Intro: [Dsus2] [D] [Dsus2] [D]

[D] I signed aboard [Em] some sea ships
[A] Just to see the ocean [G] roll [D]
I flew the clouds [Em] and airplanes
[A] Just to satisfy my [G] soul [D]

[D] Up in that big blue [Em] heaven
[A] My hopes can freely [G] roam [D]
I will build my sun[Em]dried brick wall
[A] Where my soul can feel [G] at home [D]

INTERLUDE (with riffs)

[D] My angel, my [Em] darling
[A] When that atom bomb [G] does come [D]
Let me be your [Em] pillow
[A] While this world’s [G] on fire [D]

[D] Wildfire will run [Em] crawling
[A] While the walls will come [G] falling [D]
Lay your head [Em] down
[A] While the world’s on [G] fire [D]

INTERLUDE (with riffs)

[D] When the flames go [Em] creeping
[A] When the smoke plume is [G] leaping [D]
We’ll play like we’re [Em] sleeping [A]
When the world’s on [G] fire [D]

[D] While the skies they are [Em] clearing
[A] We’ll rise up [G] dreaming [D]
Build our cities from the [Em] ashes [A]
Where the world was on [G] fire [D]

INTERLUDE (with riffs)

[D] My angel, my [Em] darling
[A] When that atom bomb [G] does come [D]
Let me be your [Em] pillow
[A] While this world’s [G] on fire [D]
