Singing the Spirit Home Songtext

They came (D)for him in the (Bm)morning, an (G)hour before (D)dawning
The pale white moon was (Bm)waning in the (G)African (A)sky -A
The (D)cell door flew wide (Bm)open, (G)they stood looking (D)at him
He saw no mercy (Bm)in their hearts, no (G)pity (A)in their (D)eyes
As they (D)took him and they (Bm)bound him, tied his (G)trembling hands be(D)hind him
He felt his courage (Bm)leave him, his (G)manhood disa(A)ppear -A
His (D)legs would not su(Bm)pport him, so (G)from the cell they (D)dragged him
He sobbed and screamed and (Bm)cursed them in his (G)loneli(A)ness and (D)fear

(D)Chains, (A)chains, (D)chains
How (G)many souls have (A)died in freedom's (D)name
To (G)some it is a (A)way of life, to (D)others just a (Bm)word
To (G)some it is a (A)snow-white dove, to (D)some a bloody (Bm)sword
But un(G)til the (A)last chains (D)fall, -F#m-Bm
(G)Freedom will make (A)slaves of us (D)all -F#m-Bm-F#m-G-Em-A
With (D)faces closed and (Bm)hidden the (G)white guards walked be(D)side him
Indifferent to his (Bm)pleading - they'd been (G)down this path be(A)fore -A
But (D)other eyes were (Bm)watching, (G)other ears were (D)listening
Other hearts beat (Bm)with him in his (G)final (A)desperate (D)hour

From the (D)darkness of that (Bm)prison came the (G)sound of his brothers (D)singing
Courage, their voices (Bm)told him, you (G)do not walk a(A)lone -A
From their (D)cells beyond the (Bm)shadow he (G)heard their voices (D)echo
As in love and pride and (Bm)sorrow they (G)sang his (A)spirit (D)home

Repeat 1
And their (D)song of hope and (Bm)freedom, it (G)rang inside that (D)prison
It beat against the (Bm)iron bars and (G)crashed against the (A)stone -A
As in their (D)fear and hate they (Bm)hung him, the (G)last sound that filled his (D)being
Was his brothers singing, (Bm)singing, (G)singing his (A)spirit (D)home

Courage, brother, you (A)do not walk a(D)lone
We shall walk with you and (A)sing your spirit (D)home
Repeat 2 with music fading
Repeat 2 a capella
Repeat 2 a capella fading
