Verse 1
D              Bm           G            D
Me and all my friends we're all misunderstood
      A               Bm                      G           D
They say we stand for nothing and there's no way we ever could
        D                    Bm
Now we see everything that's going wrong
          G                   D
With the world and those who lead it
         A                  Bm                G              D
We just feel like we don't have the means to rise above and beat it


Chorus
       D             Bm                      G         D
So we keep waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
             A       Bm                      G         D
We keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
      D               Em                 Bm            Em
It's hard to beat the system when we're standing at a distance
            A       Bm                       G         D
So we keep waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change


Verse 2
    D             Bm                  G                   D
Now if we had the power to bring our neighbors home from war
                 A              Bm                G                D
They would have never missed a Christmas no more ribbons on their door
               D            Bm               G              D
And when you trust your television what you get is what you got
                 A            Bm                  G                D
'Cause when they own the information, oh they can bend it all they want


Chorus
                   D       Bm                      G         D
That's why we're waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
We keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
      D                Em                          Bm           Em
It's not that we don't care, we just know that the fight ain't fair
               A        Bm                      G         D
So we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change

Chorus
             D       Bm                       G         D
We're still waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
We keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
     D           Em             Bm           Em
One day our generation is gonna rule the population
               A         Bm                     G         D
So we keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
Do we keep waiting?(waiting) waiting on the world to change
            A        Bm                      G         D
We keep on waiting (waiting) waiting on the world to change
                G         D                     G         D
Waiting on the world to change, waiting on the world to change
                G         D
Waiting on the world to change

Nice work. Like to see it's the chords higher up than just the open chords.
