Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse]
DWhy do I lie awake at night
G DThink back as for as I can
Em D/F#To the sound of my father's life outdoors
G AAt the thought of Sputnik in free flight
DBefore I could fashion my poverty
G DBefore I distrusted the night
EmMust've known something
D/F#I must've known something
G AI live for those times tonight
[Chorus]
DWhy why why
G AWhy mama why
D GWhy can't I sleep in peace tonight
D A BmUnderneath the satellite sky
[Verse]
DIt can't be easy for the children
G DI'm hollow before my time
Em D/F#It looks like a desert here to me
G AWhere's the promise of youth for my child
DWhere are the faraway kingdoms of dreams
G DWe've been to the moon, there's trouble at home
Em D/F#Vanished in the mist with St Nicholas and
G AThe ghettos and war zones
[Chorus]
DWhy why why
G AOh Why mama why
D GWhy can't I sleep in peace tonight
D A BmUnderneath the satellite sky
[Chorus]
DOh why why why
G AOh why mama why
D GWhy can't I sleep in peace tonight
D A BmUnderneath the satellite sky
[Verse]
DI want to stand out in the middle of the street
G DAnd listen to the stars
Em D/F#I want to hear their sweet voices
G AI want to feel the big bang rattle my bones
DLaugh with the children
G DI want the spark to ignite
Em D/F#Before we find out just what it means
G ATo be born into these times
[Chorus]
DWhy why why
G AOh why mama why
D GWhy can't I sleep in peace tonight
D A BmUnderneath the satellite sky
[Chorus]
DWhy why why
G AOh why mama why
D GWhy can't I sleep in peace tonight
D A BmUnderneath the satellite sky
