			     Thats freedom by John Farnham.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim Norton  Australia.
Email: t_n46@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard EADGBE

This is the album version from Chain Reaction 1990, although I have also tabbed out 
live solo performed by Jack Jones (Irwin Thomas) from the 1990 Melbourne Chain reaction 
(on DVD). The background power chords are noted at the bottom of the page.
Great song. Good luck and enjoy!

Intro: E6*

Verse 1a:
E6                                         E6/C#*
I dont know what you want from me or what you think love ought to be
E6	                                       E6/C#
I want something thats open and strong as the country this roads moving on from the

Verse 1b
E6                              E6/C#
Mountain to the valley from the ocean to the alley from the
E6                        E6/C#
highway to the river one emotion to deliver

Pre-chorus:
    Asus2*        Bsus2*       Asus2       Bsus2
One heart,    one way,     one love,    to share but not to chain (thats freedom)

Chorus:
E                  F#m*                Bsus2               Asus2
Its a song of the heart a race in the wind a light in the dark (thats freedom)
E                F#m                Bsus2             Asus2
Its a reason to live and after the rain rekindle the spark let freedom ring.


Fill: E6


Verse 2:
E6                                     E6/C#
I dont know why it takes so long to remember what the worlds doing wrong
E6                                 E6/C#
Never wanted to shove my plan on another who cant understand

Pre-chorus 2:
Asus2                                  Bsus2
All I want is a fast lane to where the road across this plain wont take you
Asus2                              Bsus2
I want something you understand to make us stand proud as nothing else can (thats freedom)

Chorus:
E                  F#m                 Bsus2               Asus2

E                F#m                Bsus2             Asus2
Its a reason to live and after the rain rekindle the spark (thats freedom)
E                 F#m                 Bsus2                Asus2
Its a measure of trust when love is alive its tender and tough (thats freedom)
E                 F#m               Bsus2             Asus2
Its all love is about its opening up and letting it out let freedom ring
