7. Chords and lyrics to this powerful tune
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 07:57 PM by zulchzulu
For all you fellow musicians out there who want to sing this song or a great song to learn if you're just starting out...like Woody Guthrie said, you play more than three chords and you're showing off...


In The News/Kris Kristofferson

D
Read about the sorry way he done somebody's daughter
A D
Chained her to a heavy thing and threw her in the water
D
And she sank into the darkness with their baby son inside her
A D
A little piece of truth and beauty died

D
Burning up the atmosphere and cutting down the trees
A D
The billion dollar bombing of a nation on its knees
D
Anyone not marching to their tune they call it treason
A D
Everyone says God is on his side

D G
See the lightning, hear the cries
A D
Of the wounded in a world in Holy war
D G
Mortal thunder from the skies
A D
Killing everything they say they're fighting for

D G
Broken babies, broken homes
A D
Broken-hearted people dying everyday
D G
How'd this happen, what went wrong
A D
Don't blame God, I swear to God I heard him say

Chorus
D G
"Not in my name, not on my ground
A D
I want nothing but the ending of the war
D G
No more killing, or it's over
A D
And the mystery won't matter anymore"

D G
Broken dreamers, broken rules
A D
Broken-hearted people just like me and you
D G
We are children of the stars
A D
Don't blame God, I swear to God he's crying too

Repeat Chorus

Repeat First Verse
