Intro  Em / Bm / D / Em / x 6
 
Verse 1
             Am        Em    G  Am
Take all the Metal and Wood
            Am     Em   G  Am
Used in the waging war
              Am       Em         G      Am
And teach the men that make those weapons
         Am      Em      G    Am
To build shelter for the poor
 
Verse 2
Take all the money we spend
On the way that we appear
Find the ones that die of hunger

And help them to see another year
 
Chorus:
Am  Em      G     Am
  Before we fade away
Am      Em     G      Am
  Let's make a better day
Am     Em         G       Am
  This world will keep on turning
  Em    Bm     D--          Em
  After we are gone... long gone.
 
Solo: Em / Bm / D / Bm / x 4
 
Verse 3
There is a forest I loved
Where the air was fresh and clean
We took the forest for a factory
So we could build some more machines
 
Verse 4
When I was young I learned to sing
And music blossomed in my soul
We took the music from the schools
And left the darkest, gaping holes.
 
Chorus:
Am    Em       G        Am
Where will our children be?
Am Em         G        Am
If they don't learn to see?
Am          Em             G                   Am
Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone
 
Bridge:
     Am      Em    G                 Am
When we were young all the world was new
    Am      Em        G              Am              Am
But soon we found the childhood fairytale were never true
 
Verse 5
And how the story ends depends on you and me
Where will our children be? If they don't learn to see?
Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone
 
Outro:
Before we fade away
Let's make a better day
This world will keep on turning
After we are gone after you are gone.
Em    Bm     D--          Em
After we are gone... long gone.
