                Sade - Slave Song

since there is only drum and bass accompaniment.

Intro: Am (or just play verse progression)

F                               G                         Am
I see them gathered, see them on the shore
I turned to look once more
F
And he who knows me not
G                                       Am
Takes me to the belly of darkness


The tears run swift and hard
And when they fall
Even, even the comfort of a stone
Would be a gain

There was a time when I thought
I would have to give up
But I'm thankful that I'm
Strong as I am and I'll
Try to do the best I can

Chorus 1
 F
 Tears will run swift
           G                          Am
 And tears will come that fall like rain
 F
 I pray that it's swift though
  G                        Am
 Tears will fall as cold as pain
 F                            G
 I pray to the almighty
                           Am
 Let me not to him do
 As he has unto me
 F
 Teach my beloved children
 Who have been enslaved
       Am
 To reach for the light continually
 So many times I prayed
 So many times I've prayed for you
 Prayed for you

The tears run swift and hard and cold as pain
Even, even the comfort of a stone would be a gain
Had I not had the strength and wisdom of a warrior
I would have to give up

But I'm thankful that I'm
Strong as I am and I'll
Try to do the best I can

[Repeat Chorus]
  [alt. Last line in Chorus]
  Teach my beloved children I've been a slave
  But reach for the light continually

Wisdom is the flame
Wisdom is the brave warrior
Who will carry us into the sun
I pray that it's swift though
Tears will come that fall like rain

So many times, so many times
