[Verse]
E                                D A E                                       
You say that I put chains on you
E                                    D A E                   
But I don't think that's really true
E                                    D A E                   
But if you want to be free from me
E                    D       A                            
You gotta lose me in another world


[Chorus]                                                       
E              D         A2       A                         
Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
E              D             A2       A            
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
E              D          A2        A               
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
E              D         A2       A      
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please


[Verse]                                                       
E                        D A E                            
Like a soldier ant
E                                D A E     
I will wait for the signal to act
E                                     D A E      
To take a walk right through the door
E                         D    A              
If you don't want me here any more


[Chorus]     
E              D         A2       A                         
Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
E              D             A2       A            
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
E              D          A2        A               
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
E              D         A2       A      
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

Into my heart you came
    C                G           G6   G

I thought it never would go out

Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
E              D             A2       A            
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
E              D          A2        A               
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
E              D         A2       A      
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

        E              D         A2       A        
You can send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
E              D             A2       A        
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
        E              D         A2       A     
Yes you can send me to the Congo, you have to believe
E              D         A2       A          
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

Bm            G             A              Bm                                   
I would never be the one to say you had no reason
Bm            G           A        Bm                                           
To want me somewhere else far far away
    Bm              G           A                 F#m                                                   
But someday you may understand, someday you will see
Bm                     G              A             Bm  
That someone who would die for you is all I've ever been
Bm        G                A              Bm                                                    
Congo the Congo, if that's how it's got to be
Bm        G                A               Bm  
Congo the Congo, if that's what you want from me
Bm            G             A              Bm                                   
I would never be the one to say you had no reason
Bm            G           A        Bm                                           
To want me somewhere else far far away
    Bm              G           A                 F#m                                                   
But someday you may understand, someday you will see.........
