                          "This Is My Country"
                           (Curtis Mayfield)


	C#   /C      Bbm   /Ab      Ebm7         Ebm7/Ab
	/  /  /  /    /  /  /  /      /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /

Verse 1:

	C#           /C            Bbm            /Ab
	Some people think we don't have the right
	           Ebm7        Ebm7/Ab
	To say it's my country
	   C#            /C                Bbm            /Ab
	Before they give in, they'd rather fuss and fight
	             Ebm7        Ebm7/Ab
	Than say it's my country

	      C#         B               F#7
	I've paid three hundred years or more
	     C#             B         F#7
	Of slave driving, sweat, and welts on my back
	    [1: D#m7/G#]
	  [2,3: D#m7       D#m7/G#]
	This is my country

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	Too many have died in protecting my pride
	For me to go second class
	We've survived a hard blow and I want you to know
	That you must face us at last

	And I know you will give consideration
	Shall we perish unjust or live equal as a nation
	This is my country

[repeat intro]

[repeat second half of verse 2; N.C. on "equal"]

[repeat intro to fade]

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
