CAPO ON 7th Fret

Intro: G,E-,C,G,D,E-,C,G

Verse:
G                      E-
Me and all my friends 
         C                       G
We're all misunderstood
         D                        E- 
They say we stand for nothing and 
                  C                   G
There's no way we ever could 

              G                             E-
Now we see everything that's going wrong 
                 C                         G
With the world and those who lead it
              D                        E-
We just feel like we don't have the means 
       C                    G
To rise above and beat it 


Chorus
                       G          E-
So we keep waiting 
                          C                 G
Waiting on the world to change 
                       D          E-
We keep on waiting 
                         C                   G
Waiting on the world to change 
        G                      A-
It's hard to beat the system 
                     E-                   A-
When we're standing at a distance
                      D        E-         
So we keep waiting 
                         C                  G
Waiting on the world to change 


Verse
        G                   E-
Now if we had the power 
                      C                            G
To bring our neighbors home from war
                            D                       E- 
They would have never missed a Christmas 
                  C                    G
No more ribbons on their door 
                       G                  E-
And when you trust your television
                C                       G 
What you get is what you got 
                          D                   E-
Cause when they own the information, oh 
                 C                      G
They can bend it all they want 

Chorus
G          E-
So we keep waiting 
                          C                 G
Waiting on the world to change 
                       D          E-
We keep on waiting 
                         C                   G
Waiting on the world to change 
        G                      A-
It's hard to beat the system 
                     E-                   A-
When we're standing at a distance
                      D        E-         
So we keep waiting 
                         C                  G
Waiting on the world to change

 
                         
                           D      E-
And we're still waiting 
                          C                G
Waiting on the world to change 
                       D      E-
We keep on waiting 
                          C             G
Waiting on the world to change 
         G               A-
One day our generation 
               E-              A-
Is gonna rule the population
                             D       E- 
So we keep on waiting 
                          C                 G
Waiting on the world to change 
                         D    E-
We keep on waiting 
                          C                  G
Waiting on the world to change
                         C                  G
Waiting on the world to change
                         C                  G (This last strum pattern is C: DDU, G:D)

I know the chords are in the wrong places - they weren't like this when I submitted it, so i'm not quite sure what happened. Going to try submitting it again, so check out my next version for the chords in the RIGHT places!
