SITTING IN LIMBO- Jimmy Cliff

 E
Sitting here in limbo, but I know it won't be long
 A                                             E
Sitting here in limbo, like a bird without a song
                B
Well, they're putting up resistance
       A             B                E
But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo, have some time to search my soul
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

CHORUS #1:
          A                   E
I don't know where life will lead me
       A                E
But I know where I've been
         A                  E
I can't say what life will show me
       A               E
But I know what I've seen
          B                C#m
Tried my hand at love and friendship
         B               C#m
But all that is past and gone
A                         B
This little boy is moving on


Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo, knowing that I have to go
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

CHORUS #2:
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
I can't say where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is past and gone
This little boy is moving on

REPEAT THIRD VERSE

E
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo, etc...



NOTE: The song sounds better if you add these variations to E:
0 2 2 1 0 4  and 0 2 2 1 0 2 and then the usual 0 2 2 1 0 0
So, while strumming you can move down the E string with your pinkie.  
Listen to the record to see what I mean.

(from The Harder They Come soundtrack, 1972)
