{Intro:} Em  A  D  -  A  Em 
          D                     A             D
I’ve been livin’ here since the day I was conceived
   A               Em                     D
My daddy lived his whole life here b’fore me
   D                A                D
My grandpa came and settled this here lot
   Em                   A             D
He told me so back when I was still a tot

{Bridge:} 
          Em                               A
 Now they say we live in freedom, have the right to speak and choose
         Em                                         C               D
 But the only time you’re really free is when they take it all from you

{Chorus:}
          Em             A              D
 There’re takin’ all my land out from under me
        Em            A                  D
 But it ain’t for the betterment of society
      G                 C            D          Em
 Some business men who paid off the right jury & judge
         G                 D       A         D
 Made it legal for them to take my land from me

          D                A                D
I’ve been livin’ my simple life for oh so long now
     A              Em                    D
I’ve grown old and now my row is tough to hoe
  D              A             D
I sell my boiled peanuts on my lot just off the road
          Em                   A               Em     A      D
But you’d better hurry down my friends they’re comin’ for my soul

         D                     A             D
Now I’ve got nowhere to go and rest my tired bones
    A                         Em                 D
And the cash they put into my hands was really an insult
            D              A           D
And while I spend my final days livin’ in my poverty
    Em              A       Em       A         D
The law is on their side to steal my land from me

          Em                               A
 Now they say we live in freedom, have the right to speak and choose
         Em                                         C               D
 But the only time you’re really free is when they take it all from you


{Solo:}
      Em     A      D
      Em     A      D
      G      C      D      Em
      G      D      A      D

         D               A                   D
When the founding fathers wrote the words of this land
     A                      Em               D
They said it was by, for and of the people’s hand 
    D                     A                    D
Somewhere someone must’ve given those words a twitch
          Em              A                Em     A        D
What they really meant to say: it’s of and by and for the rich!

          Em             A                  D
 There’re takin’ all my land out from under me
     Em               A                  D
 But it ain’t for the betterment of society
      G                 C            D          Em
 Some business men who paid off the right jury & judge
         G                 D       A         D
 Made it legal for them to take my land from me


          D                     A            D
I’ve been livin’ here since the day I was conceived
      A              Em                        D
Feels like I sold my land for a pocket full of beads
   D                      A            D
I sympathize with all you natives because now I see
        Em                   A                   D
I can’t stop them – there’re takin’ my land from me
        Em                   A                              
I can’t stop them – there’re takin’ my land from me {end quick a cappella}
