Well Jo’[Bb]anna,
she runs our [Eb]country.
She runs in [Bb]Durban
and the Trans[F7]vaal.
She makes a [Bb]few
of her people [Eb]happy, [Ebm]oh,
she don’t [Bb]care
about the [F7]rest at [Bb]all.
She’s got a [Bb]system,
they call a[Eb]partheid.
It keeps a [Bb]brother
in a subjec[F7]tion.
But maybe [Bb]pressure
will make Jo’[Eb]anna [Ebm]see,
how every[Bb]body
could a [F7]live as [Bb]one, oh.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo’anna,
[Eb]hope, Jo’anna.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo’anna,
’fore the [F7]morning come.
Ah, gimme [Bb]hope, Jo’anna,
[Eb]hope, Jo’anna.
[Bb]Hope before the [F7]morning [Bb]come.
I hear she [Bb]makes
all the golden [Eb]money,
to buy new [Bb]weapons,
any shape of [F7]guns.
While every [Bb]mother
in our black So[Eb]weto [Ebm]fears,
the [Bb]killing of an[F7]other [Bb]son.
Sneakin’ a[Bb]cross
all the neighbors’ [Eb]borders,
now and a[Bb]gain
having little [F7]fun.
She doesn’t [Bb]care,
if the fun and [Eb]games she [Ebm]play,
is [Bb]dangerous to [F7]ev’ry[Bb]one, oh.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo’anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo’anna.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo’anna,
’fore the [F7]morning come.
Ah, gimme [Bb]hope, Jo’anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo’anna.
[Bb]Hope before the [F7]morning [Bb]come.

She got sup[Bb]porters
in high up [Eb]places,
who turn their [Bb]heads
to the city [F7]sun.
Jo’anna [Bb]give them
the fancy [Eb]money, [Ebm]oh,
to [Bb]tempt any[F7]one who’d [Bb]come.
She even [Bb]knows,
how to swing o[Eb]pinion,
in every [Bb]magazine
and the jour[F7]nals.
For every [Bb]bad move,
that this Jo'[Eb]anna [Ebm]makes,
they got a [Bb]good expla[F7]nat[Bb]ion.
   
Oh.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna,
'fore the [F7]morning come.
Ah, gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
[Bb]Hope before the [F7]morning [Bb]come.
Even the [Bb]preacher,
who works for [Eb]Jesus,
the Archbis[Bb]hop,
who's a peaceful [F7]man,
together [Bb]say,
that the freedom [Eb]fighters [Ebm]will
[Bb]overcome the [F7]very [Bb]strong.
I wanna [Bb]know,
if you're blind Jo'[Eb]anna,
if you [Bb]wanna hear
the sound of [F7]drum.
Can't you [Bb]see,
that the tide is [Eb]turning, [Ebm]oh,
don't make me [Bb]wait,
'til the [F7]morning [Bb]come, oh.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna,
'fore the [F7]morning come.
Ah, gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
[Bb]Hope before the [F7]morning [Bb]come.
                    
Gimme hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna,
'fore the [F7]morning come.
Ah, gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
[Bb]Hope before the [F7]morning [Bb]come.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
Gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna,
'fore the [F7]morning come.
Ah, gimme [Bb]hope, Jo'anna.
Gim[Eb]me hope, Jo'anna.
[Bb]Hope before the [F7]morning [Bb]come.
