Midnight in the Village
Seeger lights the candles
From Bitter End to Gaslight
Baez leaves the stage
Ochs takes notes
When the black girl and guitar
Burn together hot in rage
You've got what it takes

You say too much

             [Chorus]~[barre chords]
   Em
Oh you will set the world babe
D                         C
You will set the world on fire
Em
I can work the scene babe
D                 C
I can see the magazines
Em
I can hear the nation
D                     C
I can hear the nation cry
Em
You will set the world babe
D                         Bb   Bbsus4
You will set the world on fire
                   C   Csus4
You will set it on fire

Riff 1a      X2

Riff 2       X4

Kennedy would kill. For the lines that you've written
Van Ronk says to Bobby 'she's the next real thing'
Crouched in the half light, screaming like a banshee
You're in the boat, babe, we're in the water

Riff 1a      X2

        [Chorus]
