I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.
Levon Helm.
Album: Electric Dirt.

(Probably played in it's original key, 
I put it at Capo 3 as the chords are
easier. Not sure if the intro is
correct, the middle break, good luck!)

Capo 3.
G7/D    XX0001
B7/D#   XX1202
C/D     XX0010
C#m7/b5 X42000
G/D     XX0003
Edim7   012020     

Intro: Bm7 Em G7/D C C/D G 

  G  B7/D#    Em G7/D      C    C/D   G
I wish I knew how it would feel to be free,
       C G/B   G6    D/F# G  D/A    A7      D7
I wish I could break all the chains holding me,
  G   B7       Em  G7      C         C/D        G   C#m7/b5 
I wish I could say all the things that I should say,
Em     G/D   B7/D#  Em
Say it loud, say it clear,
              G/D   C/D      G
For the whole round world to hear.

      B7       Em            C          C/D    G
I wish I could share all the love that's in my heart,
  C            G         D   A7  D7
Remove all the bars that keep us apart,
G      B7        Em7          C       C/D
I wish you could know what it means to be me,
G   C#m7/b5 G/D  B7/D#   Em7
Then you'd see, and agree,
     Em7        G/D   C/D G    
That every man, should be free.

Break: 

G     B7       Em   G7      C      C/D G
I wish I could give all I'm longing to give,
         C     G             D7      A7 D7
I wish I could live like I'm longing to live,
  G        B7/D#    Em  G7/D    C          C/D    G
I wish that I could do, all the things that I can do,
C#m7/b5   G/D B7/D# Em C#m7/b5 G/D  C/D      G  Em Edim7 G
Though I'm way overdue, I'd     be   starting anew.

    B7             Em   G7     C   C/D     G
Well I wish I could be, like a bird in the sky,
             C     G        D     A7      D7  Am
How sweet it would be, if I found I could fly,
       G    B7     Em   G7       C   C/D     G
Oh I'd soar to the sun, and look down at the sea,
C#m7/b5 G/D  B7/D#   Em   C#m7/b5 G/D   B7/D#  Em  
And I'd sing cos I'd know, how it feels to be free,
C#m7/b5 G/D  B7/D#   Em   C#m7/b5  G/D  B7/D#   Em
And I'd sing cos I'd know, and I'd sing cos I'd know,
C#m7/b5 G/D  B7/D#   Em   C#m7/b5  G/D  B7/D# Em 
And I'd sing cos I'd know, how it feels to be free.

Em6 Edim7 Bm G
