Intro Riff

Verse 2:
Got myself arrested, Wound me up in jail.

CHORUS

Saw the people standin' thousand years in chains.
Somebody said it's diff'rent now, look, it's just the same.
Pharaohs spin the message, round and round the truth.
They could have saved a million people, How can I tell you?

CHORUS
CHORUS

There Are a couple of weird rhythms in the song, just listen to it a couple of times and 
play around with your strumming patter and you'll get it.
