             D      C               G
Met myself a common  county welfare line
                C           G               D
I was a-feelin' strung out, hung out on the line
G            D     Em                   C
Saw myself a-goin'   down to the war in June
G           D                C              G
All I want, all I want is to write myself a tune

C                G
 Wrote a song for everyone
C                 G
 Wrote a song for truth
C                 G       Em
 Wrote a song for everyone--
       C             D7      G
When I couldn't even talk to you

Verse 2:
Got myself arrested, wound me up in jail
Richmond 'bout to blow up, communication fails
If you see the answer, now's the time to say
All I want, all I want is to get you down to pray


(instrumental, same pattern as verses)


Verse 3:
Saw the people standin' a thousand years in chains
Somebody said it's a-different now; look, it's just the same
Pharaohs spin the message round and round the truth
They could have saved a million people, how can I tell you?

(repeat chorus 3 times; third time, with extra measure and instrumental
break, sing "cou-ou-ou-ou-ouldn't")
