I Shall Be Released – Bob Dylan

 

G2                                              Am2     Bm1            Am1                   G2

They say ev'rything can be replaced, … yet ev'ry distance is not near.

So I remember ev'ry face, of ev'ry man who put me here.
I see my light come shining, from the west down to the east.
Any day now, any day now, I shall be released.

They say ev'ry man needs protection. They say ev'ry man must fall.
Yet I swear I see my reflection, some place so high above this wall.
I see my light come shining, from the west down to the east.
Any day now, any day now, I shall be released.
 
Down here next to me in this lonely crowd, there’s a man who swears he's not to blame.
All day long I hear him cry so loud, callin’ out that he’s been framed.
I see my light come shining, from the west down to the east.
Any day now, any day now, I shall be released.
