A A D D
Well Jo'anna she runs a country
A A E E
She runs in Durban and the Transvaal
A A D D
She makes a few of her people happy, oh
A A E E
She don't care about the rest at all
A A D D
She's got a system they call apartheid
A A E E
It keeps a brother in a subjection
A A D D
But maybe pressure can make Jo'anna see
A A E E A A
How everybody could a live as one

A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
E E
'Fore the morning come
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A E E A A
Hope before the morning com

A A D D
I hear she make all the golden money
A A E E
To buy new weapons, any shape of guns
A A D D
While every mother in black Soweto fears
A A E E
The killing of another son
A A D D
Sneakin' across all the neighbours' borders
A A E E
Now and again having little fun
A A D D
She doesn't care if the fun and games she play
A A E E A A
Is dang'rous to ev'ryone

A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
E E
'Fore the morning come
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A E E A A
Hope before the morning com

A A D D
She's got supporters in high up places
A A E E
Who turn their heads to the city sun
A A D D
Jo'anna give them the fancy money
A A E E
Oh to tempt anyone who'd come
A A D D
She even knows how to swing opinion
A A E E
In every magazine and the journals
A A D D
For every bad move that this Jo'anna makes
A A E E A A
They got a good explanation

A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
E E
'Fore the morning come
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A E E A A
Hope before the morning com

A A D D
Even the preacher who works for Jesus
A A E E
The Archbishop who's a peaceful man
A A D D
Together say that the freedom fighters
A A E E
Will overcome the very strong
A A D D
I wanna know if you're blind Jo'anna
A A E E
If you wanna hear the sound of drums
A A D D
Can't you see that the tide is turning
A A E E A A
Oh don't make me wait till the morning come

A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna
D D
Hope, Jo'anna
A A
Gimme hope, Jo'anna

'Fore the morning come

Hope before the morning com
