Redemption Road
(Tom Paxton & Geoff Bartley)


(Intro) G Bm Am D/F# Dm/F Em D7/F# G


         G             Bm
Paid the man all he was owed
          Am             D/F#
Tipped my hat and walked away
          Dm7/F            Em
Down that sweet redemption road
       D7/F#         G
Put it down to yesterday


       C       D/F#   Em
Come redemption my old friend
D/F#    C                D/F#
When the seeds of life are sowed
         G             C
Come and lead me to the end
       D/F#             G
Of that sweet redemption road


(Break) G Bm Am D/F# Am G D7/F# G


       G               Bm
Looking back I can't complain
       Am             D/F#
I took out what I put in
       Am               G
Days of snow and days of rain
      D7/F#          G
And redemption in the end


       C       D/F#   Em
Come redemption my old friend
D/F#    C                D/F#
When the seeds of life are sowed
         G             C
Come and lead me to the end
       D/F#             G
Of that sweet redemption road


    C       D/F# Em
Only time and time alone
D/F#       C             D/F#
Treats each weary soul the same
       G               C
When my sum of days has flown
      D/F#             G
Time alone will know my name
       G               C
When my sum of days has flown
      D/F#             G
Time alone will know my name


(Outro) G C D7/F# G

Based on a concert performance of Tom Paxton which can be found on YouTube. Truly a beautiful song.

The song (with lyrics) was first recorded by Anne Hills in 2012.
