[VERSE 1]
D                            G        A     D
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
          G          A                D
When the world must come together as one
          Bm
There are people dying
             F#m                   
And it's time to lend a hand
G
To life
                      A
The greatest gift of all 

D              G          A      D
We can't go on pretending day by day
         G        A                    D
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
      Bm                  F#m
We're all a part of God's great big family
        G
And the truth
         G/B              A
You know love is all we need


[CHORUS]
            G   A               D   
We are the world, we are the children
            G                       A                  D
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving
          Bm                       F#m
There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives 
     G                        A                D
It's true we'll make a better day just you and me 


[VERSE 2]
D                      A             
Well, send'em you your heart 
        G                 D
So they know that someone cares
          G          A               D
And their lives will be stronger and free
   Bm                  F#m
As God has shown us, by turning stone to bread
G                   G/B            A
And so we all, must lend a helping hand


[CHORUS]
            G   A               D   
We are the world, we are the children
            G                       A                  D
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving
          Bm                       F#m
There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives 
     G                        A                D
It's true we'll make a better day just you and me 


[BRIDGE]
              A#                 C              D
When you're down and out there seems no hope at all 
              A#                 C              D
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall 
                        Bm             F#m
Well, well, well, let's realize that a change can only come 
     G
When we
                  A
Stand together as one


[CHORUS x3-5]
            G   A               D   
We are the world, we are the children
            G                       A                  D
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving
          Bm                       F#m
There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives 
     G                        A                D
It's true we'll make a better day just you and me
