Redemption Song

Redemption Song

G                      Em Em7
Old Pirates, yes, they rob I.
C        G/B      Am
Sold I to the merchant ships
G                  Em      C         G/B        Am
minutes after they took I   from the bottomless pit.
G            Em Em7
But my hand was made strong
C      G/B           Am
By the hand of the Almighty.
G                   Em    C   Am7    D
We forward in this generation triumphantly.

(D)                G    C       D        G
Won’t you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
C     D        Em   C  D       G      C
Cause all I ever had,      redemption songs,
D       G      C D
redemption songs.

(D)   G                           Em Em7
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
C          G/B          Am
None but ourselves can free our minds.
G                        Em
Have no fear for atomic energy,
C        G/B         D
Cause none of them can stop the time.
G                        Em Em7
How long shall they kill our prophets
C      G/B         Am
While we stand aside and look?
G              Em
Ooh, some say it’s just a part of it.
C         Am7         D
We’ve got to fulfill the book.
