Intro: F Am F Am 

Verse 1:
     F            Am    
Wake up! Say good morning to 
     F                   G 
that sleepy person lying next to you
           Am7                         Am    
If there's no one there, then there's no one there, 
       F                G 
but at least the war is over

Interlude: F Am F Am 

Chorus:
     F               Am 
It's us - yes, we're back again, 
        F                         G 
here to see you through, 'til the days end
           Am7                  Am 
And if the night comes, and the night will come, 
        F             G 
well at least the war is over

          E                     Am 
Lift your head and look out the window
          F                               G    
Stay that way for the rest of the day and watch the time go

Am7         F           F           G            
Listen! The birds sing! Listen! The bells ring!
        F                        G 
All the living are dead, and the dead are all living
    F               Ami
The war is over and we are beginning...

Interlude: F Am
 
Verse 2:
    F           Am 
Gridlock on the parkway now, 
        F                     G 
the television man is here to show you how
            Am7                        Am 
The channle fades to snow, it's off to work you go, 
       F                G 
but at least the war is over

Interlude: F Am F Am 

      F                Am 
She's gone, she left before you woke, 
       F                       G    
as you ate last night, neither of you spoke
        Am7                  Am 
Dishes, tv, bed the darkness filled with dread, 
       F                G 
but at least the war is over

Chorus:
          E                     Am 
Lift your head and look out the window
          F                               G    
Stay that way for the rest of the day and watch the time go

Am7         F           F           G            
Listen! The birds sing! Listen! The bells ring!
        F                        G 
All the living are dead, and the dead are all living
    F               Ami
The war is over and we are beginning...

Interlude:
F Am F G F G 
F Am F Am 

Verse 3:
   F          Am 
We won, or we think we did, 
         F                   G 
when you went away, you were just a kid
           Am7                  Am 
And if you lost it all, and you lost it, 
        F                              G 
we will still be there when the war is over
         
Chorus:
          E                     Am 
Lift your head and look out the window
          F                               G 
Stay that way for the rest of the day and watch the time go
F           G           F           Am 
Listen! The birds sing! Listen! The bells ring!
        F                        Am 
All the living are dead, and the dead are all living
    F               G           F      G            
The war is over and we are beginning...

It starts up in our bedroom after the war

    E Gb
    Stay that way for the rest of the day and watch the time go
