FREEDOM NOW- Tracy Chapman

G(2) G6+9 G(2) G6 G G/C G    G(2) G6+9 G(2) G6 G G/C G

       G(2)         G6+9          G(2)      G6   G G/C             G
They throwed him in jail and they kept him there hoping soon he'd die
         G(2)      G6+9        G(2)    G6     G G/C                G
That his body and spirit would waste away and soon after that his mind
C                        G   C                            G
But every day is born a fool, one who thinks that he can rule
C                        G   C                          D
One who says tomorrow's mine, one who wakes one day to find
     G(2)        G6+9        G(2)    G6        G G/C          G
The prison doors open, the shackles broken and chaos in the street

CHORUS #1:
                       F    D           G  G/C G
Everybody sing we're free, free, free, free
                       F    D           G  G/C G
Everybody sing we're free, free, free, free
                       F    D           G  G/C G
Everybody sing we're free, free, free, free

They throwed him in jail and they kept him there hoping his memory'd die
That the people forget how he once led and fought for justice in their lives
But every day is born a man who hates what he can't understand
Who thinks the answer is to kill, who thinks his actions are God's will

CHORUS #2:
And he thinks he's free, free, free, free
Yes he thinks he's free, free, free, free
Oh he thinks he's free, free, free, free

BRIDGE:
C                      G
Soon must come the day oh when the righteous have their way
Em                      B
Unjustly tried are free oh and people live in peace I say
C                     G
Give the man release, oh go on and set your conscience free
Em                         B                            C  G  C G
Right the wrongs you made, oh even a fool can have his day

CHORUS #3:
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free    C  G  C  G

BRIDGE #2:
 C                         G
Free our bodies, free our minds, free our hearts
Em                 B
Freedom for everyone, and freedom now
C  G               Em           B            C    G  C  G
       Oh freedom now, freedom now, freedom now

CHORUS #3:
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free
Let us all be free, free, free, free

               G(2) G6+9 G(2) G6 G G/C G               G(2) G6+9 G(2) G6 G G/C G
Let us all be free                       Let us all be free
