Intro: G D C

        G                 D                C          Bb
Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day
         G                    D            C
And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf
                      G                  D 
But let me tell you I got some news for you
           C                        Bb
And you'll soon find out it's true
                G                D                C
And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself

Cause I'm already gone             G D C
And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song
woo hoo hoo, my my, woo hoo hoo

The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why
But I guess you felt like you had to set things right
Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky
You can see the stars and still not see the light (that's right)

And I'm already gone
And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song
woo hoo hoo, my my, woo hoo hoo

Solo

Well, I know it wasn't you who held me down
Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
And we never even know we have the key

But me, I'm already gone
And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song
Cause I'm already gone

Yes, I'm already gone             C G F
And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song
Cause I'm already gone
Yes, I'm already gone
Already gone (repeat and fade)
