Capo on the 1st fret.
    Bm                              G                            
The sun was beating down inside the walls of stone and razor wire
D                             A
As we made our way across the prision yard
  Bm                             G        
I felt my heart begin to race as we drew nearer to the place
D                                    A
Where they say that death is waiting in the dark
    Em                            Bm
The slamming doors of iron echoed through the halls 
G                                   A
Where despair holds life within its creul claws
    Bm                         G    
But then I met a man whse face seemed so strangely out of place
  D                                  A
A blinding light of hope was shining in his eyes 
    Bm                              G
And with repentance in his voice he told me of his tragic choice
     D                              A
That led him to this place where he must pay the price
    Em                                 Bm   
But then his voice grew strong as he began to tell 
 G                                A
About the one he said had rescued him from Hell, He said

    G     A        Bm
I'm free, yeah, oh I have been forgiven 
     G              A                 Bm 
Gods love has taken off my chains and given me these wings
        G     A             Bm       
And I'm free, yeah, and the freedom I've been given 
   G                                 A
Is something that not even death can take away fom me
        Bm          G
Because    I'm free
             D     A
Jesus set me free

Verse 2 is the same as the first verse.


F#sus          F#               F#sus          F#
If the Son has set you free, oh if the Son has set you free
Oh, you are free indeed, oh you are really free
    F#sus          F#                F#sus          F#
Oh, If the Son has set you free, oh, if the Son has set you free,
G                            A
You are free, really, really free

*Chorus 2x*

Play D and G untill the end.  The part at the end where he sings, "If the
Son has set you free, you are free indeed,"  play D and G also.

this is really good :) and by the way, ejn362, he said that the 2nd verse was the same as the first Hey that rhymes! I was a poet and didn't know it!

ok enough with the corny jokes.....great tab, man it's a great song.

Actually, there is a second verse, and it's not the first like this sheet says. Let me be nice and share with you all : )

We said a prayer and said goodbye and tears began to fill my eyes
As I stepped back out into the blinding sun
And even as I drove away I found that I could not escape
The way he spoke of what the grace of God had done
I thought about how sin had sentenced us to die
And how God gave His only Son so you and I,

could say (Chorus)

ya...i think he kinda meant that the chords are the same in the second verse...

not that there is no second verse altogether

I believe they meant that the chords are the same as the first verse. It makes for a shorter sheet, as the repetitive posting is highly unnecessary.
