Bread For The Body Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson
G F G I built my own chains in the land of the free A7 D7 A slave to a job that meant nothing to me G F G With three shiny new cars and a split-level home F G To furnish the tomb I was dying to own
C Then one day I wakened with fear in my eye G D7 Aware of a world that was passing me by G F G And I knew that my savings of silver and gold F G Would mean not a thing when my body was cold
C G Because life is a song for the dying to sing A7 D7 It’s got to have feeling to mean anything G C G And a man can get by without silver or gold F G With bread for the body and song for the soul
F G I’m living my life by the lesson I’ve learned A7 D7 And not looking back at the bridges I’ve burned G F G Cause the time that we travel from cradle to grave F G Was meant to be spent and not meant to be saved
C And I know there are some who will say I’m a fool G D7 But I don’t give a damn for the people that do G F G Cause if down in a dungeon is where they belong F G Well that’s their misfortune and none of my own
