Michael Jackson's "Earth
Song" represents the
voice of planet Earth
suffering from ecological
imbalance and trying to
compensate for man's
mismanagement.

Capo 4


[Intro]
 Em A Em A B


[Verse 1]
Em            A
   What about sunrise
Em            A
   What about rain
Em            A                        B
   What about all the things, that you said we were to gain

Em            A
   What about killing fields
Em            A
   Is there a time
Em            A                       B
   What about all the things that you said was yours and mine

        C            D
Did you ever stop to notice
        G                D/F#   Em
All the blood we've shed before
        Am
Did you ever stop to notice
           B
The crying Earth the weeping shores?


[Chorus 1] 
        Em               A            Em   A
Aah aah aah, aah aah aah aah aah aah, aah

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh


[Verse 2]
Em              A
   What have we done to the world
Em                 A
   Look what we've done
Em            A                      B
   What about all the peace that you pledge your only son
Em            A
   What about flowering fields
Em            A
   Is there a time
Em            A                       B
   What about all the dreams that you said was yours and mine

        C            D
Did you ever stop to notice
        G             D/F# Em
All the children dead from war
             Am
Did you ever stop to notice
           B
The crying Earth the weeping shores


[Chorus 2] 
        Em               A            Em   A
Aah aah aah, aah aah aah aah aah aah, aah

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh


[Verse 3]
Am              D
I used to dream
          G               D/F#   Em
I used to glance beyond the stars
Am
Now I don't know where we are
  B
Although I know we've drifted far


[Chorus 3] 
        Em               A            Em   A
Aah aah aah, aah aah aah aah aah aah, aah
