              C              Am       F          Gsus4
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
          C    Em      Am    Em    Dm       G
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
         C          Bb/C    C7
If I can dream of a better land
      F                    E7      Am
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
        C/G     Am      F   Dm7      C/E   Am   Dm    G      F/G     G
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true     oh, why

              C              Am       F          Gsus4
There must be peace and understanding sometime
                C     Em          Am       Em   Dm        G
Strong winds of promise that will blow away the doubt and fear
         C          Bb/C    C7
If I can dream of a warmer sun
      F                     E7   Am
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
        C/G     Am      F   Dm7        C/E G C     F   C   C7
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

F                F#dim   C/G              C7
 We're lost in a cloud      with too much rain
F                   F#dim   C                     C7
 We're trapped in a world      that's troubled with pain
F                 F#dim       C/G      E/G# Am
 But as long as a man has the strength to   dream
         Dsus4    D        F/G    G          A
He can redeem his soul and fly       (He can fly)

VERSE (+ coda)
           D               Bm        G          A7sus4
Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
           D   F#m       Bm      F#m            Em       A7sus4
Still I am sure that the answer, answer's gonna come somehow
                 D                         G          G#dim
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle, yeah
                D/A                Bm
And while I can think, while I can talk
            D/A                Bm
While I can stand, while I can walk
            G                    Em         G/A           [break]
While I can dream, please let my dream come true, oh
      D      Bm
Right now, 
                       D      Bm
Let it come true right now
        D    G     D
Oh yeah
