[Intro] (x2)
G C D

[Verse 1]
   G                      Em Em7
Old Pirates, yes, they rob I.
     C        G/B      Am
Sold I to the merchant ships
G                  Em      C         G/B        Am
minutes after they took I   from the bottomless pit.
       G            Em Em7
But my hand was made strong
C      G/B           Am
By the hand of the Almighty.
   G                   Em    C   Am7    D
We forward in this generation triumphantly.

[Chorus]
(D)                G    C       D        G
Won't you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
      C     D        Em   C  D       G      C 
Cause all I ever had,      redemption songs,
  D       G      C D  
redemption songs.

[Verse 2]
(D)   G                           Em Em7
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
            C          G/B          Am
None but ourselves can free our minds.
G                        Em
Have no fear for atomic energy,
              C        G/B         D
Cause none of them can stop the time.
    G                        Em Em7
How long shall they kill our prophets
         C      G/B         Am
While we stand aside and look?
          G              Em
Ooh, some say it's just a part of it.
      C         Am7         D
We've got to fulfill the book.

[Chorus]
(D)                G    C       D        G
Won't you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
      C     D        Em   C  D       G      C 
Cause all I ever had,      redemption songs,
  D       G      C  D       G      C D
redemption songs, redemption songs.

[Instrumental] (x4)

Sold I to the merchant ships
G                  Em      C         G/B        Am
minutes after they took I   from the bottomless pit.
       G            Em Em7
But my hand was made strong
C      G/B           Am
By the hand of the Almighty.
   G                   Em    C   Am7    D
We forward in this generation triumphantly.

All I ever had,      redemption songs,

These songs of freedom,  songs of freedom

This tab is for Redemption Song. I'm not sure why but when it got approved on this website, they took the "Song" off the title. And thanks to whoever rated this 5 stars!

Great tab.

Unfortunately, Johnny Cash and Joe Strummer both did this song in a different key than Bob Marley, and this is the Bob Marley version.

If you put the capo on 3th fret, the key is the same as in the Johnny Cash version
