            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


                 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)


            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
