Intro: Em  Bm  D  Em

Verse:
             Em        Bm    D  Em
Take all the Metal and Wood
            Em     Bm   D  Em
Used in the waging war
              Em       Bm         D      Em
And teach the men that make those weapons
         Em      Bm      D    Em
To build shelter for the poor

Verse:
             Em       Bm    D  Em
Take all the money we spend
       Em       Bm       D  Em
On the way that we appear
         Em        Bm     D      Em
Find the ones that die of hunger
         Em           Bm     D    Em
And help them to see another year

Chorus:
Em  Bm      D     Em
  Before we fade away
Em      Bm     D      Em
  Let's make a better day
Em     Bm         D       Em
  This world will keep on turning
  Em    Bm     D--          Em
  After we are gone... long gone.

Solo: Em Bm D Bm

Verse - same as other Verses -:
There is a forest I loved
Where the air was fresh and clean
We took the forest for a factory
So we could build some more machines

Verse - same as other Verses -:
When I was young I learned to sing
And music blossomed in my soul
We took the music from the schools
And left the darkest, gaping holes.

Chorus:
Em    Bm       D        Em
Where will our children be?
Em Bm         D        Em
If they don't learn to see?
Em          Bm             D                   Em
Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone

Bridge:
     Em      Bm
When we were young
D                 Em
All the world was new
    Em      Bm
But soon we found
    D              Em              Em
The childhood fairytale were never true

Verse:
    Em            Bm
And how the story ends
           D
Depends on you
    Em
And me

Em               Bm
  Where will our children be?
D               Em
  If they don't learn to see?
Em          Bm             D                   Em
Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone

Outro:
Em  Bm      D     Em
  Before we fade away
Em      Bm     D      Em
  Let's make a better day
Em     Bm         D       Em
  This world will keep on turning

After we are gone
After you are gone.

  Em    Bm     D--          Em
  After we are gone... long gone.
