Cannot Buy My Soul
C A N N O T B U Y M Y S O U L Capo on 5 G G6 C9 G For 200 years us blacks are beaten down, too long on the dole. G G6 C9 D My dignity I'm losing here, mentally I'm old. G G6 C9 D There's a system here that nails us, ain't we left out in the cold. G G6 C9 G They took our life and our liberty friend but they could not buy our soul. G G6 C9 G Joe Hill died, Che Guevara fought and Pemulwuy lay down dead. G6 C9 D If a person speaks out critically here, you can get loaded down with lead. G G6 C9 D How long can the majority wait for their story to unfold. G G6 C9 G They took their life and liberty friend but they could not buy their soul. G G6 C9 G The clever man spoke precisely, humanity he said was almost done. G6 C9 D It's creed of greed could not proceed if our struggle's to be one. G G6 C9 D For humanities more important here than that constant quest for gold. G G6 C9 G You may take our life and liberty friend but you can never buy our soul. G G6 C9 G Jesus woke one morning, rode a donkey up through that gate. G6 C9 D He could see quite clearly why he was going to meet his fate. G G6 C9 D And the powers that be, could see that he could not be bought or sold. G G6 C9 G They took his life and liberty friend but they could not buy his soul. Another great song from a master songwriter. G - 320033 G6 - 200033 C9 - X32033 D - arpeggiated. Comments, corrections and/or rating appreciated. Enjoy!
