   G
 I used to be a rolling stone, you know 
 If the cause was right
     A7                Bb     Am7    G    C/D
 I'd leave to find the answer on the road 
   G
 I used to be a heart beating for someone 
 But the times have changed
A7                    Bb      Am7       G
   The less I say the more my work gets done 
 
____Chorus:
 
          C                     F/C  C       G
 'Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom 
          C              F/C       C         G
 From the day that I was born I've waved the flag 
 F7                           E7             Am7
 Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man 
 F7            E7                 Eb         C
 Yeah, gave me peace of mind my daddy never had 
 G                               C    G/B
 Philadelphia freedom, shine on me, I love you 
         Am7               G/B         A7/C#       D     B7sus  B7
 Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind 
Em                Am7
   Shine a light, shine a light

 If you choose to you can live your life alone 
 Some people choose the city
                                                   A7
                           (Some people choose the city)

 Some others choose the good old family home

 G
 I like living easy without family ties (living easy)
                                   A7
 Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me 
 Bb       Am7       G
 Right between the eyes
