Redemption Song

Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit

/ G - Em - / C G Am - / 1st / C - D - /

But my ha-a-and was made strong
By the hand of the almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly

{Refrain}
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom
'Cause all I ever had
Redemption songs, redemption songs

/ D - G - / C D G - / C D Em - / C D G - C D G - /

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
'Cause none of them can stop the time

How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book

{Refrain}
Redemption songs

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery...

How long shall they kill our prophets...

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom
'Cause all I ever had, redemption songs
All I ever had, redemption songs
These songs of freedom, songs of freedom
