Album: Freedom's Child 
 
 
Intro: G A D 
 
          D           G               D             G                   
There's a drug dealer selling to your children everyday 
 
            D                           A 
He's rotten evil, but he ain't nobody's fool 
 
     D                 G 
He's dealin' death and livin' high 
 
D                    G 
Off your hard-earned pay,  
 
G                     A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
 
G                     A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
E                        E7              A7 
Why should children, why should women be abused 
 
           G            A                D               G       
There's so precious few among us walking in the Savior's shoes 
 
G                     A               D  
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
 
G A D 
 
 
      D                G          D                 G 
We've got to stamp out hunger all around the planet Earth 
 
      D             G              A 
We've got to be our weapons in the clouds 
 
      D                G 
We've got to ban these bombs I say,  
 
      D                G 
We've got to save our lives 
 
                       A 
We've got to do it all startin' now 
 
       G              A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
        E              E7                 A7 
Why the farmer and his crops we're saving too 
 
   G             A                 D                  G 
So every workin' stiff across this land won't have to lose 
 
       G              A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
 
G A D 
 
 
    D          G             D              G 
The first Americans were the riskiest human beings 
 
     D                                    A                   
They saved us all that first Thanksgiving Day 
 
         D             G             D              G 
Like the older folks behind, walkin' in the welfare line 
 
      G                                  A 
Their trail of tears grows longer by the way 
 
       G              A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
    E               E7        A7 
Why should any human being be abused 
 
        G               A                D               G 
There's so precious few among us walking in the Savior's shoes 
 
       G              A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues 
 
       G              A               D 
That's why The Man In Black sings the blues
