Amazing song by Bob Marley! This song was written by Bob Marley and I particularly like the version sung by Joe Strummer. There is also a beautiful version by Joe Strummer and Johnny Cash on YouTube. To play along the original track of Bob Marley I just take the Capo off. Here’s the guitar chords of Redemption Song.
