Johnny Cash - Redemption chords

Johnny Cash - Redemption Day
standard tuning
Capo 6th

EmI've wept for those who suffer long
But how I weep for those who've gone Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
A EmBut keep on killing
It's in the soul to feel such things But weak to watch without speaking Oh what mercy sadness brings
A EmIf God be willing
GThere is a train that's heading straight
Em C GTo heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
And on the way, child and man,
Em C AAnd woman wait, watch and wait
Em For redemption day
EmFire rages in the streets
And swallows everything it meets It's just an image often seen
A EmOn television
Come leaders, come you men of great Let us hear you pontificate Your many virtues laid to waste
A EmAnd we aren't listening
A G CWhat do you have for us today
A G EmThrow us a bone but save the plate
A G COn why we waited till so late
C AWas there no oil to excavate
CNo riches in trade for the fate
AOf every person who died in hate
EmThrow us a bone, you men of great
A G CIt's buried in the countryside
A G EmIt's exploding in the shells at night
A G CIt's everywhere a baby cries
