"Not Free"
Words and music by Justin McRoberts
Copyright  2000 Five Foot Six and a Half Music (ASCAP) /
5 Minute Walk Music (ASCAP)

Verse 1:
Batter my heart, 3 personed God
C      D        C     G   D/F#   Em7
Knock, breathe, shine and seek to mend
That I may rise, that I may stand
C     D      C        G     D/F#   Em7
Bend, break, breathe, burn, make me new

G                     C9
I am not free, unless You enthrall me
Em7                Cadd9               Em7
I am not chaste, unless You ravish me

Verse 2:
Surely I love, and would be loved fain
    C D  C G       D/F# Em7
But I am betrothed to my enemy
Break these ties, untie me again
    C D C G D/F#  Em7
And o-        ver- throw me

(Chorus x2)

C     D      C        G     D/F# 
Bend, break, breathe, burn, make
C     D      C        G     D/F#
Bend, break, breathe, burn, make
C     D      C        G     D/F#   Em7
Bend, break, breathe, burn, make me new

(Chorus x2)

G  C  G  C  G  C
me. . . 
G          C      G  C  G  C  G
Unless You ravish me. . .

Note: To get all of the fingerpicking that Justin does in this song, base
it off the chords and buy/listen to the CD (“Reason For Living”). Send
comments and corrections my way. God bless!
