Band – I Shall Be Released lyrics

E F#m
They say everything can be replaced
G#m A B E
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
G#m A B E B
Of every man who put me here

E F#m
I see my light come shinin'
G#m A B E
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
G#m A B E
I shall be released

They say ev'ry man needs protection
They say that ev'ry man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall


Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
And all day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed
