The Truth Will Set You Free

Intro: F#m2 E D F#m9

F#m2                       E         
Down the dirty city street, black-topped sneakers on my feet
D                                   F#m
I raced through early teenage years, and dealt with all those nameless fears
Waiting as the school bell rang to drop my books and join the gang
D                                    F#m2                                 A
In alley fights and stickball games, where passing girls wore dirty names

Over my (your) shoulder and back through the years
                                 D                                 C#m7
I can see my (you will see your) father's eyes in my (in your) memory
Saying (telling you) why Jesus died upon the cross
E                            D
All was won and nothing lost
            E                  F#m2
And how the truth will set you free
    D                    E                 F#m
Yeah, and how (son) the truth will set you free

F#m2                                 E
I turned my collar, I combed my hair, I'd hide all the confusion there
D                                    F#m
When two dimes made my pockets ring, I was a wealthy New York king
Being cool by the candy store, I knew my world, yet wanted more
D                                        F#m2                                A
My high school colors of black and blue, they would disturb my point of view


F#m2                                    E
Our candy store's turned shopping mall, and two dimes won't buy much at all
D                            F#m
The boy Caruso on the street is a father now in slippered feet
Who tells his son as years go by, how God's the truth and hates a lie
D                                    F#m2                                        A
It's not what's in your pockets, son, but what's in your heart that makes us one


    Dmaj7                    A/E   E   Esus4    F#m
The truth will set you, the truth will set you free (repeat and fade)
