Capo on third fret.

  I used to think the world was flat
  Rarely threw my hat into the crowd
 F                                G
I felt I had used up my quota of yearning
  Used to look in on the children at night
  In the glow of their Donald Duck light
 F                                                     G
And frighten myself with the thought of my little ones burning

    Am        G              C
But oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning
  Am     G             C
          The tide is turning

Satellite buzzing through the endless night
Exclusive to moonshots and world title fights
F                                    G
Jesus Christ imagine what it must be earning
Who is the strongest, who is the best
Who holds the aces, the East or the West
F                                  G
This is the crap our children are learning
Am            G              C
But oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning
Am    G             C
       The tide is turning
Am         G             C
Oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning

Now the satellite's confused
'Cos on Saturday night
The airwaves were full of compassion and light
And his silicon heart warmed
To the sight of a billion candles burning
Am         G             C
Oo, oo, oo, the tide is turning
Am         G             C
Oo, oo, oo, the tide is turning

[spoken:]The tide is turning Billy

I'm not saying that the battle is won
But on Saturday night all those kids in the sun
F                                                G
Wrested technology's sword from the hand of the War Lords
Am         G             C
Oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning
Am    G              C
        The tide is turning Sylvester

Am G C over "The tide is turning" in various ways until fade out.

Additionally: Roger Waters played this verse live, and included it as an easter egg on 
cd (it is the morse code all over Radio K.A.O.S.

Now the past is over but you are not alone
Together we'll fight Sylvester Stallone
We will not be dragged down in his South China Sea
of macho bullshit and mediocrity

Play like all the other verses and include som of the "Oh, oh, oh, ..." afterwards..
