Intro:

D  G, D  A (x2)

Verse 1:

D             D/C#
 Man made the buildings,
     Bm            G    D/F#  Em
That reach for the sky.
    D            D/C#
And man made the motorcar,
    Bm             G      D/F#  Em
And learned how to drive.

Bridge 1:

       Bm              A
But he didn't make the flowers,
       G               D
And he didn't make the trees.

D  Dsus4  D, D  Dsus4  D

       Bm          A
And he didn't make you,
       G           D
And he didn't make me.

D  Dsus4  D, D  Dsus4  D

         Em     F#m
And he's got no right,
   G    D/F# Em      A
To turn us   into ma-chines.

A  Asus4  A, Asus4  A

Chorus 1:

     D      G        A
He's got no right at all,
     D      G         A
'Cos we are all God's children.
         D      G
And he's got no right,
   A
To change us.
       Em       F#m
Oh, we gotta go back,
       G   D/F# Em
To the way the  good lord,
Asus4 A  D   Dsus4, D  Dsus4
 Made us all.

Break:

Em
 Don't want this,
F#m
 World to change me,
  G
I wanna go back the way,
    D
The good lord made me.
Em
 Same lungs that,
   F#m
He gave me to breathe with
G
 Same eyes he gave me,
   Asus4 A
To see   with.

Verse 2:

        D             D/C#
Oh, the rich man, the poor man,
    Bm            G       D/F#  Em
The saint and the sinner.
    D             D/C#
The wise man, the simpleton,
    Bm            G      D/F#  Em
The loser and the winner.

Bridge 2:

Bm      A
 We are all,
    G       D    Dsus4  D, D  Dsus4  D
The same to Him,
Em               F#m
 Stripped of our clothes,
    G   D/F#
And all... 
    Em        A    Asus4  A, Asus4  A
The things we own.

Chorus 2:

    D        G      A
The day that we are born,
D       G         A
 We are all God's children.
         D      G
And he's got no right,
   A
To change us.
       Em       F#m
Oh, we gotta go back,
       G   D/F#
To the way the,
Em         Asus4  A
 Good lord made...

 Made us all,
    G      A       D
And we are all his children.

And he's got no right,

To change us.
