                A                         E                     D
    Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day

                  A                             E                  D
    And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf

                                  A                          E                     D
    But let me tell you I got some news for you, and you'll soon find out it's true

                             A                     E                           D
    And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself

    Chorus:

                     A    E           D

    'Cause I'm al   -   ready gone

                 A    E         D
    And I'm fee  -  lin' strong

             A  E                     D
    I will si  -  ng this vict'ry song

                   A            E                 D

    Woo–hoo hoo,  na-na, woo–hoo hoo


            A                      E                          D

    The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why
              A                                E                       D

    But I guess you felt like you had to set things right
    A                          E                             D

    Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky
                  A                           E                   D

    You can see the stars and still not see the light (that's right)

    Chorus

                A                       E                            D
    Well I know it wasn't you who held me down

                   A                        E                       D
    Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free

         A                         E                 D
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains

                 A                     E                         D
    And we never even know we have the key

    Chorus

            D   A                     G
    I will si  -  ng this vict'ry song

                     D   A            G

    ‘Cause I'm al   -   ready gone
