off and on


CHORUS

(Note: judging from both the studio and live recordings of the song, the guitarist

beneath it. However, this doesn't sound particularly good in solo arrangements, so I've 
out the changing chords as best I can.)


G
Free... Wanna be

D7sus4
free... Gonna be

Em7
free...	and

     Cm
