			     “That’s freedom” by John Farnham.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim Norton – Australia.
Email: t_n46@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard EADGBE

This is the album version from “Chain Reaction” 1990, although I have also tabbed out 
live solo performed by Jack Jones (Irwin Thomas) from the 1990 Melbourne “Chain reaction” 
(on DVD). The background power chords are noted at the bottom of the page.
Great song. Good luck and enjoy!

Intro: E6*

Verse 1a:
E6                                         E6/C#*
I don’t know what you want from me or what you think love ought to be
E6	                                       E6/C#
I want something that’s open and strong as the country this road’s moving on from the

Verse 1b
E6                              E6/C#
Mountain to the valley from the ocean to the alley from the
E6                        E6/C#
highway to the river one emotion to deliver

Pre-chorus:
    Asus2*        Bsus2*       Asus2       Bsus2
One heart,    one way,     one love,    to share but not to chain (that’s freedom)

Chorus:
E                  F#m*                Bsus2               Asus2
It’s a song of the heart a race in the wind a light in the dark (that’s freedom)
E                F#m                Bsus2             Asus2
It’s a reason to live and after the rain rekindle the spark let freedom ring.


Fill: E6


Verse 2:
E6                                     E6/C#
I don’t know why it takes so long to remember what the world’s doing wrong
E6                                 E6/C#
Never wanted to shove my plan on another who can’t understand

Pre-chorus 2:
Asus2                                  Bsus2
All I want is a fast lane to where the road across this plain won’t take you
Asus2                              Bsus2
I want something you understand to make us stand proud as nothing else can (that’s freedom)

Chorus:
E                  F#m                 Bsus2               Asus2
It’s a song of the heart a race in the wind a light in the dark (that’s freedom)
E                F#m                Bsus2             Asus2
It’s a reason to live and after the rain rekindle the spark (that’s freedom)
E                 F#m                 Bsus2                Asus2
It’s a measure of trust when love is alive it’s tender and tough (that’s freedom)
E                 F#m               Bsus2             Asus2
It’s all love is about it’s opening up and letting it out let freedom ring

What do you mean by the E6? If the 6 should stay for the sixth then I can see no sixth in your tabbing. That's either an E5 to me.
