Rockin' In The Free World – Neil Young

Tabbed by Marco Alemão
Guitar is tuned half step down
The signs (XYZW) are used to mark the parts where it is played equal to the tab parts 
to their pairs

If you’re playing alone, sounds better to change those (x)’s for (2)’s
(Repeat 4 times after start singing then 4 more times wile singing)

There are colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes

Release the strings after itch chord picking
(repeat 4 times wile singing)


But there's a warnin' sign
on the road ahead
There's a lot of people sayin'
we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan,
but I am to them
So I try to forget it,
any way I can.

(X)
I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
(Y)
Now she puts the kid away,
and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life,
and what she's done to it
There's one more kid
that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool.

(Z)
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world

(Most of the tone changes are made with the leverage but I won’t explain it by tab.
When I use the [bb] is to bend then over bend)

(X)
We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
(Y)
We got department stores
and toilet paper
Got styrofoam boxes
for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people,
says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn,
got roads to drive.

(Z)
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
