[Valjean]
C#                   Bbm
Freedom is mine, the earth is still
F#                 Gm
I feel the wind, I breathe again
        D           C
And the sky clears, the world is waking
F
Drink from the pool, how clean the taste
Dm         G                C
Never forget the years, the waste
            Bb    A                Dm
Nor forgive them, for what they've done
Gm                   F
They are the guilty, everyone

The day begins

And now let's see
Em        Gm
What this new world
        C   F
Will do for me.

[Employer]
G
You'll have to go

I'll pay you off for the day

Collect your bits and pieces there
               E
And be on your way.

[Valjean]
F
You've given me half

What the other men get

This handful of tin

Wouldn't buy my sweat.

[Employer]
D
You broke the law

It's there for people to see

Why should you get the same
                   B
As honest men like me?

[Valjean]
Em
And now I know how freedom feels

The jailer always at your heels
          C
It is the law
Am
This piece of paper in my hand
                                    F
That makes me cursed throughout the land

It is the law
       Em
Like a cur
  Dm       Em
I walk the street
    F                  B
The dirt beneath their feet.

[Bishop]
Am
Come  in, sir, for you are weary,
Am                        C
And the night is cold out there.
C                         Dm
Though our lives are very humble,
        E                Am
What we have, we have to share.

Am
There is wine here to revive you.
Am                         C
There is bread to make you strong.
C                          Dm
There's a bed to rest till morning.
          E                  C#m
Rest from pain and rest from wrong.

[Valjean]
C#m
He let me eat my fill, I had the lion's share.
C#m/E
The silver in my hand cost twice what I had earned
F#m
In all those nineteen years, that lifetime of despair.
G#                 Dm
And yet he trusted me.

Dm
The old fool trusted me, he'd done his bit of good.
Dm/F
I played the grateful serf and thanked him, like I should.
Gm
But when the house was still, I got up in the night,
A                       Bb     Bb/D
Took the silver took my flight!

High Tempo

[Instrumental]
Am/D Bdim/D Ab/D Bb/D C/D Db/D Eb/D F/D
Em Em/D E/C# Esus2/C Bsus4 B Em

[Constables]
Em
Tell his reverence your story
       Em/D
Let us see if he's impressed.
         Em/C#
You were lodging here last night
             Bsus4/C B        Em
You were the honest  bishop's guest.

Em
And then, out of Christian goodness,
        Em/D
When he learned about your plight,
        Em/C#          Bsus4/C         B                        Em
You maintain he made a present of this silver. [BISHOP] That is right.

N.C.
       D                  G
But my friend you left so early,
       F                      C
surely something slipped your mind.
       D                G
You forgot I gave these also,
          F              B
would you leave the best behind?

Em
So Messieurs, you may release him,
         Em/D
For this man has spoken true.
     Em/C#             Em/C
I commend you for your duty,
          Bsus4/B  B       E
Now God's blessing go with you

Am
But remember this, my brother.

Am                      C
See in this some higher plan.
C                          Dm
You must use this precious silver
     E              Am
To become an honest man.

Am
By the witness of the martyrs,
Am                     C
By the Passion and the Blood.
C                         Dm
God had raised you out of darkness,
       E                    A
I have bought your soul for God.
