INTRO
Am F G Em x2


VERSE I
Am                  F                    G                       Em
Five in the morning an hour before dawn, they wake her up in her bed
Am                      F                        G     G
Standing over her body, and holding a gun to her head
Am                           F
She says "why have you come, oh and what have I done"
G                              Em
They'll tell her "it's come to defeat"
Am                                    F                         G       G
Then they kick through her paintings, and drag her out into the street


CHORUS
Am          F          G         G
Oh my love, don't take any-more
Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, break down the door
Am F G Em


VERSE II
Am                    F
By day they take her, and interiogate her
G                             Em
and tell her "she's crude and insane"
Am                             F                          G     G
but by night the same keepers, will steal in and rape her aain
Am                          F
She can't see who they are, through the thick black bars
G                          Em
That cast shadows over her eyes
Am                  F                                    G      G
And if she resists, they'll beat hear with fists til she cries


CHORUS
Am          F          G         G
Oh my love, don't take any-more
Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, break down the door
Am          F                    G     G
Oh my love, there's a sun in the east

         Am       F  G  Em
Its your release

Am  F  G  Em  x5


VERSE III
Am                   F
So you the dictator, whose choosen to hate her
G                       Em
tellin' ya to listen to me
Am                                    F
There are others who'll fight for the right
              G     G
to be tender and free
Am                         F
If she dies at your hands, just you understand
G                              Em
I've a knife that is sharp and clean
Am                            F
And i'll paint in your blood, til it turns to a flood
        G   G
Let her be


CHORUS
Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, don't take any-more
Am          F              G     G
Oh my love, break down the door
Am          F                    G     G
Oh my love, there's a sun in the east
          Am
It's your release
