Lee Kernaghan  -  Freedom Road

By axehappy  -  axehappy at countrytabs.com


This song is actually played in Dropped-D tuning, but I've tabbed it in standard
tuning to make things easier.


D     =   xx0232                                   A     =   x02220

G     =   320003                                   D/F#  =   2x0232

Em    =   022000                                   Bm    =   x24432

F#m   =   244222                                   


**************************************************************************************



        D                          A                     D
I guess everybody knew the way the sergeant knocked her 'round,
                                 G     D/F#   Em
But he laid down the law in that dusty cattle town.
    D                                   A                     Bm
The front bar just fell silent when she begged him 'please no more',
    G           D             A                  D
But no-one interfered when he slapped her to the floor.



      D                                        A                 D
But a young man watched the sergeant leave and knelt down by her side,
                                        G        D/F#   Em
And a lost love was re-kindled when she held him in her eyes.
            D                      A                  Bm
And in that unexpected moment, two hearts were takin' flight,
   G                   D            A             D
As down that moonlight highway they sped into the night.



        D             G                   D
Freedom road, they're leavin' this town behind.
        F#m              G                   A
Freedom road, there's no turning 'round this time.
               D    G                 D
There's no way back when two worlds explode,
        Em        D/F#      G       A       D
They're somewhere out there on that freedom road.



     D                                          A              D
They reached the three ways roadhouse, took the Barkley to the east,
                                        G       D/F#   Em
They'd head across to Queensland, get a job out on the reef.
     D                                    A                Bm
Then in the rear view mirror they saw the sergeant close behind,
      G                    D              A                D
Their hearts were pounding harder as they neared the borderline.



        D             G                   D
Freedom road, they're leavin' this town behind.
        F#m              G                   A
Freedom road, there's no turning 'round this time.
               D    G                 D
There's no way back when two worlds explode,
        Em        D/F#      G       A       Bm
They're somewhere out there on that freedom road.



Bm   G   D   F#m   G   A   D   G   D  Em  D/F#  G  A  D
INSTRUMENTAL



        D                                   A              D
For the first time in her life, there was a freedom in the wind,
                                            G          D/F#      Em
So when they saw the roadblock, 'Don't slow down', she begged of him.
     D                                       A              Bm
They rolled and then burst into flames, they didn't stand a chance,
       G                 D            A                            D     
In the stillness of that ghostly dawn, they reached their promised land.



        D             G                    D
Freedom road, they're leaving this world behind.
        F#m              G                   A
Freedom road, there's no turning 'round this time.
               D    G                 D
There's no way back when two worlds explode,
        Em        D/F#      G       A       Bm
They're somewhere out there on that freedom road.
        G                    D
They're leavin' this world behind.
        F#m              G                   A
Freedom road, there's no turning 'round this time.
               D    G                 D
There's no way back when two worlds explode,
        Em        D/F#      G       A       D
They're somewhere out there on that freedom road.
