Intro: [Em][D-C] x4


1st verse:
Em                    D - C  -
Colours on the street
    Em             D - C  -
Red white and blue
       Em                  D - C  -
People shuffling their feet
        Em                     D - C  -
People sleeping in their shoes
          Em                  D -   C  -
There's a warning sign on the road ahead
          Em                           D -        C  -
There's a lot of people saying we'd be better off dead
      Em                    D -   C  -
Don't feel like Satan but I am to them
     Em                  D  -  C  -
So I try to forget it anyway I can


Chorus :
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world

[A] x4
[Em][D-C] x4



2nd verse :
        Em                 D - C  -
I see a woman in the night
       Em               D - C  -
With a baby in her hand
         Em               D - C  -
Under an old street light
       Em         D - C  -
Near a garbage can
        Em                          D    -        C  -
Now she puts the kid away and she's gone to get a hit
    Em                            D  -    C  -
She hates her life and what she's done to it
       Em                     D   -       C  -
That's one more kid that will never go to school
      Em                         D   -     C  -
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool



Chorus :
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  Em*
  Keep on rockin' in the free world

Bridge :
         Em                 D -  C  -
We got a thousand points of light
        Em           D - C  -
For the homeless man
         Em                 D -       C  -
We got a kinder, gentler, Machine gun hand

We got department stores and toilet paper

Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
      Em                      D  -       C  -
Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
    Em                D   -    C  -
Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive
