Tuning: standard (eBGDAE) CAPO 1st fret The other version is pretty much spot on, but stops halfway through, so I made this one. Chords marked with a dot (.) are for half a bar only. Intro: A D A E | A D A. E. A
A DWell Jo'anna she runs a country
A EShe runs in Durban and the Transvaal
A DShe makes a few of her people happy, oh
A. E. AShe don't care about the rest at all
A DShe's got a system they call apartheid
A EIt keeps a brother in a subjection
A DBut maybe pressure will make Jo'anna see
A. E. AHow everybody could a live as one
A DGimme hope, Jo'anna; Hope, Jo'anna
A EGimme hope, Jo'anna; 'Fore the morning come
A DGimme hope, Jo'anna; Hope, Jo'anna
A. E. AHope before the morning come
A D I hear she makes all the golden money
A ETo buy new weapons, any shape of guns
A D While every mother in a black Soweto fears
A. E. AThe killing of another son
A DSneakin' across all the neighbours' borders
A ENow and again having little fun
A DShe doesn't care if the fun and games she play
A. E. AIs dang'rous to ev'ryone
[chorus] [interlude: repeat intro]
A DShe's got supporters in high up places
A EWho turn their heads to the city sun
A DJo'anna give them the fancy money
A. E. AOh to tempt anyone who'd come
A DShe even knows how to swing opinion
A EIn every magazine and the journals
A DFor every bad move that this Jo'anna make -
A. E. AThey got a good explana-tion
A DEven the preacher who works for Jesus
A EThe Archbishop who's a peaceful man
A DTogether say that the freedom fighters
A. E. AWill overcome the very strong
A DI wanna know if you're blind Jo'anna
A EIf you wanna hear the sound of drums
A DCan't you see that the tide is turning -
A. E. AOh don't make me wait till the morning come
[chorus x2]
