If I Were Free
by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

Intro
C  G Am   F    C G Am  x2

C  G Am   F
If I were free
                              Am
I would run into battles with flowers and hugs
                                 G
And bow at the boots of our well-oiled thugs
               Am
Yes, if I were free

C  G  Am   F
If it were me
                               Am
I would yell out I love you to all I passed
                                  G
I would disrobe and disco and rip off my mask

               C               G                  Am           
Yes, if I were free I'd be the U that crossed the I to simply be
G                              F             C
Minding our reflections at the bottom of the sea
             G
What did you see?

C          G         Am
I saw that you and I forever have been free
    G                            F           C
The light became too heavy and I fell into a dream
             E7
What did you dream?

C G Am F   C Am  C Am   F   G     Am

C G       Am F
I dreamed a  wind that would sweep
                  Am
Every castle made of sand
                        G
Out across the old far holy land
                 Am
Oh, if this were free

C  G    Am   F
If this were free
                              Am
We'd be free of the terror of the graves
                         G
And fear masquerading as the brave 
                 C       G      Am
Oh, if this were free

C     G     Am

C      G             Am
I woke upon a pig of red, white and blue
    G                          F             C
The circus got too heavy so we fell into the zoo
             G
What did you feel?

C          G               Am
I felt the fear that every queer does in his head
G                                    F          C
First thing to starting over, I made sure I was dead
             G
What do you dream?

F   Am   G   E7   Am   C   E7

C             G                   Am
Swimming with ancients, laughing, tired of getting lost
   G                                F               C
We took our left, remember, when we leaned upon the cross
             G
What did you see?

C          G         Am
I saw that you and I forever have been free
    G                             F           C
The light became too heavy and we fell into a dream

C    G    Am
