Slave chords

Elton John


G There's a river running sweat right through our land Driven by a man with a bullwhip in his hand And I've taken just as much as I can stand C D C G Oh we've got to free our brothers from their shackles if we can Most nights I have to watch my woman cry Every day I watch the colonel smile His painted ladies riding in from town I swear one day I'm gonna burn that whore house to the ground Em C Slave, slave G D To fight the violence we must be brave Em C Hold on strong to the love God gave Em Slave There's a rumour of a war that's yet to come That may free our families and our sons It may lay green lands to barren wastes The price of release is a bitter blow to face
