Em                    D C     Em             D C
Colours on the street,    Red white and blue
       Em                    D C          Em                      D C  
People shufflin' their feet,       People sleepin' in their shoes
              Em                  D     C
But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead
          Em                           D           C
There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead
      Em                  D       C
Don't feel like Satan but I'm to them
     Em                  D      C
so I try to forget it anyway I can

        Em                D C       Em                D C
I see a girl in the night,   with a baby in her hand
         Em                D C        Em          D C
Under an old street light,     near a garbage can
        Em                          D             C     
Now she puts the kid away and she's gone to get a hit
    Em                            D       C     
She hates her life and what she's done to it
       Em                     D           C
That's one more kid that will never go to school
      Em                        D         C    
Never get to fall in love never get to be cool

CHORUS:
G         D                        C  C Em
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  C Em
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  C Em
  Keep on rockin' in the free world
G         D                        C  C Em
  Keep on rockin' in the free world

About the artist behind Rockin In The Free World Live Acoustic Chords:

Neil Percival Young[1] OM (born November 12, 1945, Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director.

Young's work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and signature nasal tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of claw-hammer acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the linchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock (as heard in songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Harvest Moon" and "Old Man") and electric-charged hard rock (in songs like "Cinnamon Girl", "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)"). In more recent years, Young has started to adopt elements from newer styles of music, such as industrial, alternative country and grunge, the latter of which was profoundly influenced by his own style of playing, often bringing him the title of "the godfather of grunge".

Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), and Greendale (2003).[2]

He is also an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, having co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid, and in 1986 helped found The Bridge School,[3] and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his wife Pegi.

Although Young sings frequently about U.S. legends and myths (Pocahontas, space stations, and the settlement of the American West),[4] he remains a Canadian citizen and has never wanted to relinquish his Canadian citizenship. He has lived in the U.S. for "so long" and has stated, about U.S. elections, that he has "got just as much right to vote in them as anybody else."[5]
