C
One morning you wake to find
        F           C
you are shackled to your bed
Am        F    C
and bound and gagged
   F
Oh my, what a predicament

Intro x1

C
And further, further on
    F         C
the day grows long
     Am               C
Your sister marries a nice young man
                 F        Em
and they build a house of diamonds

C
But the sun is snuffed by the curtains
F                        C
Can't someone come untie you?
          Am          F       C
But there is too much work to do
          Am         C
Yes, they all admire you

C            F     Em
You are free
                Am
You are already free
        G    Gp
You are alll-already free

Intro x2

C            F              Em
You are free from the greed of your culture
         Am                        G
You are free from the lust for the luster
       C       F             Em
of the diamond houses in the city's cluster
          Am     G           Am        G
From your own ego, from your own blunder

C       F          Em
Yes, you own the stars, you own the thunder
Am              G
But you have to share it all
         C       F          Em
Yes, you own the stars, you own the thunder
Am              G
But you have to share

C  F Em
You are freeeeee
                Am
You are already free
        G    Gp      C
You are alll already free

NOTE: His House of Diamonds cover is played differently than the actual song (the number 
of times he repeats the intro progression throughout the song is less than the original recording)
