[Verse 1]
D           G D
When I was 17
               Em
I saw a magazine
             D#            D
It had those English Boys
                G   D
Who had long hair
           G          D
When I was on my own
              G
They moved into my town
           Em              D
And I just called them up
                  G
And they'd be there

G        D
In 1969
                Em
I had a lousy time
           D#           D
I listened to the songs
              G              D
Read letters sent from Nam

D             G                 D
Now peace and love were gone
           G
The tired soldiers home
        Em      D
Ideal society
                 G
Gunned down the 70s

        C                  D
Does it feel the same to you?
            C               D
Why do you act the way you do?
        C               D
Pack it up or pack it in
                Em
There's no excuse

[Chorus]
          C                   D
Could the hands of time reverse?
          C                  D
Would we wake or take the ride
    C                        D
And again speak with one voice?

[Verse 2]
D            G           D
We knew each other well
            Em
Although we never met
         D#             D
Messages passed to tell
            G  D
Equal respect

D                  G   D
Coincidence recurred
          G
I had to laugh a lot
          Em             D
One week hung up superb
             G
Said maybe not

[Chorus]
        C                  D
Does it feel the same to you?
            C               D
Why do you act the way you do?
        C               D
Pack it up or pack it in
                Em
There's no excuse

          C                   D
Could the hands of time reverse?
          C                  D
Would we wake or take the ride
    C                        D
And again speak with one voice?
