Intro: 
   D  Bm  G  D 
   A  Bm  G  D


D               Bm            G             D       
Me and all my friends, we're all misunderstood.
      A                  Bm                    G            D
They say we stand for nothing, and theres no way we ever could.
               D             Bm                   G                   D
Now we see everything thats going wrong with the world and those who lead it
         A                  Bm                G              D
We just feel like we don't have the means to rise above and beat it.


              D        Bm    
So we keep waiting,          
                  G        D
waiting on the world to change.
              A        Bm     
We keep on waiting,           
                 G        D
waiting on the world to change.


       D                G                    Bm            G
It's hard to beat the system, when you're standing at a distance,


              A         Bm    
So we keep waiting,           
                 G        D
waiting on the world to change.


      D                     Bm                    G                 D
Now  if  we  had    the   power  to bring our neighbors home from war
                  A              Bm                 G                 D
They would have never missed a Christmas, No more ribbons on their door
               D           Bm                 G               D
And when you trust your television, What you get is what you got
                 A            Bm                  G                D
Cause when they own the information, oh, They can bend it all they want 


                   D        Bm   
That's why we're waiting         
                 G           D
Waiting on the world to change
              A      Bm  
We keep on waiting       
                G            D
Waiting on the world to change


       D                G              Bm                Em
It's not that we don't care, We just know that the fight ain't fair


              A         Bm   
So we keep on waiting        
               G        D
Waiting on the world to change

  3. Lilylovesherukulele

    Love this song so much, +5 is the easiest for me :)

  4. Bjfhrbdogh

    The song sounds fantastic if you use bar chords when possible. A Major shaped bar on the 5th fret for D then Bm and normal G.

  5. ukegiraffe432

    -2 is good

  6. The D sounds better if you hold the A string on the fifth fret as well

  7. I love it!
