The Prisoner's Anthem song lyrics and guitar chords. Written by Gerry O' Glacain and recorded by The Irish Brigade. Also recorded by Gary Óg and The Players Brigade. The tune used for the song is The Rose as sung by Bette Midler and was written by Amanda McBroom. There at least 3 versions of this on youtube. I usually choose the one that was either first recorded or by the singer / band that wrote the song.

Chorus
Let[D] us sing a Prisoners an[A]them
Let it e[G]cho through the [D]cells
All along the halls and [A]land[A7]ings
Let our hearts [G]and voices [D]swell
let [D]us sing of home [A]and loved [A7]ones
And [G]the things that keep us [D]sane
Of the friends who will be[D] waiting
When [G]we all walk free[D] again
Chorus
Well there's a part that can't be captured
In every woman and in every man
For the spirit cannot be shackled
Although they chain our feet and hands
Chorus
So come all ye screws and warders
Don't you think that it's a crime?
Although you do your best to break us
We still stand as we do our time
