"Philadelphia Freedom" (Capo: 3rd. fret)

____Intro:

 G  C  Bb  Am  G (Repeat)

____Verse: 1

G
 I used to be a rolling stone, you know 
 If the cause was right 
         A7            Gm6/Bb   Am7    G  D7sus
 I'd leave to find the answer on the road 
   G
 I used to be a heart beating for someone 
 But the times have changed 
A7                   Gm6/Bb  Am7       G
 The less I say the more my work gets done 

____Chorus:
 
          C                     Csus4  C       G  
 'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom 
          C               Csus4      C         G  
 From the day that I was born I've waved the flag 
 F                            E7               Am7
 Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man 
 F7            E7                 Eb         C
 Yeah, gave me peace of mind my daddy never had 
 G                               C    G/B
 Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you 
           Am7               G/B        A7/C#       D7  B7sus  B7
 Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind 
Em              Am7
 Shine a light, shine a light 
G/B                       F/C        C
 Shine a light, won't you shine a light 
 Am7  G/B C  C#dim  D7       C  Bm7 Am7             G
 Phi__la__delphia freedom, I lo_o___ove you, yes I do 

____Intro:

 G  C  Bb  Am  G (Repeat)

____Verse: 2

G
 If you choose to you can live your life alone 
 Some people choose the city 
(Some people choose the city)
      A7                Gm6/Bb    Am7     G
 Some others choose the good old family home 
(Some others choose the good old family home)
 G
 I like living easy without family ties (living easy)
                                   A7
 Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me 
 Gm6/Bb    Am7       G
 Right between the eyes

____Chorus:
 
          C                     Csus4  C       G

 From the day that I was born I've waved the flag 
 F                            E7               Am7
 Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man 
 F7             E7                 Eb         C
 Mm-mm, gave me peace of mind my daddy never had

Whoops -- I didn't even see you were capo'ing the third fret when I wrote that.

This is a great tab. 100% accurate, as I can see.

Just a note for myself and others: Gm6/Bb (Bbm6/Eb in the original key) is played like this: G string = 8th fret; B string = 8th fret; High E string= 9th fret.
You may consider it 5th and 6th fret if you play with capo.

A7/C# (C7/E) is played like this: A string = 7th fret; G string = 9th fret; B string = 8th fret; E string = 8th fret.
You may consider it 4th, 6th, 5th and 5th fret if you play with capo

One thing I find is that in the verse, after the Am7 (Cm7) back to G (Bb), it goes to G6 (Bb6) really quick. Listen for it.
