Dubliners – Free The People chords

Capo 5
Free the people:

Laws are made for people, and the law can never scorn, the right of a man to be free
F C FFree the people,
G CLet them have their say,
F C FFree the people,
G C F C GLet them see the light of day,
C Em FA dismal dawn was breaking when they took her man away,
F Dm GNot knowing what was his crime,
C Em FJust what he was guilty of not one of them could say,
F G CBut they think of something in time,
F G EmHe says "goodbye and remember,
F Dm GWe shall overcome!"
C Em FComforting her children softly crying in the night,
F Dm GShe tries very hard to explain,
C Em F"You know you daddy never did a thing that wasn't right,
F G CSo soon he's bound to be home again.
F G EmHe is a good man,
F Dm GAnd he shall overcome!"
CHORUS (Spoken) what does it profit him, The right to be born, If he suffers the loss of liberty? Laws were made for people, And the law can never scorn, We are the people, And we shall overcome!
F G Em(Singing) we are the people,
F Dm GAnd we shall overcome!
