SHED A LITTLE LIGHT by James Taylor
Chords by Jon Edward Ferner Diesen


Fdim            Fm#
Let us turn our thoughts today
   Bm     A      E
To Martin Luther King
                             A       A/C#
And recognize that there are ties between us
D   Fdim      F#m      
All men and women
E         A/C#    D
Living on the earth
Bm      A        E       Fm7
Ties of hope and love
Bm7        A      E
Sister and brotherhood

            A          A/C#
That we are bound together
       D         Fdim    F#m
In our desire to see the world become
   E       A/C#         D
A place in which our children
A        Bm    A     E
Can grow free and strong
       A        A/C#
We are bound together
        D         Fdim     F#m
By the task that stands before us
         E         A/C#   D
And the road that lies ahead
A      Bm        A        E
We are bound and we are bound


F#m7  E/G#           A       Bbdim    Bm        A/C# D    Fdim
          There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist
F#m7  E/G#           A      Bbdim  Bm     A/C#   D     Fdim                  
          There is a hunger in the center of the chest
F#m7  E/G#           A       Bbdim       Bm       A/C#    D   Fdim
          There is a passage through the darkness and the mist
F#m7  E/G#               A    Bbdim      Bm         A/C#  D6
          And though the body sleeps the heart will never rest

E              A               C#m    F#m    Bm-A-E
 Shed a little light, oh lord
               Bm-A-E
So that we can see
              A                C#m   F#m   Bm-A-E
Just a little light, oh lord
                  Bm-A-E
Wanna stand it on up
            A             C#m   F#m   Bm-A-E
Stand it on up, oh lord
                 Bm-A-E
Wanna walk it on down
                        A   A/C#  A/D  E 2x
Shed a little light, oh lord


Em                D/F#                             A         Bm7
Can't get no light from the dollar bill
Em                D/F#                             A         Bm7
Don't give me no light from a tv screen
Em                D/F#                             C        F#7
When I open my eyes     I wanna drink my fill
                Bm7              E
From the well on the hill
F#m7             D6        E
do you know what I mean?


E              A               C#m    F#m    Bm-A-E
 Shed a little light, oh lord
               Bm-A-E
So that we can see
              A                C#m   F#m   Bm-A-E
Just a little light, oh lord
                  Bm-A-E
Wanna stand it on up
            A             C#m   F#m   Bm-A-E
Stand it on up, oh lord
                 Bm-A-E
Wanna walk it on down
                        A   A/C#  A/D  E 2x
Shed a little light, oh lord


F#m7  E/G#           A       Bbdim    Bm        A/C# D    Fdim
          There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist
F#m7  E/G#           A      Bbdim  Bm     A/C#   D     Fdim                  
          There is a hunger in the center of the chest
F#m7  E/G#           A       Bbdim       Bm       A/C#    D   Fdim
          There is a passage through the darkness and the mist
F#m7  E/G#               A    Bbdim      Bm         A/C#  D6
          And though the body sleeps the heart will never rest
