Halfway to freedom    (video)

 

       C  - F - C                               G     - C - G

1. You             got to sing a new song,

                        F                                 C         G     - C - G

    cause the way that we’re going is far too long.

       C     - F - C                                       G     - C - G

    Alone,           when you can’t hear a sound,  

                        F                                C            G     - C - G

    and you’re halfway to freedom, it can’t be found.

 

                  C                               F

But we’ve got the love, and the feeling’s strong,

                   C                          F            G      - C - G

and we’re going on, and we can’t go wrong.

   C                             F                  C

Halfway to freedom, sing out the word,

 C                                                                                G    - C - G

tables are turning, we’re learning our voice can be heard.

  C                           F                    C

Towers are falling, see how they burn,

 C                                                                        G     - C - G

hope for each other, our brothers, all over the world,

                     F

all over the world.

 

       C  - F - C                           G     - C - G

2. Love,          like a cry in the night,  

                     F                              C          G     - C - G

    we reach out for each other, peace to find.

       C   - F - C                                       G     - C - G

    Hear,          when the bells start to chime,    

                        F                                   C        G     - C - G

    and you’re halfway to freedom, it’s hard to find.

 

+  CHORUS (ending in C)

 

+  C    - F - C      - C    - G - C - G (2x) ....
