---  People Have The Power  ---
                              Patti Smith

Intro    – 	D	G	D	G   …

   	       D			   G
1.	 I was dreaming in my dreaming 
	D		G
of an aspect bright and fair 
	D	       G
and my sleeping it was broken 
        D		 G	
but my dream it lingered near 
	D		G
in the form of shining valleys 
	   D	    G	
where the pure air recognized 
       D	    G
and my senses newly opened 
   D		  G
I awakened to the cry 
 	  F#m		     G	
that the people / have the power 
     D		 	A
to redeem / the work of fools 
	 F#m		   G
upon the meek / the graces shower 
     D		          A
it's decreed / the people rule 

				                               
                                D       G
The people have the power 
				Em	A
The people have the power 
				D	G
The people have the power 
				Em	A
The people have the power 


(Same chords as verse 1)

2.	Vengeful aspects became suspect 
and bending low as if to hear 
and the armies ceased advancing 
because the people had their ear 
and the shepherds and the soldiers 
lay beneath the stars 
exchanging visions 
and laying arms 
to waste / in the dust 
in the form of / shining valleys 
where the pure air / recognized 
and my senses / newly opened 
I awakened / to the cry 


Refrain 


3. 	Where there were deserts 
I saw fountains 
like cream the waters rise 
and we strolled there together 
with none to laugh or criticize 
and the leopard 
and the lamb 
lay together truly bound 
I was hoping in my hoping 
to recall what I had found 
I was dreaming in my dreaming 
god knows / a purer view 
as I surrender to my sleeping 
I commit my dream to you 


Refrain

		      D		G	
4.	The power to dream / to rule
   Em			    A		
to wrestle the world from fools
	   D		     G		
well it’s decreed the people rule
	    Em		       A		
well it’s decreed the people rule
LISTEN
D			G
I believe everything we dream
    Em			     A	
Can come to pass through our union
	D		G	
We can turn the world around
	Em		A
We can turn the earth’s revolution
	
Refrain


D	G
Power
Em	A
Power
			D		G	
People have the power
Em	A
Power

People have the power to dream… (spoken)
