The queen of hearts is always your best bet

Freedom oh freedom is just some people talking 
            A           Fm        Bm            E7        A
Your prison is walking hrough this world all alone
                  D                         Am4                Bbm                             A             A7 
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time the sky won't show and the sun won't shine
        Fm                  Bm                E     A
 It's hard to tell the night time from the day

        A     A7                        D                 Dm
