[Capo 3]

          Am
One day a friend took me aside
                     Dm
and said, "I have to leave you.
           Am
For buying something from a friend
                     Em      E7
They say I have done wrong.
       Am
For protecting the name of a man
                      Dm7
they say I'll have to leave you.
           Am              Em                Dm7    Am
So now I'm bidding you farewell for much too long.

             Am                     Dm7
And here's a song to sing for every man inside.
          Am                         Em     E7
If he can hear you sing it's an open door.
              Am                          Dm7
There's not a rich man there who couldn't pay his way
            Am                Em                 Dm7    Am
and buy the freedom, that's a high price for the poor.

Am(9)          Dm7(6)         Am(9)              Em       E7
Kids in Texas, smoking grass, ten year sentence, comes to pass.
Am(9)       Dm7(6)        Am(9)          Em       E7
Misdemeanor in Ann Arbor, ask the judges why?

        Am
Another friend said to her kids
                  Dm
I'm gonna have to leave you
            Am
For selling something to the man
              Em     E7
I guess I did wrong.
               Am
And although I did the best I could
                  Dm7
I'm gonna have to leave you.
           Am              Em                Dm7    Am
So now I'm kissing you farewell for much too long.

             Am                     Dm7
And here's a song to sing for every man inside.
          Am                         Em     E7
If he can hear you sing it's an open door.
              Am                          Dm7
There's not a rich man there who couldn't pay his way
            Am                Em                 Dm7    Am7
and buy the freedom, that's a high price for the poor.
