G
 Yes, I've been ac-cused many a-times,
    F         C         F  G
And wrongly a-bused now.
                    F             C      F  G  F
Oh, but through the powers of the Most-I,
               C             F  G  F
They've got to turn me loose.

Bridge 1:

F                     Am
 Don't try to cold me up, on this bridge now,
F                        Am
 I've got to reach Mount Zion; the highest region.
F                 Am
 So if you a bull-bucka let me tell you this...
G                       G7
 I'm a Duppy Conqueror, conqueror, oh, yeah!

We deh a-street a-gain, oh!
C        F          G           F
 Yes, me friend, me good friend,
           C      F    G   F
Dem say we free a-gain, oh, oh!

Bridge 2:

   F                    Am
So don't try to cold me up, on this bridge now,
F                        Am
 I've got to reach Mount Zion; the highest region.
F                 Am
 So if you a bull-bucka let me tell you this...
G                       G7
 I'm a Duppy Conqueror, conqueror, oh, yeah.

Verse 3:

C        F      G  F
 Yes, me friend,
            C      F    G   F
Them say we free a-gain, oh, oh, yeah!
C        F      G  F
 Yes, me friend,
            C      F    G    F
Them say we free a-gain, oh.

This should be played with a Capo on the first fret or all the chords should be Sharp(#).

Sorry as you said this was from the Burnin' if this was the original version it would be played how I said in the previous comment.
