[C   Co   Fm7(b5)]


C                      G
The Russians have the biggest share

  With their long fingers everywhere

  With laser beams and atomic waste
C				G
 Rain forest chopped for paper towels

 One acre gone in every hour*

 Our birds and wildlife all destroyed

 To keep some millionaires employed    (different interlude)

We've got to save the whale
Bb                  D         F#m7(b5)  G
Greenpeace they've tried to diffuse    it
Bb                A7
   But dog food salesmen
    Dm                   G#7  G
Persist on kindly to harpoon it

We've got to save the world

C                  G
  The armament consortium

  They're selling us plutonium

  Now you can make your own H-bomb
F                      Fm         C   |Co  Fm7(b5)| (fast passage)
  Right in the kitchen with your mom
 
C                        G
 The nuclear power that costs you more
C                       G
 Than anything you've known before
F                      A7
 The half-wit's answer to a need
F                      Fm            C   |Co  Fm7(b5)| (fast passage)
 For cancer, death, destruction, greed

 Reduce this planet into hell
F                      Fm            C   |Co  Fm7(b5)| (fast passage)

 To end upon a happy note
C                    G
 Like trying to make concrete float

We're gonna lose it - We gotta save, we gotta save
                     C    Co  Fm7(b5)  C
We gotta save the world.


Comments: 

1) The slide guitar interludes vary. I've transcripted one from the 
introduction (there are two, making a dobro) just in case of identifying
the main melody.

2) I really dislike this song. It has a quite bizarre chords sequency that
doesn't make a beautiful result. And the lyrics are very poor, not to 
mention the "Russians" part, that reveals a very shallow knowledge about the facts
or, at least, a kind of ingenuity from my (our) favorite songwriter/musician.
I'm the biggest George Harrison fan in the world, for sure... but this song, along
with only 2 or 3 other songs from his entire career, is unpassable.

3) Why had I spent my time transcripting it? Well, "a friend came to me, and told 
me that he wanted help"... so it was worthwile.
