          I GIVE YOU FREEDOM (THE WHIP-POOR-WILL SONG)
                    THE JOHN MARSHALL FAMILY


NOTE: Since this song is a traditional Christian song that is
      sung by a lot of artists feel free to transpose the chords
      if need be to the key you would like to sing the song in.
      The chords provided are for the artist and version I have 
      tabbed.


INTRO:
C  G  C


VERSE:
C                           Dm
I set the bound’ries of the ocean vast,
 G                                  C      
Carved out the mountains from the distant past,
 C                     Dm
Moulded a man from the miry clay,
  G                           C
Breathed in him life, but he went astray.


CHORUS:
C                      Dm       
I own the cattle on a thousand hills,
G                           C
I write the music for the whippoorwills,
 A                              Dm
Control the planets with their rocks and rills,
 G                       C
But give you freedom to use your own will. 


VERSE: 
C                        Dm
I hold the waters in My mighty hand
  G                            C
Spread out the heavens with a single span,
 C                        Dm
Make all creation tremble at My voice,
 G                         C
But My own friends come to Me by choice.


CHORUS:
C                      Dm       
I own the cattle on a thousand hills,
G                           C
I write the music for the whippoorwills,
 A                              Dm
Control the planets with their rocks and rills,
 G                       C
But give you freedom to use your own will. 


INSTRUMENTAL:
C  Dm   G  C
C  Dm   G  C

C  Dm   G  C
A  Dm   G  C


VERSE:
 C                       Dm
Even the oxen knows the Master’s stall,
 G                             C
And sheep will recognize the shepherd’s call
C                            Dm
I could demand your love – I own you twice,
 G                        C
But only willing love is worth the price!


VERSE:
 C                           Dm
And if you want Me to, I’ll make you whole,
 G                       C
I’ll only do it tho’ if you say so.
 A                           Dm
I’ll never force you, for I love you so,
G                            C
I give you freedom – Is it “yes” or “no”?

Dm          Em  G            C
I give you freedom – Is it “yes” or “no”?
