Chords and Lyrics

[G] [D] [C] [G]
[G] [D] [C] [G]

Well, they [D]tell me of a [D]pie up in the [D]sky [D]
[C]Waiting for [C]me when I [C]die [C]
But be[D]tween the day you’re [D]born and when you [D]die [D]
They [C]never seem to [C]hear even your [C]cry [C]

So as [B7]sure as the [B7]sun will [B7]shine [B7]
I’m gonna [Em]get my share [Em]now, what’s [Em]mine [Em]
And then the [D]harder they [D]come, The [C]harder they [C]fall, one and
[G]all… [G] – [G] – [G]
Ooh, the [D]harder they [D]come, The [C]harder they [C]fall, one and
[G]all… [G] – [G] – [G]

Well, the [D]oppressors are [D]trying to keep me [D]down [D]
[C]Trying to drive [C]me under[C]ground [C]
And they [D]think that they have [D]got the battle [D]won [D]
I say for[C]give them Lord, they [C]know not what they’ve [C]done [C]


[G] [D] [C] [G]
[G] [D] [C] [G]

[D] [D] [D] [D]
[C] [C] [C] [C]
[D] [D] [D] [D]
[C] [C] [C] [C]

And I [D]keep on fighting [D]for the things I [D]want [D]
Though I [C]know that when you’re [C]dead you [C]can’t [C]
But I’d [D]rather be a [D]free man in my [D]grave [D]
Than [C]living as a [C]puppet or a [C]slave [C]
