These chords can be played in full, but it sounds most like the recording when you 
mute the E strings.

Listen to the recording for the strum pattern and the pull offs, hammer ons and 
slides done during chord transitions.

[Intro]

Gm  F  C  C7 (x2)


[Verse 1]

               Gm        F                   C    C7
When you're so long gone, you can't help yourself 
               Gm        F                  C    C7
When you're so dead wrong, let alone no one else
         Gm                          F           C                      C7        
Well the children still dying in the street, And babies still living with disease
        Gm                   F                      C                         C7    
And the cops got guns, and the po folk got sons who work for Mr. Franklin every week 
        

[Chorus]

           Gm                  F         C            C7
And if you've come looking for hard times, hard times ain't hard to find
           Gm            F       C                C7
Because we're given that lifeline, only once in a lifetime
            Gm    F                 C    C7
Baby we was born, maybe we were born 
      Gm      F                         C    C7       
To be sure to endure when the storm comes 
      

[Verse 2]

    Gm                F                  C                 C7
Got them sad eyes, got cat eyes, got the angels tired from saving his life 
              Gm                 F   C                  C7
And you could bet to contain yourself before you end up killed 
    Gm                   F                   C                       C7             
Get his bare feet touchin her bare feet, the air breathes sweet near mountains peak 
         Gm                    F    C                  C7
And I forgot what the wise man said about that ancient thread 
         

[Chorus]

           Gm                  F         C            C7
And if you've come looking for hard times, hard times ain't hard to find
           Gm            F       C                C7
Because we're given that lifeline, only once in a lifetime
            Gm    F                 C    C7
Baby we was born, maybe we were born 
      Gm      F                         C    C7      
To be sure to endure when the storm comes 
            Gm    F                 C    C7
Baby we was born, maybe we were born 
     Gm       F                 C    C7      
To rejoice, rejoice when it succumbs
     

[Outro]

Gm  F  C  C7 (x6)
