Music is a universal language, and needs not be translated. With it soul speaks to soul
Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
B A E
E B A ELaBtely mother earth has bAeen feeling unsatEisfied, IB'd say it's plain from the rAain the sweet lady's staErted to cry, FBires crackle and blAaze in the rays of her buErning heart, and I don't thEink it's smart to, LBay and wait for the dAay that she dies iEn our arms. We gotta Edo something, We gotta Bdo something, BefAore mother earth gets anymore hurt, We gEotta do something! From what I've read there's a lotta bad stuff in the world today, It's been said it's getting rough to find a place where the children play, So, Mr Prime Minister and Mr President you better see that it's not only me, no, our mob is rising in size, and they've been dying to scream out to you! You gotta Edo something, We gotta dBo something, SometAimes I sit in my room and I don't know what to do, but we've gEotta do something! It's time to Edo something, Someone should Bdo something, We goAtta do something, and that someone is yEou, and you and you and you! C I pray itB ain't all lost andE gone, C I pray we mBight learn right from wrEong, C and I pray this brBoken day, will nEot last too lCong, I pray that you believe my sEong ... Darlin'! All time: E, B, A You know I'm sorry if this is hard for you to take, But a lot of it just needs saying, and I don't see anyone else out there, giving out this message, and if I don't do this, Who's gonna do it? And maybe, if someone hears these words, maybe the whole world gets round and listens, to what I'm sayin', and maybe we have a chance. Because I don't wanna see another child crying, I don't wanna see another dog dying in the streets, I can't see another homeless man, because it doesn't seem right to me, He's got a home, and he's not got a home, What's the point in that? Why can't we all just get together, in one big home, and if I was in Government, Then I'd Government things much more differentlier, because it ain't the best way to government things, So there's poor people everywhere, You know I would just be sittin' alone, Thinkin' "How can I do something?", 'Cos I ain't gonna be in chains no-more, You lot might have been conned, but I ain't been conned, 'Cos I'm a free man, I'm free, and I'm gonna let my soul soar, and the way I do that is through my music, so why don't you do something?
