[Verse 1]
DI remember the promise
BmThat you made in the barn
DWhen the kittens were born
BmAnd you could not keep warm
DSo you moved away the mountain
BmThat the sun rose behind
DAnd you said yourself a prayer
BmAnd laid down with the blind
[Chorus]
ABut you lost them in your freedom
BmAnd you need him now, you're wild
ABlessed is the memory
BmOf everybody's child
[Interlude] |: D Bm D Bm | [Verse 2]
DAnd the vow of compassion
BmThat you swore through your teeth
DWhen the war began to end
BmAnd the photographs weep
DWell, nobody blames you
BmAs the train pulls away
DWith its cargo of snow
BmFor these German paper-weights
[Chorus]
ABut you lost them in your freedom
BmAnd you need him now, you're wild
ABlessed is the memory
BmOf everybody's child
[Interlude] |: D Bm D Bm | [Verse 3]
DWell, it's five in the morning
BmThere's no one home
DExcept for your wife
BmAnd your child on the phone
DSomebody's got to listen
BmTo a promise or two
DOh, this room is far too small
BmFor a pilgrim like you
[Chorus]
ABut you lost them in your freedom
BmAnd you need him now, you're wild
ABlessed is the memory
BmOf everybody's child
[Interlude] |: D Bm D Bm | [Verse 4]
DSo, now that you've decided
BmTo follow the sun
DLike a shadow of birds
BmOr a king on the run
DOh, your chains are too dark
BmFor the seas you must swim
DYou are smiling at the seaweed
BmBut your smile is too grim
[Chorus]
ABut you lost them in your freedom
D Dsus4 DAnd you need him now, you're wild
ABlessed is the memory
DOf everybody's child
ABlessed is the memory
D Dsus4 DOf everybody's child
ABlessed is the memory
DOf everybody's child
