If You Had Me in Shackles

 

See also: Tom Paxton - If You Had Me in Shackles - Chords


Capo 4th fret D Am If you had me in shackles on a dungeon floor, D Am Cold iron shackles and a cast-iron door, C E/B A battalion of troopers just watching the key, Am I'd still be free.

If you had me on an island in the Spanish Main,
In a Spanish fortress in a jungle of rain,
A squadron of cruisers just watching me,
I'd still be free.


C Your shackles couldn't change my mind, Am Couldn't make me be what you want me to. C Your power couldn't make me blind E/B The way it's blinded you.

If you had me in a tower with a marble wall,
One window above me, no stairs at all.
If you needed a ladder just to check on me,
I'd still be free.

Your shackles couldn't change my mind,
Couldn't make me be what you want me to.
Your power couldn't make me blind
The way it's blinded you.

If you had me in shackles on a dungeon floor,
Cold iron shackles and a cast-iron door,
A battalion of troopers just watching the key,
I'd still be free.
I'd still be free.
I'd still be free.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1967)
