written and performed by Graham Nash

[Capo 3]

          Bm
One day a friend took me aside
                     Am
and said, "I have to leave you.
           Bm
For buying something from a friend
                     Bm      B7
They say I have done wrong.
       Bm
For protecting the name of a man
                      Em7
they say I'll have to leave you.
           Bm              Bm                Em7    Bm
So now I'm bidding you farewell for much too long.

             Bm                     Em7
And here's a song to sing for every man inside.
          Bm                         Bm     B7
If he can hear you sing it's an open door.
              Bm                          Em7
There's not a rich man there who couldn't pay his way
            Bm                Bm                 Em7    Bm
and buy the freedom, that's a high price for the poor.

Bm(9)          Em7(6)         Bm(9)              Bm       B7
Kids in Texas, smoking grass, ten year sentence, comes to pass.
Bm(9)       Em7(6)        Bm(9)          Bm       B7
Misdemeanor in Ann Arbor, ask the judges why?

        Bm
Another friend said to her kids
                  Am
I'm gonna have to leave you
            Bm
For selling something to the man
              Bm     B7
I guess I did wrong.
               Bm
And although I did the best I could
                  Em7
I'm gonna have to leave you.
           Bm              Bm                Em7    Bm
So now I'm kissing you farewell for much too long.

             Bm                     Em7
And here's a song to sing for every man inside.
          Bm                         Bm     B7
If he can hear you sing it's an open door.
              Bm                          Em7
There's not a rich man there who couldn't pay his way
            Bm                Bm                 Em7    Em7
and buy the freedom, that's a high price for the poor.
