Band: Marvin Gaye
Tuning: standard - eBGDAE

So this here is my version of "What's going on", 
the chords are not that basic, 
but I think that they sound alright with this song.  
Should be played loosely to give more of a funky feel to it.

Enjoy!!!

Emaj7                             C#m7
Mother, mother    There's too many of you crying

Emaj7                                            C#m7
Brother, brother, brother    There's far too many of you dying


              F#m11
You know we've got to find a way


              B9sus4
To bring some lovin' here today - Ya


Emaj7                               C#m7
Father, father     We don't need to escalate


        Emaj7                                     C#m7
You see, war is not the answer    For only love can conquer hate


              F#m11
You know we've got to find a way     


              B9sus4
To bring some lovin' here today



F#m11            B9sus4
Picket lines and picket signs



F#m11                 B9sus4
Don't punish me with brutality



F#m11        B9sus4      
Talk to me, so you can see



Emaj7
Oh, what's going on What's going on



C#m7
Ya, what's going on Ah, what's going on


(some sort of break or interlude)
Am
In the mean time   Right on, baby   Right on  Right on 


Emaj7                     C#m7
Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong


     Emaj7                                             C#m7
Oh, but who are they to judge us    Simply because our hair is long


                   F#m11
Oh, you know we've got to find a way


                 B9sus4
To bring some understanding here today
Oh


F#m11            B9sus4
Picket lines and picket signs


F#m11                B9sus4
Don't punish me with brutality


F#m11       B9sus4      
Talk to me, so you can see   Oh!


Emaj7
What's going on   Ya, what's going on


        C#m7
Tell me what's going on

 
              Emaj7       
I'll tell you what's going on - Uh


Am
Right on baby


Right on baby
