Together we cry...
            Gm  D7 Cm Dm
Together we cry...


            Gm
Jenny was a poor girl
            D7
Living in a rich world
               Cm                         Dm
Named her baby Hope when she was just fourteen
                     Gm
She was hoping for a better world
                Dm
For this little girl
                      Cm                    Dm
But the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree


         Gm
Well she gets that call
       D7
Hope's too far gone
Cm                Bb
Her baby's on the way
            Gm      Dm
But nothing left inside
            Cm Dm
Together we cry!


               Gm
What about the junk head
                    D7
Could have gone the whole way
                Cm                    Dm
Lighting up the stage trying to get a deal
                         Gm
Now he's lighting up the wrong way
                   Dm
"Something for the pain!"
                       Cm                      Dm
Man you wanna see this kid he was so xxxxin' unreal


        Gm
When he gets that call
     Dm
He's too far gone
   Cm                 Bb
To get it together to sing one song
Gm         Dm
They won't hear tonight
    Cm              Dm
The words of a lullaby


            Gm D7 Cm Bb
Together we cry...

Yeah, yeah, yeah
            Gm D7 Cm Dm
Together we cry...

Whoah oh whoah oh whoah
            Gm D7 Cm Bb
Together we cry...

Oh we cry we cry we cry
            Gm D7 Cm Dm
Together we cry...

Oh we cry we cry

Whoah oh whoah oh whoah


      Gm
Oh... Mary's ambitious
          D7
She wanna be a politician
         Cm                                Dm
She been dreaming about it since she was a girl
                 Gm                                    Dm
She thought that she'd be the one who could change the world
                 Cm                         Dm
Always trying to pave the way for women in a... man's world


Gm                 D7                   Cm
But life happened, house, kids, 2 cars, husband hits the jar, cheques that
Bb
don't go very far now
Gm                  Dm                                   Cm
Now she in it can't change it, she keeps her mind on her wages
                  Dm
The only rattling cages!


            Gm D7 Cm Bb
Together we cry...
            Gm Dm Cm Dm
Together we cry...


                Gm                  Dm
There's so much sad gonna flood the ocean
             Cm                     Bb
We're all in tears for the world is broken
            Gm D7 Cm Dm
Together we cry...


                              Gm              Dm
There comes a time when every bird has to fly
                    Cm          Dm
At some point every rose has to die
             Gm
It's hard to let your children go

Leave home
D7
Where they go?

Who knows!
        Cm
Getting drunk

Getting stoned
     Bb
All alone



Teach a man to fish
       Gm                  D7
You'll feed him never lie
                      Cm 
You show your kids the truth
                Bb
Hope they never lie
                        Gm                                    D7
Instead of reading in a letter that they've gone to something better
                       Cm                     Dm
"Bet your sorry now! I won't be coming home tonight"


Gm                            Dm
I'm sick of looking for those heroes in the sky
   Cm
To teach us how to fly
         Bb
Together we cry!

We cry!


            Gm D7 Cm Bb
Together we cry...

            Gm Dm Cm Dm
Together we cry...

Oh yeah!
                Gm                  D7
There's so much sad gonna flood the ocean
             Cm                     Bb
We're all in tears for the world is broken
            Gm D7 Cm Dm
Together we cry

Oh yeah!
