Phil Ochs – What Are You Fighting For chords

Chords
Transpose:
C F EmOh you tell me that there's danger to the land you call your own
F Em AmAnd you watch them build the war machine right beside your home
C F EmAnd you tell me that you're ready to go marchin' to the war
Dm G7 CI know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
C F EmBefore you pack your rifle and sail across the sea
F Em AmJust think upon the Southern part of the land that you call free
C F EmOh, there's many kinds of slavery and we've found many more
Dm G7 CI know you're set for fightin', but what are you fighting for?
C F EmAnd before you walk out on your job in answer to the call
F Em AmJust think about the millions who have no job at all
C F EmAnd the men who wait for handouts with their eyes upon the floor
Dm G7 COh I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
C F EmTurn on your TV, turn it on so loud
F Em AmAnd watch the fool a smiling there and tell me that you're proud
C F EmAnd listen to your radio, the noise it starts to pour
Dm G7 COh I know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
C F EmRead your morning papers, read every single line
F Em AmAnd tell me if you can believe that simple world you find
C F EmRead every slanted word till your eyes are getting sore,
Dm G7 CI know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
C F EmAnd listen to your leaders, the ones who won the race
F Em AmAs they stand right there before you and lie into your face
C F EmIf you ever try to buy them, you know what they stand for
Dm G7 CI know you're set for fighting, but what are you fighting for?
C F EmPut ragged clothes upon your back and sleep upon the ground,
F Em AmAnd tell police about your rights as they drag you down,
C F EmAnd ask them as they lead you to some deserted door,
Dm G7 CYes, I know you're set for fightin', but what are you fightin' for?
C F EmBut the hardest thing I'll ask you, if you will only try
F Em AmIs take your children by their hands and look into their eyes
C F EmAnd there you'll see the answer you should have seen before
Dm G7 CIf you'll win the wars at home, there'll be no fighting anymore
