Intro:
D C D   C Bm D

              D C      D                      
The world is fast becoming younger
            C Bm          D
The news is all they've ever known
                  D C                 D                      
They've seen the wars, the hurt, the hunger
                C Bm                 D
How will they choose when they are grown?

             D C       D
What do you tell forever's children 
            C      Bm         D
When it's their turn to hurt and heal?
           D C         D
Whatever spins a grim tornado
          C Bm             D 
Can also turn a potter's wheel

 Bm             D    Bm           D
Take a little clay, put it on a wheel
 Bm           D        A        D
Get a little hint how God must feel
 Bm            D     Bm            D
Give a little turn, listen to it spin
 Bm              D        A      D       
Make it in the shape you want it in

                D C        D
Tell with your life a bloody story 
                 C Bm         D
Teach to their dreams not burning steel
             D C                   D
It's not in bombs where lies the glory 
                C  Bm           D
But in what's shattered on the field

               D C            D
The potter's wheel takes love and caring
           C Bm         D
Skill and patience fast and slow
              D C           D
The works it makes are easily broken 
              C Bm                D
Once they survive the potter's throw

 Bm             D    Bm           D
Take a little clay, put it on a wheel
 Bm           D        A        D
Get a little hint how God must feel
 Bm            D     Bm            D
Give a little turn, listen to it spin
 Bm              D        A      D       
Make it in the shape you want it in

D C D   C Bm D

                D   C         D
Some day some children will be digging 
         C Bm       D
In some long forgotten ground
                 D C        D
And they'll find our civilization 
               C Bm         D
Or what's left of it to be found

                  D  C           D
They'll find the weapons of destruction
            C Bm       D
But buried deeper in the hole
                D  C           D
They'll find a message and a promise 
        C Bm               D
In the sand, the potter's bowl

 Bm             D    Bm           D
Take a little clay, put it on a wheel
 Bm           D        A        D
Get a little hint how God must feel
 Bm            D     Bm            D
Give a little turn, listen to it spin
 Bm              D        A      D       
Make it in the shape you want it in

 Bm             D    Bm           D
Take a little clay, put it on a wheel
 Bm           D        A        D
Get a little hint how God must feel
 Bm            D     Bm            D
Give a little turn, listen to it spin
 Bm              D        A      D       
Make it in the shape you want it in

Bm         D         Bm       D
Earth and water and wind conspire 
      Bm    D         A        D
With human hands and love and fire

 Bm             D    Bm           D
Take a little clay, put it on a wheel
 Bm           D        A        D
Get a little hint how God must feel
 Bm            D     Bm            D
Give a little turn, listen to it spin
 Bm              D        Em     D     Bm D      
Make it in the shape you want it in
