            E              B                        
Hush little baby don't you cry 
         B7              E                           
Soon the sun is going to shine 
                  E                           B     
We're going to be free like the birds and the bees 
        B7                  E      (Descend with funk)                  
Running wild in the big country 

E                 G
Got to be free to do what I want 
D                A7
Walk if I want, talk if I want 
E                 G
Got to be free to say what I want 
D                    A7                          
Make what I want and play what I want 

   E                 G
As free as the birds up in the sky 
   D                        A7                          
As free as the bugs and the spiders and flies 
E                 G
I don't know how but I'm gonna try 
     D              E           
I've just got to be free 

                B               B7
And it won't be long 'cos we're right 
             E
And they are wrong 
                 E                     B    
We've got to get out of this world somehow 
                B7                         E               
We've got to be free, we've got to be free now 

E                 G
Got to be free to laugh when I want 
D                     A7                          
Think what I want and cry if I like 
E                 G
Got to be free to do what I want 
D                   A7                          
Say what I want and swear if I like 
   E                       G
As free as the sun and the moon in the sky 
   D                   A7                          
As free as a flea or a proud butterfly 
   E                 G
I don't know how but I'm gonna try 
D                   E                       
I've just got to be free 

(Instrumental as opening- (E) B B7 E)   
                 E                     B    
We've got to get out of this world somehow 
                B7                         E               
We've got to be free, we've got to be free now 

E                 G
Got to be free to do what I want 
D                A7
Walk if I want, talk if I want 
E                 G
Got to be free to say what I want 
D                    A7                          
Make what I want and play what I want 

     E                   G
I've got to be proud and stand up straight 
    D                      A7
And let people see I ain't nobody's slave 
     E                G
I've got to be free before it's too late 
D                   B    (Gliss!! etc)
I've just got to be free 
E                 G
Got to be free to do what I want 
D               A7
Walk if I want, talk if I want 

Repeat E G D A7 to fade
