[Intro]
G  C/G  G  C/G

[Verse 1]
       G           C/G          G           C/G
I went looking for answers that couldn't be found
       G      C/G          G      C/G
Set an uneasy pace on that uneven ground
C                                           G     C/G     G     C/G
Between the downtrodden and the blood of my blood
D             C              G     C/G     G     C/G
Why do I keep waiting on the dove?

[Verse 2]
            G               C/G            G           C/G
Between the rubbish and the rubble there's no place to hide
G         C/G           G            C/G
Trust and trouble can't walk side by side
C                                             G     C/G     G     C/G
Why is it the latter that seems to fit like a glove?
D             C              G     C/G     G     C/G
Why do I keep waiting on the dove?

[Verse 3]
   G       C/G            G             C/G
Oh so many people looking out for their own
     G            C/G               G               C/G 
With tear gas and plate glass, with slings and with stones
C                                                G     C/G     G     C/G
When there's no room to breathe it's hard not to shove
D             C              G     C/G     G     C/G
Why do I keep waiting on the dove?

[Verse 4]
         G           C/G       G            C/G
Yeah I'm clinging to something too tight to drop it
      G          C/G     G                C/G
These tears keep coming, nothing seems to stop it
    C                                         G     C/G     G     C/G
And every drop just adds a little more to the flood
D             C              G     C/G     G     C/G
Why do I keep waiting on the dove?

G   C/G   G   C/G

[Verse 5]
G               C/G            G             C/G
Headlines read "land mines and houses ripped down"
      G            C/G            G        C/G
I put names to the faces in these crumbling towns
      C                                       G     C/G     G     C/G
I see sorrow so deep, but there's laugher and love
D             C              G     C/G     G     C/G
Why do I keep waiting on the dove?

[Verse 6]
      G             C/G     G          C/G
I see people caught on both sides of a wall
     G        C/G          G          C/G
Must one side rise and the other side fall?
          C                              G                     C/G     G     C/G
Can there only be peace when one side is silenced in blood?
D             C              G     C/G     G     C/G
Why do I keep waiting on the dove?

[Verse 7]
    G           C/G           G              G/C
I'm flying home with the leaf clutched in my hand
G         C/G             G           C/G
On either side there's no sign of dry land
    C                                                   G     C/G     G     C/G
The water keeps rising and there's nothing but darkness above
D      C      G
Why to I keep waiting?
D      C      G
Why do I keep waiting?
D      C       G              G     C/G     G     C/G     G     C/G     G
Why do we keep waiting on the dove?



C/G can be replaced with Gsus4 and still have the same effect.
This makes playing with certain otherinstruments like uke a bit easier on them.
