ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN AIN'T FREE
-J.Cash-
Recorded December 20, 1964 NASHVILLE, TENN
Album: Orange Blossom Special

KEY: C

INTRO: C  Am  C  G  C

VERSE:
C                   F            C
I'd sing more about more of this land
              G              C
But all God's children ain't free
C                 F      C 
I'd open up ev'ry door I can
                G              C
Cause all God's children ain't free

G         
I met a beaten broken man
   C                F      C
He shovels dirt but got no land
                    Am
And he held out his hand to me
C         G              C
All God's children ain't free

VERSE:
I'd sing along to a silly song
But all God's children ain't free
I'm gonna sing a blues for the man they done wrong
Cause all God's children ain't free

Mister how 'bout the man you condem to die 
By takin' ev'rything that he's livin' by 
And reject him from society
All God's children ain't free

No, reject him from society
All God's children ain't free

SOLO: C  Am  C  G  C

VERSE:
I'd be happy walkin' any street
But all God's children ain't free
I'd have a smile for all I meet
But all God's children ain't free

I'd whistle down the road but I wouldn't feel right
I'd hear somebody cryin' out at night
From a sharecropper's shack or penitentiary
All God's children ain't free

From a sharecropper's shack or penitentiary
All God's children ain't free

Orange Blossom Special is an awesome album.
I love the harmonica playing on it.Cash
didn't play it on the album, but I've seen
videos of him playing harmonica on stage,
and he's awesome.Good tab.

Cash always played harmonica on stage during ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL and would usually throw one of the two out into the audience at the end. While his playing is not as elaborate as Charles McCoy's on the album, he really got the crowd going with that tune!
