I Come And Stand At Every Door chords
The Byrds  1966 (poem by Nazim Hikmet)

  D        C        C/A   D
I come and stand at every door,
           C        C/A    D
but no one hears my silent prayer
  G         A            D
I knock and yet remain unseen,
    Em             C    D   Dsus4 D
for I am dead, for I am dead

    D    C     C/A        D
I'm only seven although I died,
       C     C/A   D
in Hiroshima long ago
    G     A            D
I'm seven now as I was then,
     Em                C      D   Dsus4 D
when children die they do not grow

   D        C             C/A      D
My hair was scorched by a swirling flame,
             C       C/A       D
my eyes grew dim, my eyes grew blind
      G        A                  D
Death came and turned my bones to dust,
    Em                 C      D   Dsus4 D
and that was scattered by the wind

  D       C        C/A     D
I need no fruit, I need no rice,
          C          C/A  D
I need no sweets nor even bread
  G               C     D
I ask for nothing for myself,
    Em             C    D   Dsus4 D
for I am dead, for I am dead

D          C      C/A      D
All that I ask is that for peace,
            C        C/A     D
you fight today, you fight today
G           A                D
So that the children of this world,
    Em                C         D   Dsus4 D
may live and grow and laugh and play
