CAPO I


INTRO: E  Esus4  E  Esus4  (2x)

E                       Esus4         E                        Esus4
There was a man named Mahatma Ghandi, he would not bow down he would not fight
E                    Esus4           E                   Esus4
He knew the deal was down and dirty, nothin' wrong could make it right
A                                                   E   Esus4  E
Away, but he knew his duty, and the price he had to pay
                  B7                   A                   E         Esus4  E  Esus4
Just another holy man, tried to make a stand, my God they killed him

E                 Esus4           E              Esus4
Another man from Atlanta Georgia, name of Martin Luther King
E                   Esus4             E                Esus4
Shook the land like rolling thunder, made the bells of freedom ring
A                                                  E    Esus4  E
Today, with a dream of beauty that they could burn away
                  B7                 A                   E          Esus4  E  Esus4
Just another holy man, dared to be a friend, my God they killed him


INTRO

A  E

B7  A              E           Esus4  E  Esus4
      (my God they killed him)

E               Esus4        E                   Esus4
The only Son of God Almight, the Holy One called Jesus Christ
E                   Esus4           E                 Esus4
Healed the lame and fed the hungry, for his love they took his life
A                                                E     Esus4  E
Away, on the road to glory where the story never ends
                     B7                  A                    E          Esus4  E  Esus4
Just the Holy Son of Man, we'll never understand, my God they killed Him


E  Esus4  E  Esus4

E                  Esus4
Sing about Mahatma Ghandia
E              Esus4                      
Sing of Martin Luther King
E              Esus4

And the Brothers Kennedy

This song may have been written by Bob Dylan. It was on the album 'Brownsville Girl" released in 87-88.

I don't know about that, but Kristofferson definitely wrote it. I can see Dylan recording it, though; it's right up his alley.
