Over the next few years, he wrote a number of fantastic songs, some of which have become classics. He formed the Group The Equals in the 1960s and later had a successful solo career. His real name is Edmond Montague Grant. Since the 1970’s, Eddy Grant has released several albums on which he wrote and performed every note of the music, in addition to recording it in his own studio and issuing it on his own record label. Grant openly used his songwriting for political purposes, as in Police on My Back and later Gimme Hope Jo'anna about the then-current apartheid regime of South Africa. Eddy Grant’s classic work remains as popular as ever today and has been covered by many successful artists. Also see: Easy Guitar Tabs: Spice Girls.

Girl the way you go

With all of the guys on the corner
Oh baby, you're the latest trick
Oh, you seem to have their number
Look they're dancing still

Baby now the party's over
For us, so I'll be on my way
Now that the things which moved me
Are standing still

I know it's only superstition
Baby, but I won't look back
Even though I feel your music
Baby that is that
G  D  Em  G  D...
I don't wanna dance
Dance with you baby no more
I'll never do something to hurt you, though
Oh but the feeling is bad
The feeling is bad

Oh but the feeling is bad
The feeling is bad

Easy Guitar Tabs : Eddy Grant – Gimme Hope Joanna


Intro: A  D  A  E  (2x)
             A                      D
Well Jo'anna she runs a country
                   A                      E
She runs in Durban and the Transvaal
                     A                         D
She makes a few of her people happy, oh
                A                    E        A
She don't care about the rest at all
A  D  A  E...
She's got a system they call apartheid
It keeps a brother in a subjection
But maybe pressure will make Jo'anna see
How everybody could a live as one
              A                    D
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
              A                                     E
Gimme hope, Jo'anna 'Fore the morning come
              A                    D
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
A                          E             A
Hope before the morning come
A  D  A  E...
I hear she makes all the golden money
To buy new weapons, any shape of guns
While every mother in black Soweto fears
The killing of another son
A  D  A  E...
Sneakin' across all the neighbours' borders
Now and again having little fun
She doesn't care if the fun and games she play
Is dang'rous to ev'ryone
A  D  A  E...
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
Gimme hope, Jo'anna 'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
Hope before the morning come

A  D  A  E...
She got supporters in high up places
Who turn their heads to the city sun
Jo'anna give them the fancy money
Oh to tempt anyone who'd come
A  D  A  E...
She even knows how to swing opinion
In every magazine and the journals
For every bad move that this Jo'anna makes
They got a good explanation
A  D  A  E...
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
Gimme hope, Jo'anna 'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
Hope before the morning come

A  D  A  E...
Even the preacher who works for Jesus
The Archbishop who's a peaceful man
Together say that the freedom fighters
Will overcome the very strong
A  D  A  E...
I wanna know if you're blind Jo'anna
If you wanna hear the sound of drum
Can't you see that the tide is turning
Oh don't make me wait till the morning come
A  D  A  E...
Do give hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
Gimme hope, Jo'anna 'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Jo'anna, hope, Jo'anna
Hope before the morning come
