                Bangladesh/ Joan Baez

    Am        E        C         G
Bangladesh, Bangladesh, Bangladesh, Bangladesh.

        F           C               G              Am
When the sun sinks in the west, die a million people of the Bangladesh.

    Am         E         C                 G
The story of Bangladesh is an ancient one, again made fresh
   E               F                    C                G
          Am              E          (B string:B,D,C,B)
which say ,to sacrifice a people for a land. 

Chorus: Bangladesh...

Once again, we stand aside and watch the families crucified,
see a teenage mother's vacant eyes as she watches her feeble baby try
to fight the monsoon rains and cholera flies.

And the students at the university, asleep at night quite peacefully;
the soldiers came and shot them in their beds,
and terror took the dawn awakening shrieks of dread,
and silent frozen forms, and pillows drenched in red.

Chorus: Bangladesh...

Did you read about the army officer's plea, the donors' blood was-it given willingly,
no time to comprehend, and there was little pain.

And so the story of Bangladesh is an ancient one, again made fresh,
which say to sacrifice a people for a land.

chorus: Bangladesh...
