I SHALL BE RELEASED - BOB DYLAN 


A Bm

they say everything can be replaced

C#m Bm A E7

yet every distance is not near

A Bm

so I remember every face

C#m Bm A E7

of every man who put me here

 

A Bm

I see my light come shining

C#m Bm A

from the west unto the east

A

any day now

Bm

any day now

C#m Bm A

I shall be released

 

they say every man needs protection

they say every man must fall

yet I swear I see my reflection

somewhere so high above this wall

 

there stands a man in this lonely crowd

a man who swears he's not to blame

all day long I hear him cry so loud

calling out that he's been framed
