Verse:
    C/G
One morning you wake to find
You are shackled to your bed
And bound and gagged
                 F/C C/G
Oh my, what a predicament

    C/G
And further, further on
The day grows long
Your sister marries a nice young man
                 F/C      Em
And they build a house of diamonds

    C/G
The sun is snuffed by the curtains
Can't someone come untie you
But there is too much work to do
Yes they all admire you

        C/G  F/C  Em
You are free
                Am
You are already free
        G       C/G
You are already free

        C/G           F/C           Em
You are free from the greed and the power
        Am                        G      (G7)
You are free from the lust of the luster
         C/G     F/C           Em
From the diamond houses in the city's cluster
          Am   G             Am   G
From your own ego, from your own blunders

             C/G     F/C        Em
Yea-hea, you own the stars, you own the thunder
        Am      G
But you have to share
             C/G     F/C        Em
Yea-hea, you own the stars, you own the thunder
        Am               G
But you have to share it all

        C/G  F/C  Em
You are free
                Am
You are already free
        G (G7)  C/G
You are already free
