G / / / D / / / C / / /

G / / C / / D / G / / C / / D /


Met myself a common county welfare line


I was a-feelin' strung out, hung out on the line

G D Em C

Saw myself a-goin' down to the war in June


All I want, all I want is to write myself a tune




Wrote a song for everyone


Wrote a song for truth

C G Em

Wrote a song for everyone--

C D7 G

When I couldn't even talk to you


Verse 2:

Got myself arrested, wound me up in jail

Richmond 'bout to blow up, communication fails

If you see the answer, now's the time to say

All I want, all I want is to get you down to pray




(instrumental, same pattern as verses)




Verse 3:

Saw the people standin' a thousand years in chains

Somebody said it's a-different now; look, it's just the same

Pharaohs spin the message round and round the truth

They could have saved a million people, how can I tell you?


(repeat chorus 3 times; third time, with extra measure and instrumental

break, sing "cou-ou-ou-ou-ouldn't")


G / / C / / D / G / / C / / D /


G / / C / / D / G


(Drummers: at single, final strum of G, tap cymbals and fade)
