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.

Gm - X5533X
F - X3321X
C - X3201X (transition to X3301X just before going to the C7)
C7 - X3231X

~(intro)~

Gm , F , C , C7 (x2)


~(verse 1)~

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 
        Gm                   F                      C                         C7


~(chorus)~

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


~(verse 2)~

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 
         Gm                    F    C                  C7


~(chorus)~

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
     Gm       F                 C    C7
