A C Em G AIn a land without any pity And a sun scorching from the sky
A C Em G AIn the desert, they built a city Sharp as flint that could make you cry
A C Em G AHold on to it Hold on to it It’s a dream that will never die
A C Em G ACome there with me Come there with me It’s the home of my own mind’s eye
A C Em G A
A C Em G ABut the dreamer was never welcome Other lands have their own demands
A C Em G AGet away boy, you don’t belong here That’s our law and it always stands
A C Em G AHold on to it Hold on to it It’s a dream that will make you cry
A C Em G ACome there with me Come there with me And they’ll let us in by and by
Em Em [Chorus:]
C F GI will meet you when things are better
C F GIn a world without any fear
F F GWe’ll be facing our bright tomorrow
F F GAt the end of this trail of tears
A A A C Em G A x2
A C Em G AThey asked our dreamer for reams of paper These were the keys that he didn’t own
A C Em G AThey pointed back to the land he came from Said: “Go back there, son ‘cos that’s your home”
A C Em G AGo back to it Go back to it No future, no life, no hope
A C Em G ACome there with me Come there with me And you’ll see why I can’t go home
Em Em [Chorus]
C F GI will meet you when things are better
C F GIn a world without any fear
F F GWe’ll be facing our bright tomorrow
F F GAt the end of this trail of tears
A A D A G A
D A G AAnd the trail goes on On and on For years and years
D A G A B BThe trail drags on Never ending Trail of tears
A C Em G A x2
A C Em G ASo, the dreamer turns from the city But he asks them before he leaves:
A C Em G A“Who checked your papers to build this country? Who gave permission for you and not me?”
A C Em G AThink back on it Think back on it Land is the land and it was always free
A C Em G ABefore you Before you No one had papers, they would simply “be”
[Chorus]
C F GI will meet you when things are better
C F GIn a world without any fear
F F GWe’ll be facing our bright tomorrow
F F GAt the end of this trail of tears
C F GI will meet you when things are better
C F GIn a world without any fear
F F GWe’ll be facing our bright tomorrow
F F GAt the end of this trail of tears
A A A C Em G A x4
