VERSE:
       D                                   G
Come round by my side and I'll sing you a song
      D                      C           D
I'll sing it so softly it'll do no one wrong
    D          G           D
On Birmingham Sunday the blood ran like wine
          C          G           D      C G D
And the choirs kept singing of freedom


VERSE:
      D                                   G
That cold autumn morning no eyes saw the sun
     D                      C          D
And Addie Mae Collins, her number was one
       D            G              D
At an old baptist church there was no need to run
          C          G           D     D G D
And the choirs kept singing of freedom


VERSE:
          D                                        G
Now the clouds they were grey and the autumn wind blew
     D                         C         D
And Denise McNair brought the number to two
     D          G           D
The falcon of death was a creature they knew
          C          G           D
And the choirs kept singing of freedooooooom

   C       G       D
Ooooooh ooooooh ooooooh
 D
Ahhh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahhh


VERSE:
      D                                      G
The church it was crowded, but no one could see
      D                     C           D
That Cynthia Wesley's dark number was three
       D              G              D
Her prayers and her feelings would shame you and me
          C          G           D     D G D
And the choirs kept singing of freedom


VERSE:
 D                                 G
Young Carol Robertson entered the door
         D                      C         D
And the number her killers had given was four
     D            G           D
She asked for a blessing but asked for no more
          C          G           D
And the choirs kept singing of freedom


INSTRUMENTAL:
   C       G       D
Ooooooh ooooooh ooooooh

Oooh oooh oooh  oooh oooh oooh  oooh oooh oooh


VERSE:
    D                                    G
On Birmingham Sunday a noise shook the ground
     D                   C              D
And people all over the earth turned around
 D           G             D
For no on recalled a more cowardly sound
          C          G           D     D G D
And the choirs kept singing of freedom


VERSE:
         D                                  G
Now the Sunday has come and the Sunday has gone
        D                          C          D
And we can't do much more than to sing you a song
      D          G          D
I'll sing it so loudly you better sing along
          C          G           D
And the choirs keep singing of freedom


INSTRUMENTAL/OUTRO:
   C       G       D
Ooooooh ooooooh ooooooh
  G   D    Em              A               D
Oooh oooh oooh  oooh oooh oooh  oooh oooh oooh
