  D								G
I woke up this mornin' and none of the news was good 
	D				Bm			       A
And death machines were rumblin' 'cross the ground where Jesus stood
	D							   G
And the man on my TV told me that it had always been that way 
			    D		Bm			A
And there was nothin' anyone could do or say 

And I almost listened to him 
Yeah, I almost lost my mind 
Then I regained my senses again 
And looked into my heart to find 

	D				     				     G
That I believe that one fine day all the children of Abraham
	      D				(G)*	     A	      D
 Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem 

Well maybe I'm only dreamin' and maybe I'm just a fool 
But I don't remember learnin' how to hate in Sunday school 
But somewhere along the way I strayed and I never looked back again 
But I still find some comfort now and then 

Then the storm comes rumblin' in 
And I can't lay me down 
And the drums are drummin' again 
And I can't stand the sound 

But I believe there'll come a day when the lion and the lamb 
Will lie down in peace together in Jerusalem 

And there'll be no barricades then 
There'll be no wire or walls 
And we can wash all this blood from our hands 
And all this hatred from our souls 

And I believe that on that day all the children of Abraham 
Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem 

*This (G) is optional; it sounds right with or without it, and I can't tell which way Steve plays it.

Beautiful, easy little song by an awesome songwriter.  Send feedback to jshepp08@amherst.edu

Steve plays this capoed on the seventh fret, so chord structure changes to use G form. This makes it easy to play the C# and F# base notes.
