Key of D. TWO CHORDS. I - V7. real good with 3 singers.
DWe gotta stand a little closer to what it is were leanin on
DWho was it that first said it? Could it be he could be wrong
A7About the pilgrims and the natives
Having dinner on the lawn?
DI think if I was ever king I would buy a censorship
DWhere the only books upon the shelves Were the ones that I had written
A7Oh, and put them up in borders, set my photo down the spine
DTo tell the story of the livin without forgettin those whod died
A7And I would die a happy man Cause I did the best that I could do
DTo find a better way of leading, Should we leave that up to you?
DWho was the one that said it, Yeah the one who said it best?
A7You got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones who are still left
And we gotta stand a little closer
To the lessons that weve learned
Is it just a premonition?
Could we really get ourselves both burned?
Ive been sent here on a mission to find what we agree upon
We dont agree about September,
Could we agree on Vietnam?
I think if I was ever publisher Id buy a pirate ship
Where the mission at each position is to shoot and to click
Clean the photos up a little, censor the ship out of it
So when we put it up in borders, turn a profit on the trip
Charge the public for the overhead of 1492
And if they need a better reason tell them we got livin proof
And I would die a happy man
Cause I did the best that I could do
To find a better way of leading,
Should we leave that up to you
Who was it that said it?
Yeah thats what Im trying to say
You got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones that live today
