[Verse]
Am                   Em         D                Am
New blood joins this earth and quickly he's sub-dued.
                         Em         D                      Am
Through constant pain disgrace, the young boy learns their rules.
                          Em      D                 Am
With time the child draws in this whipping boy done wrong.
                    Em
Deprived of all his thoughts,
    D                   Am
the young man struggles on and on.
                C
He knows, oo, a vow unto
    G        C               G
his own that never from this day
    C                  G    E
his will they'll take away.


[Chorus]
Am          C               G
  What I've felt, what I've known
      Em                          Am
never shined through in what I've shown.
      C         G          E                   Am
Never be. Never see. Won't see what might have been.
          C               G
What I've felt, what I've known,
      Em                          Am
never shined through in what I've shown.
      C           G        E            Am
Never free. Never me. So I dub the unforgiven.


[Verse]
     Am             Em       D              Am
They dedicate their lives to running all of his
                        Em        D             Am
He tries to please them all, this bitter man he is
                        Em         D              Am
Throughout the life the same, he's battled constantly
                     Em     D              Am
This fight he cannot win. A tired man they see no longer cares.
    C            G           C            G
The old man then prepares to die regretfully
     C               G   E
That old man here is me.


[Chorus]
Am          C               G
  What I've felt, what I've known
      Em                          Am
never shined through in what I've shown.
      C         G          E                   Am
Never be. Never see. Won't see what might have been.
          C               G
What I've felt, what I've known,
      Em                          Am
never shined through in what I've shown.
      C           G        E            Am
Never free. Never me. So I dub the unforgiven.

      C         G          E                   Am
Never be. Never see. Won't see what might have been.
          C               G
What I've felt, what I've known,
      Em                          Am
never shined through in what I've shown.
      C           G        E            Am   C     G  E
Never free. Never me. So I dub the unforgiven, oh, oh
