[Verse]

    G                      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            Em7
But my hand was made strong
C           G/B          Am
By the hand of the Almighty.
     G                  Em   C          D
We forward in this generation triumphantly.


[Chorus]

                      G  C    D          G
Won't you help to sing    these songs of freedom?
       C     D       Em  C   D      G
'Cause all I ever had,    redemption songs,
C   D      G        C
 redemption songs.
D     G                           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            Am
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
    G                        Em7
How long shall they kill our prophets
        C       G/B            Am
While we stand aside and look?
             G            Em
Yes, some say it's just a part of it.
      C                 D
We've got to fulfill the book.


[Chorus]

                      G  C    D          G
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
      C     D       Em  C   D      G
None but ourselves can free our minds.
C   D      G        C
 Have no fear for atomic energy,
D     G                           Em7
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
        C       G/B            Am
How long shall they kill our prophets
       G                    Em
While we stand aside and look?
              C         G/B            Am
Yes, some say it's just a part of it.
    G                        Em7
We've got to fulfill the book.
        C       G/B            Am
Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
             G            Em
'Cause all I ever had, redemption songs,
      C                 D
These songs of freedom, songs of freedom.
