Verse:
E              Gbm
You and I in a little toy shop
      A                        B
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we got
E                    Gbm
Set them free at the break of dawn
     A                     B
Till one by one, they were gone


E             Gbm
Back at base, bugs in the software
A                  B
Flash the message: Something's out there...
E               Gbm
Floating in the summer sky
A  B                 E Gbm A B     
99 Red Balloons go by...

Verse:
E  Gbm
99 Red Balloons
A               B
Floating in the summer sky
E               Gbm
Panicking, it's red alert
        A                   B
There's something here from somewhere else
E            Gbm
War machines spring to life
A            B
Opens up one eager eye
E           Gbm
Focusing it on the sky
      A  B               E
Where 99 Red Balloons go by...

Verse:
E     Gbm
99 Decision street
A      B
99 ministers meet
   E            Gbm
To worry, worry; super scurry
A                   B
Call the troops out in a hurry
E                  Gbm
This is what we've waited for
A                 B
This is it, boys, this is war
    E            Gbm
The president is on the line
   A  B                E Gbm A B
As 99 Red Balloons go by...

Verse:
E          Gbm
99 knights of the air
     A               B
Ride super high-tech jet fighters
E            Gbm
Everyone's a super hero
A            B
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
     E          Gbm
With orders to identify
   A            B
To clarify and classify
E               Gbm
Scramble in the summer sky
   A  B               E Gbm
As 99 Red Balloons go by...
   A  B               E Gbm A B
As 99 Red Balloons go by...

Verse:
E         Gbm
99 dreams I have had
   A              B
In each and every red balloon
E                      Gbm
  It's all over and I'm  standing pretty
A                B
In the dust that was a city
   E              Gbm
If i could find a souveneir
A                 B
Just to prove the world was here
E             Gbm
And here is a red balloon
A                B
  I think of you   and let it go...
