[Introduction]
E


[Verse 1]
E
 If you ever hear that thunder, 
         E
put your eye to the sky, boy, and wonder
                A
Maybe there's a kingdom above the weather
       A                                            E
Oh, and whether you're gonna get our name, is up to him
E
  If you ever hear that crying 
       E
in the distance like some siren
                A
Maybe there's a singer with no ring 
                    E
around their little finger, no love
         F#m                 A                        E
And if I lose my voice, if I have no choice but to go quiet
          F#m           A               E
Won't you sing for me a melody into the night air
         F#m                   A                        E
And if I die too young, or the wolf he comes, fee-fi-fo-fum
     F#m                       A                       E
If I die too young, oh, if the locust come, well then, run, run, run, free


[Verse 2]
           E
If you ever hear that gunshot, 
        E
you may think 'bout what you do but you don't got
      A                               E
Say a prayer, think of mother, I am a rock
E
 If you ever hear that sound now
       E
If the door gets kicked in, here they come now
         A
Think of others, be their cover
                  E
I am what they're not
         F#m                A                     E
Pray for Paris, they cannot scare us, or stop the music
          F#m                     A          E
You got a sweet voice, child, why don't you use it?
     F#m                      A                        E
If I die too young, or if the gunmen come, I'm full of love
     F#m             A                E            
So release me, every piece of me, up above, (Up above)


[Verse 3]
E
  Love my mama and my papa
E                                                     A
  Love my sister, can't stand the coppers up in their choppers
               E
Oh, flying overhead, forty-nine dead
E
   Singing, oh, my Lord, come carry me home, oh, my Lord, come carry me home
            A
I'm singing oh, my God, oh, my Lord, oh my God, oh my Lord, 
                              E
oh my God, oh my Lord, Oh, my Lord
         F#m                         A                      E
And if I die too young for something I ain't done, carry my name every day
        F#m             A             E
Oh, I'm sorry, Oh, I'm sorry, Freddie Gray
          F#m            A          E
But sleep easy like baby Jesus in a manger
          F#m              A                 E
Oh, sleep easy like little Jesus, beautiful stranger
E
Oh, beautiful stranger


[Instrumental]
E


[Outro]
     F#m                A                       E
If I die too young, let all that I've done be remembered
               F#m            A            E
And I'll sleep easy like baby Jesus in his manger
               F#m              A                E
And I'll sleep easy like little Jesus, safe from danger
      F#m              A                   E
Carry onward like some songbird, beautiful stranger
      F#m              A                   E
Carry onward like some songbird, beautiful stranger
E
 Oh, beautiful stranger
