Capo 1

[Verse]
E
I ain't cutting my hair till the good lord comes.
E                                                
I ain't cutting my hair till the good lord comes, 
A
arrive upon the mountain just to see what we have done,
E                          B7                       E
I ain't cutting my hair, cutting till the good lord comes.
I ain't open my eyes till we all walk free.
I ain't open my eyes till we all walk free, 
till the color of our skin it don't mean a damn thing.
I ain't open my eyes, open till we all walk free.
I ain't pickin' up a paper till the wild wind blows. 
I ain't pickin up a paper till the wild wind blows, 
till we should say what we should say, till we know what we should know.
I ain't pickin up a paper, pickin till the wild wind blows.

[Chorus]
E                    A
Cuz it's a coal, it's a coal war.
Cuz it's a coal, it's a coal war.

[Verse]
I ain't cutting my hair till the good lord comes, 
arrive upon the mountain just to see what we have done,
I ain't cutting my hair, cutting till the good lord comes.
I ain't cutting my hair till the good lord comes, 
arrive upon the mountain just to see what we have done,
I ain't cutting my hair, cutting till the good lord comes.

[Interlude]
G                    A                    E
If we don't walk free with hand in heart, it's time.
If we cannot see all we destroy, we're blind.
It's not the hand that cuts, it's the heart we left behind
It's not the hand that cuts, it's the hatred deep inside.
Five dollars and a head to keep, with dull black scissors and some kerosene; 
you burnt the house, but you came to bid him well.
What a thing to tell, "Store poison in the well."
Just to say, just to say, just to say, just to say...

[Verse]
I ain't cutting my hair till the good lord comes. 
I ain't cutting my hair till the good lord comes, 
arrive upon the mountain just to see what we have done,
I ain't cutting my hair, cutting till the good lord comes.
Til the good lord comes.

Hey i was just trying to learn this song! You have a great tab here, but I've been playing around with it. Might i make some comments??

To play along with the song its capo on the second fret. The chord progression in the verse is really good. if you want to play around with it just hammer on the G string at the end of the line when you play E, gives the song some more texture and lets you play around with it a bit.
The chorus could use a bit of a change. If you go:

(A) cuz its a coal (A2)its a coal war - with A2 just being an A chord but you put your pinky on the b string 5th fret OR switch to a barre chord A (5th fret)
and then go to an E with the hammer on for the last bit of the chorus :)

thanks for posting this!

Check out this more fully backed version: capo can be seen on the first, and sounds pretty close playing along
