lyrics

C G D
I’ve seen the sunrise on the plains
C G
I thought about the past And then
D C G
Wondered how we got back here again
Em C G
And if the future looked as bleak as the
D Em
weather where
C G D
You used to call home
Em C G D
You must feel so all alone
C G D Em CGDCG
So I will sing to you here
D Em
Knowing somehow you will hear me there
C G
And I will sing everywhere
D C G
Till there’s no one left who doesn’t hear:
Bm C
Don’t let them keep him in one more day
G D
Don’t let them pretend that what they say
Bm
Is true
F C
When you and I and I and you
G D
Know something about paying dues

Em C G D
Oh To bear such bitter fruit,
when all we wish for is the truth
Oh to taste such bitter fruit
When all we want is just to speak the truth

C G D Em
a rising tide a falling star
the time has come to release him from those bars
the dark of night the break of day
set him free so he can go on his own way

Don't let them keep him one more day
Don't let them pretend that what they say is true
when you I and I and I and you know there's something more we must do
Oh to bear such bitter fruit
when all we wish for is the truth
and oh to taste such bitter fruit when all want is just to speak the truth

CGDCG
I've seen the sunrise on the plains
Won't you do what you can to see him walking free again
