I’m Free From the Chain Gang Now by Johnny Cash Ukulele Chords


Capo 1st Fret

Hey Folks! The pull-on-offy stuff is fairly intuitive, basically it centers around the top two strings and involves a pull
off on the B string: 0-1-3 between the G and C chords, and that same but reverse a hammer on: 0-1-3, before you play the G
chord. Listen to it and you’ll get the feel of it. The actual chord figuring out was the tricky part for me and I am not
sure about the G/C or the G/Dish chord that I transcribed, but it works.

G/Dish
-0-
[-3-]
[-2-]-0-
[-2-]-0-

I got rid of the shackles that bound me
and the guards that were a[G/C]lways around me
There were tears on the mail mother wrote me in jail
G G/Dish G
But I’m free from the chain gang now

All the years I was known and respected
’til one day I was wrongly[G/C] suspected
I was shackled in chains in a cold freezin’ rain
G G/Dish G
but I’m free from the chain gang now

(Guitar)

All the years I was known by a number
how I kept my mi[G/C]nd is a wonder
But like a bird in a tree I got my liberty
G G/Dish G
and I’m free from the chain gang now

I got rid of the shackles that bound me
and the guards that were a[G/C]lways around me

There were tears on the mail mother sent me in jail
G G/Dish G
But I’m free from the chain gang now

There were tears on the mail mother sent me in jail
G G/Dish G
But I’m free from the chain gang now
