Intro: Ebsus2   Ebsus2   Ebsus2   Ebsus2   Eb9


Ebsus2      Ebsus2          Cm          Cm   
  There is freedom within,   there is freedom without
Ab                                    G
  Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
Eb           Eb             Cm     Cm          
  There's a battle ahead,   many battles are lost
Ab                          Ab
  But you'll never see the end of the road
             G               G
while you're travelling with me


Ab        Bb             Eb          Cm
Hey now, hey now Don't dream it's over
Ab        Bb                Eb           Cm
Hey now, hey now When the world comes in
Ab          Bb         Eb                 Cm
They come, they come   To build a wall between us
Ab       Ab              Ab   Bb
We know they won't win


Ebsus2                   Cm
  Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
Ab                                             G
  My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
Eb                    Cm 
  In the paper today  tales of war and of waste
Ab                                     G
  But you turn right over to the T.V. page


Ab        Bb             Eb          Cm
Hey now, hey now Don't dream it's over
Ab        Bb                Eb           Cm
Hey now, hey now When the world comes in
Ab          Bb         Eb                 Cm
They come, they come   To build a wall between us
Ab                        Bb
We know they won't win
Ebsus2                   Cm
  Now I'm walking again   to the beat of a drum
Ab                                   G
  And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Eb                        Cm
  Only the shadows ahead   barely clearing the roof
Ab                                         G
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief


Ab        Bb             Eb          Cm
Hey now, hey now Don't dream it's over
Ab        Bb                Eb           Cm
Hey now, hey now When the world comes in
Ab          Bb         Eb                 Cm
They come, they come   To build a wall between us
Ab                        Bb
Don't ever let them win

    Trust me! The right one is +2

  2. keif malone

    Thank you for posting this. IT IS THE CORRECT ONE! I was very happy to find it after a lot of searching… BTW, I’m using it for guitar, not ukulele. ;)

  3. I agree ki.rra -1 is the best.Easy too if you want to sing it.

  4. -1 is the best in my opinion

  5. the first chords intro are bad
    should be:Eb=D# – Eb9

    and the verse 1

  6. +4 is easier

  7. boneymaloney

    In the alternative version, I think Csus2 should be C.
