Redemption Day (Sheryl Crow)

Ami 1. I've wept for those who suffer long But how I weep for those who've gone Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong Dsus4 But keep on killing 2. It's in the soul to feel such things But weak to watch without speaking Oh what mercy sadness brings If God be willing Ami/H C R: There is a train that's heading straight C/H Ami Ami/H C To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate C/H C And on the way, child and man C/H Ami Ami/H D And woman wait, watch and wait Ami For redemption day 3. The fire rages in the streets And swallows everything it meets It's just an image often seen On television 4. Come leaders, come you men of great Let us hear you pontificate Your many virtues laid to waste And we aren't listening Ami Dsus4 C Ami *1: What do you have for us today Ami Dsus4 C Ami Throw us a bone but saw the plate Ami Dsus4 C Ami Oh why we waited til so late Ami Dsus4 Was there no oil to excavate No riches in trade for the fate Of every person who died in ate C Ami Throw us a bone, you men of great Ami/H C R: There is a train that's heading straight C/H Ami Ami/H C To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate C/H C And on the way,child and man C/H Ami C Dsus4 And woman wait, watch and wait Ami For redemption day Ami C Dsus4 Ami *2: It's buried in the countryside Ami C Dsus4 Exploding in the shells of night Ami It's everywhere a baby cries Dsus4 Ami Dsus4 Ami Ami Freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom
