    G                  Em          C        G/B      Am
Old Pirates, yes, they rob I. Sold I to the merchant ships
G                   Em    C         G/B        D7
 Minutes after they took I from the bottomless pit
       G        Em         C       G/B           Am
But my hand was made strong by the hand of the Almighty
   G                   Em    C          D7
We forward in this generation triumphantly

                   G  C      D        G
Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
      C     D        Em

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds
        G               Em                    C        G/B       D7
Have no fear for atomic energy, cause none of them can stop the time
    G                          Em              C      G/B       Am
How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?
     G                     Em               C                 D7
Ooh, some say it's just a part of it. We've got to fulfil the book
