Gaye Marvin – Mercy Mercy Me tab ver. 2

From: (Elson R. Trinidad)

Yup, it's "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" by Marvin Gaye. That and
"What's Goin' On" are very similar. Heh, I was once in a band that played
the two songs as a medley!

The chord progression is: E  C#m7  F#  B7

I know the lyrics by heart:

Whoa, oh mercy mercy me
Things aint what they used to be oh no
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind that blows
From the north and south and east
Oh mercy mercy me
Things aind what they used to be no no
Oil wasted on the oceans and upon our seas
Fish full of mercury
Oh, mercy mercy me
Oh Things ain't what they used to be oh no
Radiation underground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby all die
Oh mercy mercy me
Things ain't what they used to be 
What about this overcrowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?

This song was written in 1970, I believe. Marvin Gaye also wrote "Inner City
Blues." Those songs are still relevant today. The man was clearly ahead of
his time.
