Verse
Em/ //             G/ //
      Everywhere is     freaks and hairies
Am/ //                 C/ //                        Riff 1
      dykes and fairies     tell me where is sanity?

Em/ //            G/ //
      Tax the rich     feed the poor
Am/ //                   C/ //             Riff 1
      til there aren't no     rich no more.

Chorus
Riff 1
I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do.
Riff 1                  Riff 1
So I leave it up to you.

Verse
Em/ //          G/ //
      Population     keeps on breedin
Am/ //              C/ //               Riff 1
      nation bleedin     still no feedin - don't count on me.

Em/ //             G/ //
      Life is funny     skies are sunny
Am/ //               C/ //                Riff 1
      bees make honey     who needs money? - no more for me.

Chorus

Interlude (acoustic: play verse chords electric: alvin lee solo)

Em             G
More pollution, there's no solution,
Am          C
institution, electricution,
Em              G
spread the word, rich and poor,
Am       C
helpin us to stop the war.

Riff 1 2x then Chorus; end on a slow-strum Em

Sorry, but I couldn't figure out the last few notes before the Em,
but I'm sure you can pick them out on your own.  The Riff below is
right, but it takes a few tries to get the right rhythym.

Peace, love, and rock and roll.
                 Ian Conwell

Probably a simple mistake and is easily caught, but in Riff 1 the Am chord should be moved one string down so that the 3 starts on the A string.

The last line of the verse has a B chord just before Riff 1

I believe after each C chord there is another one the B7 I believe just before starting back into the Em riff
