Hi All, this is a great song and credit to the person that put it up. 
I've made a few additions/changes to capture Christy's beat on this. 
It's just a half or quarter bar on the second cord on each line but if you listen 
to the song you'll pick it up.


(1)      G                    C      G
      As they went home on an Easter Road
          C                   F      G
     On a silent night trying not to show
     C                  F        G
     Who goes where and who goes when
              F                            C    G
     Thinking some day soon they'll get it back again

(2)           G                    C       F
     From the ghetto in Capetown to dig the gold
     C               F        G
     Little Boy Blue can't be sold
     C                    F       G
     Under tin roof and a plastic wall
              F                            C        G
     Thinking some day soon we re going to leave it all

(chorus)     C                      G         F
     And the Renegades sing all the renegades songs
             Am                         F     G    
     And the ones who know hope they're doing wrong
         F
     The blacks and the coloureds play
              G 
     The Biko Drum
         F
     The blacks and the coloureds play
         G    Am 
     The Biko Drum
     F                  G  
     Listen to the Biko Drum

(3)  G                   C         G
     Transvaal kids on a Transvaal day
     C                     F        G
     Little by little they show the way
          C                  F     G
     To a city of dreams and solid ground
              F                         C    G
     Thinking some day soon we're gonna come around


(4)  G                   C      G
     Steve's living in a prison cell
     C                                   F     G
     All the friends that know hope he's doing well
          C                       F    G
     Down here they listen to the Biko Drum
          F                       C        G
     Down here they listen to the songs he sung

(chorus)     C                      G         F
     And the Renegades sing all the renegades songs

     And the ones who know hope they're doing wrong

              G 
     The Biko Drum
         F

     Nelson listen to the people sing
     C                  F        G
     Nelson Mandela the people's king
     C                      F           G
     Twenty-five years in a white man's jail
     F                             C         G
     Twenty-five years we couldn't make him say

(chorus)     C                      G         F
     And the Renegades sing all the renegades songs
