Song Birds in the Razor Wire.

Brian Pinkowski

Inspired by watching the joy in the hearts of South Sudanese people I found living in the
slums outside my hotel in Juba.

Verse 1
D
Heartbeat rhythm.
D
Listen to the whisk brooms.
D
Young girls working.
C9           D
Sweeping red dirt.
D
Bundles perched
D
Atop the women's' heads.
D
Boys with AKs,
C9        D
Breaks my heart.
D
Boys with AKs,
C9        D
Breaks my heart.

Verse 2
D
Rusted slum shacks
D
Rubbish burning in the street.
D
White folk show up
C9                D
Thinking they can help.
D
Every building
D
Wrapped up like a fortress.
D
Boys with AKs,
C9        D
Breaks my heart.
D
Boys with AKs,
C9        D
Breaks my heart.

Chorus
D           Bm                D
Yet there's barefoot children laughing.
      A                 C
Doing handstands on the wall.
G                   D
Church folk singing wildly.
D                    C9    D
and songbirds in the razor wire.
D                C9    D
Songbirds in the razor wire.

Verse 3
D
There ain't no jobs.
D
There ain't no money.
D
Worn out shoes 
D   C9    D
Up on the roof.
D
Everyday
D
Water in the jerry cans
D
Seems so hopeless
D      C9 D
Breaks my heart.
D
Seems so hopeless
D      C9 D
Breaks my heart.

Chorus
D           Bm                D
Yet there's barefoot children laughing.
      A                 C
Doing handstands on the wall.
G                   D
Church folk singing wildly.
D                    C9    D
and songbirds in the razor wire.
D                C9    D
Songbirds in the razor wire.

Bridge
G           D           C9      G
Life can be hard in the African streets.
G                    D
But joy is where you find it.
G                D
Joy is where you find it.
      G                D
Yeah, joy is where you find it.
G              D
unh, unh, unh, unh.

Chorus
D           Bm                D
Yes there's barefoot children laughing,
      A                 C
doing handstands on the wall.
G                   D
Church folk singing wildly.
D                    C9    D
and songbirds in the razor wire.
D                C9    D
Songbirds in the razor wire.

G                      D
yeah, joy is where you find it.

Songbirds in the razor wire.

Joy is where you find it.

Songbirds in the razor wire.

Joy is where you find it.

Songbirds in the razor wire.
