A Bm G D2


[Verse]

D2             Bm
me and all my friends
       G            D2
we're all misunderstood
      A                 Bm
they say we stand for nothing and
            G           D2
there's no way we ever could
            A                 Bm
now we see everything that's going wrong
           G                   D2
with the world and those who lead it
         A                  Bm
we just feel like we don't have the means
    G              D2
to rise above and beat it


[Chorus]

       D2      D1     Bm
so we keep waiting (waiting)
                G         D2
waiting on the world to change
             A        Bm
we keep on waiting (waiting)
                 G        D2
waiting on the world to change
      D2               Em7
it's hard to beat the system
            Bm7             Em7
whe n we're standing at a distance
             A       Bm
so we keep waiting (waiting)
                G         D2
waiting on the world to change


[Verse]

    D1             Bm
now if we had the power
               G                 D2
to bring our neighbors home from war
                  A              Bm
they would have never missed a Christmas
         G               D2
no more ribbons on their door
              D2             Bm
and when you trust your television
          G              D2
what you get is what you got
                 A            Bm
cause when they own the information, oh
          G                D2
they can bend it all they want


[Chorus]

        D2        D1        Bm
that's why we're waiting (waiting)
                G         D2
waiting on the world to change
            A         Bm
we keep on waiting (waiting)
                G        D2
waiting on the world to change
     D2                Em7
it's not that we don't care,
        Bm7            Em7
we just know that the fight ain't fair
               A        Bm
so we keep on waiting (waiting)
                G         D2
waiting on the world to change


[Bridge]

Gm (3,6,7,0,x,x)


[Chorus]

                 A        Bm
and we're still waiting (waiting)
                G        D2
waiting on the world to change
            A       Bm
we keep on waiting (waiting)
                G        D2
waiting on the world to change


[Chorus 2]

    D2            Em7
one day our generation
          Bm7          Em7
is gonna rule the population
               A        Bm
so we keep on waiting (waiting)
                G        D2
waiting on the world to change 
    D2            Em7
one day our generation
          Bm7          Em7
is gonna rule the population
               A        Bm
so we keep on waiting (waiting)
                G        D2
waiting on the world to change 
    D2            Em7
one day our generation
          Bm7          Em7
is gonna rule the population
               A        Bm
so we keep on waiting (waiting)
                G        D2
waiting on the world to change 


[Outro]

 D2             G        D2
waiting on the world to change 
 D2             G        D2
waiting on the world to change 
 D2             G        D2
waiting on the world to change
