G                           G6               C9          G
For 200 years us blacks are beaten down, too long on the dole.
   G           G6           C9           D
My dignity I'm losing here, mentally I'm old.
          G                G6                 C9              D
There's a system here that nails us, ain't we left out in the cold.
     G                     G6                      C9                G
They took our life and our liberty friend but they could not buy our soul.



G                     G6              C9                G
Joe Hill died, Che Guevara fought and Pemulwuy lay down dead.
                       G6                       C9                   D
If a person speaks out critically here, you can get loaded down with lead.
G                G6                      C9         D
How long can the majority wait for their story to unfold. 
     G                   G6                      C9                  G
They took their life and liberty friend but they could not buy their soul.



G                       G6                  C9              G
The clever man spoke precisely, humanity he said was almost done.
                          G6                 C9              D
It's creed of greed could not proceed if our struggle's to be one.
    G                 G6                     C9                 D
For humanities more important here than that constant quest for gold.
        G                 G6                         C9            G
You may take our life and liberty friend but you can never buy our soul.



G              G6              C9                     G
Jesus woke one morning, rode a donkey up through that gate.
                   G6                 C9                D
He could see quite clearly why he was going to meet his fate.
        G                     G6                C9               D
And the powers that be, could see that he could not be bought or sold.
     G                 G6                      C9                G
They took his life and liberty friend but they could not buy his soul.
