        EADGBE    EADGBE    EADGBE

[Intro]
G    G    C    D    G    G    C    D    

[Verse 1]
 G                       C
Once upon a time and not so long ago,
       D                                  C             G
When things were much more simple and time would travel slow,
                                         C
There came a righteous stranger with a bible in his hand,
     D                       C           G
To educate the sinners and liberate the land.

[Chorus 1]
    G                         C
The sins of the fathers are visited from old,
        D                    C                G
In a never ending circle of people bought and sold,
                                  C
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold,
       D                                C              G
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold.

[Verse 2]
   G                              C 
So come and sit beside me and let my tale unfold,
          D                                 C           G
Of a land of milk and honey where the truth must not be told,
                                    C
As men of rhyme and reason let the devil take their soul,
      D                                C            G
For greed and fame and fortune and a river black as gold.

[Chorus 2]
    G                         C
The sins of the fathers are visited from old,
        D                    C                G
In a never ending circle of people bought and sold,
                                  C
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold,
       D                                C              G
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold.

[Saxophone Middle]
G    G    C    C    D    D    C    G    G    G    C    C    D    D    C    G

[Verse 3]
    G                            C
And all the non-believers were hiding from the light,
         D                          C               G
As a thousand burning crosses were scattered in the night,
                                   C 
The thieves and the vagabonds were sinking in the sand,
     D                                   C             G   
As a righteous lord and master stretches out a helping hand.

[Chorus 3]
    G                         C
The sins of the fathers are visited from old,
        D                    C                G
In a never ending circle of people bought and sold,
                                  C
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold,
       D                                C              G
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold.

[Verse 4]
   G                             C
And those who had to suffer the sick the young the old,
       D                            C          G
Were sacrificed to fortune and left out in the cold,
                                C
So in this new arrangement the leaders sold their soul,
      D                               C            G                
For bangles beads and baubles and a river black as gold.

[Chorus 4]
    G                         C
The sins of the fathers are visited from old,
        D                    C                G        
In a never ending circle of people bought and sold,
                                  C
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold,
       D                                C              G
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold.

[Chorus 5]
    G                         C
The sins of the fathers are visited from old,
        D                    C                G
In a never ending circle of people bought and sold,
                                  C
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold,
       D                                C              G
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold.

[Outro]
G    G    C    D    G    G    C    D    G    G
