Intro:

Am F G Em x2

Verse 1:

Am                  F                    G                       Em
Five in the morning an hour before dawn, they wake her up in her bed

Am                      F                        G     G
Standing over her body, and holding a gun to her head

Am                           F
She says "why have you come, oh and what have I done"

G                              Em
They'll tell her "it's come to defeat"

Am                                    F                         G       G
Then they kick through her paintings, and drag her out into the street

Chorus 1:

Am          F          G         G
Oh my love, don't take any-more

Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, break down the door

Am F G Em

Verse 2:

Am                    F
By day they take her, and interiogate her

G                             Em
and tell her "she's crude and insane"

Am                             F                          G     G
but by night the same keepers, will steal in and rape her aain

Am                          F
She can't see who they are, through the thick black bars

G                          Em
That cast shadows over her eyes

Am                  F                                    G      G
And if she resists, they'll beat hear with fists til she cries

Chorus 2:

Am          F          G         G
Oh my love, don't take any-more

Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, break down the door

Am          F                    G     G
Oh my love, there's a sun in the east

         Am       F  G  Em
Its your release

Am  F  G  Em  x5

Verse 3:

Am                   F
So you the dictator, whose choosen to hate her

G                       Em
tellin' ya to listen to me

Am                                    F
There are others who'll fight for the right
   
              G     G
to be tender and free

Am                         F
If she dies at your hands, just you understand

G                              Em
I've a knife that is sharp and clean

Am                            F
And i'll paint in your blood, til it turns to a flood

        G   G
Let her be

Chorus 3:

Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, don't take any-more

Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, break down the door

Am          F                    G     G
Oh my love, there's a sun in the east

          Am
It's your release
