***CAPO 1***


I've wept for those who suffer long
But how I weep for those who've gone
In rooms of grief and questioned wrong
Am          D       Am
But keep on killing

It's in the soul to feel such things
But weak to watch without speaking
Oh, what mercy sadness brings
Am        D        Am
If God be willing


Am         C
There is a train that's heading straight
C           Am   F            C
To Heaven's gate, to Heaven's gate
And on the way child and man
C         Am  F           D
And woman wait, watch and wait
D              Am
For redemption day

(Verses same as before)

Fire rages in the streets
And swallows everything it meets
It's just an image often seen
On television

Come leaders, come ye men of great
Let us hear you pontificate
Your many virtues laid to waste
And we aren't listening

(Repeat Chorus)


D           C                F
What do you have for us today
D          C                 Am
Throw us a bone but save the plate
D         C                 F
On why we waited till so late
F                        D
Was there no oil to excavate
D                          F
No riches in trade for the fate
F                           D
Of every person who died in hate
D                           Am
Throw us a bone, you men of great

(Repeat Chorus)

D           C             F
It's buried in the countryside
D         C                Am
Exploding in the shells at night
D         C            F
It's everywhere a baby cries
F         D  F         D  Am
