Am
Paul and Silas bound in jail

Had no money to go their bail
	   Dm           Em
Keep your eyes on the prize
     Am
Hold on


Paul and Silas thought 
they was lost
Dungeon shook and
the chains come off
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on


Freedom’s name is mighty sweet
And soon we’re gonna meet
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on


I Got my hand on a gospel plow
Won't take nothing for my journey now
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on


Only chain that a man can stand
Is that chain o’hand on hand
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on


I’m gonna board that big Greyhound
Carry the lover from town to town
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on


	  C	      Am
Hold on, Hold on
	   Dm           Em
Keep your eyes on the prize
     Am
Hold On


The only thing I did was wrong
Was stayin’ in the wilderness too long
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on


The only thing we did was right
Was the day we started to fight
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on

Hold on, Hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize 
Hold on
(3x)

Ain’t been to heaven but I been told
Streets up there are paved with gold



 Am  Dm  Em
