Hello again! This song was realeased in 1996, but it's still fantastic. I checked the
chords in the internet and...they were terrible!! I felt that I have to do something
about it. So here it is:

Intro: F#m A6 F#m6 Dmaj7  x4

verse part 1 [Youssou N'dour and Neneh Cherry]: F#m A6 F#m6 Dmaj7  x8

verse part 2 [Neneh Cherry since the words "And when the child is born..": 
Bm F#m C#sus2

chorus C#m B A B x2

chords from intro and then in the verse again [F#m...]
chorus [C#m....]
solo [again the chords starting with F#m:}}

  And when the child is born

   Into this world

     C#sus       G#7
It has no concept 

Of the tone it's skin is living ....

           A6 or F#m              C#m
And there's a      million voices

           A6 or F#m            G# G# G#....
And there's a    million voices

And it's a second.... [chorus again and play till fade]

And now how to play the chords:

F#m (2)-(2)-4-2-2-2

A6 x-x-2-2-2-2

F#m6 x-x-1-2-2-2

Dmaj7 x-x-0-2-2-2

Bm 2-2-4-4-3-2

C#sus2 4-6-6-6-4-4

C#m x-4-6-6-5-4

B x-2-4-4-4-x

A x-0-2-2-2-x

G#7 4-6-4-6-4-4

G# 4-6-6-5-4-4

A good tab but it's still wrong. If you listen to the song its a half step up. Whoever has tabbed it is working a semitone down!!
Please can somebody post the right version? I don't know guitar chords well enough to know what the equivalents would be.
