Intro:(Listen to recording for strumming pattern) A5 (strum)
Verse 1:(* = Palm muted continuously until chord change) A5* I was lost, I am found, all the building's are burnt to the ground D5 A5 I can't stay, I can't leave, I can't do no nothing not a thing A5* Do you see your son out on the street? D5 A5 Is that a gun or just the Father that he needs? A5* Do you cry, do you weep? Do you see the World as only tragedy?
Pre-chorus:Note: Each chord is strummed once; then 5 muted harmonics are played quickly between each chord. To do this, keep your pointer finger lightly touching the E string on the 3rd fret and strum away. You'll hear the same sound as on the CD. G5 G5 G5 G5 In the early mornin' there were revelations in my mind G5 G5 G5 G5 I can hear the masters cryin' out from their graves most every night
Chorus 1:F5 C5 Bring the people together F5 C5 Bring the people together
Verse 2:(* = Palm muted continuously until chord change) A5* It's a crime, this dark time D5 A5 We wait for presidents who never turn the tide A5* I find it hard, I find it strange D5 A5 Go to the movies, have Picasso paint your cage A5* I've had enough, I think I'm done So sell me down the river, I'll be waiting there in love
Chorus 2:F5 C5 Bring the people together F5 C5 A5 Bring the people together.... Yeah F5 C5 Bring the people together F5 C5 A5 Bring the people together.... Yeah
(Continue strumming A5 into bridge)
