Correcting my correction. Three Dog Night plays the song in B, so the A chord patterns work if you capo on 2nd fret. Here are the corrected lyrics, with the chords as in the Key of A. Key: BCapo 2A E A E A E A E A D A E A E A EThe ink is black, the page is white, A D Etogether we learn to read and write. A E A EA child is black, a child is white; A D E the whole world looks upon the sight, A D A a beautiful sight. E AAnd now a child can understand E D E7 that this is the law of all the land,E E7 all the land.
A E A EThe world is black, the world is white A D Eit turns by day and then by night. A E A EA child is black, a child is white. A D E together they grow to see the light, A D A to see the light. E AAnd now at last we plainly see E E7 we?ll have a dance of liberty, E E7liberty. A E A E The world is black, the world is white. A D EIt turns by day and then by night. A E A EA child is black, a child is white. A D E The whole world looks upon the sight, A D A a beautiful sight. A E A EThe world is black, the world is white A D Eit turns by day and then by night. A E A EA child is black, a child is white. A D E Together they grow to see the light, A D A to see the light. A E A EThe world is black, the world is white. A D EIt turns by day and then by night. A E A EA child is black, a child is white. A D E The whole world looks upon the sight, A D A a beautiful sight. A E A EThe world is black, the world is white A D Eit turns by day and then by night. A E A EA child is black, a child is white. A D E Together they grow to see the light, A D A a beautiful sight.

(Fade out, with same chord progression as intro, and various spoken lines shouted out over the instrumentals.)

(The original song, written in 1959 in response to the Brown v. Board Of Education SCOTUS decision, had several other verses too.)
