[Intro]
F#m E Bm D x3

[Verse 1]
F#m         E                 Bm              D
There was a piece of a song I heard the other day
F#m      E                  Bm         D 
    Some words I heard this singer say
F#m             E         D
Something in me loved the way that it sounded
         A          C#        G
When he said how he wanted to stand
Stand and be counted

[Break]
F#m E Bm D x2

[Verse 2]
F#m              E                     Bm         D
Now, sometimes I talk to myself in the early dawn
F#m            E               Bm             D
Before all the fragments of my dreams are gone
F#m                   E        D
Things you don't know why your mind held on to
   A        C#m        G
Or else sometimes you know more than you want to

[Chorus]
A     D      E        A     D      E
Stand and be counted, stand on the truth
A     D       E      G     F#m E
Stand on your honor, stand and be counted

[Break]
F#m E Bm D x2

[Verse 3]
F#m                   E       Bm                 D
And I wonder who that kid was standing brave and trim
F#m               E             Bm              D
And I hear myself breathe and I know that I was him
F#m             E                  D
Defender of the poor and those who cannot speak
  A              C#m              G
I thought I'd be standing by the dam trying to stop the leak

[Chorus]
A     D      E        A     D      E
Stand and be counted, stand on the truth
A     D       E      G     F#m E
Stand on your honor, stand and be counted

[Bridge]
C#m               A              E
So concerned with matters of the heart
C#m                           A             E
And knowing the millenium was just about to start
    F#m          A                Bm
And knowing that somehow we could make a difference

[Solo]
(Over Verse Chords)


[Verse 4]
F#m             E                                    Bm       D
I want to stand alone in front of the world and that oncoming tank
          F#m     E           Bm          D
Like that Chinese boy that we all have to thank
F#m               E            D
He showed us in a picture that I have mounted
A               C#m      G       
Exactly what it means to stand and be counted

[Outro]
A     D      E        A     D      E
Stand and be counted, stand on the truth
A     D       E      G     F#m E
Stand on your honor, stand and be
A     D      E        A     D      E
Stand and be counted, stand on the truth
A     D       E      G     F#m E
Stand on your honor, stand and be

A D E A D E
A D E G F#m E

A     D      E        A     D      E
Stand and be counted, stand on the truth
A     D       E    
Stand on your honor

G F#m E A
