I learned to play this song a few years ago now, and looking at the other versions on the web
to compare they are close but no cigar!

This song is very fun to play and sounds excellent on an acoustic! It sounds much better to
play the riff but I've written out the chords and timings anyway!

(Please rate if you can!)

Main riff:
       Dsus4          Asus4
   D        Dsus2 A       Asus2
E|-2-2—2—3—2—0------------------|
B|—3-----------3--2-2-2-3-2-0---|
G|-2--------------2-----------2-|   
D|-0---0----------2-------------|
A|----------------0---0---------|
E|------------------------------|

...Intro...
Main riff (X4)

...Verse 1...
D    Dsus4 Dsus2 A
Where are you now?
    Asus4 Asus2 D          Dsus2 A Asus4 Asus2
Broken up or still around?
Asus2 F#m                         G
  The C.I.A says you're a guilty man
                                  D Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 Asus2
Will we see the likes of you again?

...Verse 2...
            D        Dsus4  Dsus2   A
Can anyone make a difference anymore?
         Asus4 Asus2 D        Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4
Can anyone write a protest song?
Asus2 F#m            G
Pinky lefty revolutionary
                     D Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 Asus2
Burnt at the stake for...

Asus2

...Chorus...
  G         A       D            Em
A voice so pure - a vision so clear
     F#m                       G
I've gotta learn to live like you
                   A 
Learn to sing like you

...Verse 3...
        D     Dsus4 Dsus2 A
Went to Cuba to meet Castro
         Asus4  Asus2 D    Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 
Never got past sleepy Moscow
Asus2   F#m                 G
A giant man with a heavenly voice
                         D Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 
Mk Ultra turned you paranoid

...Verse 4...
Asus2      D Dsus4 Dsus2 A 
No passport 'til      1958
Asus4    Asus2    D            Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 
Mccarthy poisoned through with hate
Asus2   F#m               G
Liberty lost still buried today
                           D Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 Asus2
Beneath the lie of the U.S.A.

A Asus4 Asus2

...Chorus...
  G         A       D            Em
A voice so pure - a vision so clear
     F#m                       G
I've gotta learn to live like you
                   A 
Learn to sing like you

...Bridge...
D                              A           
Now let the Freedom Train come zooming down the track
D                                         A
Gleaming in the sunlight for white and black
                                                  D
Not stopping at no stations marked colored nor white
                             A
Just stopping in the fields in the broad daylight
         D
Stopping in the country in the wide open air
A
Where there never was a Jim Crow sign nowhere
D                                     A
And no lilly-white committees, politicians of note
                   D             Dsus4         Dsus2 
Nor poll tax layer through which colored can't vote
                   A     Asus4    Asus2
And there won't be no kinda color lines
A          Asus4           Asus2
The Freedom Train will be yours and mine


...Chorus...
  G         A       D            Em
A voice so pure - a vision so clear
     F#m                       G
I've gotta learn to live like you
                   A 
Learn to sing like you

...Coda...
D Dsus4 Dsus2 A Asus4 Asus2 (X2)

D             Dsus4    Dsus2 A                Asus4     Asus2
Sing it loud, sing it proud, I will be heard, I will be found
D             Dsus4    Dsus2 A                Asus4     Asus2
Sing it loud, sing it proud, I will be heard, I will be found
