The Byrds         I Come And Stand At Every Door  by N.Hikmet

D          C/D            D               C/D             D
I come and stand at every door but no one hears my silent prayer
  G         A             D       Em            C    D
I knock and yet remain unseen for I am dead for I am dead
D        C/D              D
I'm only seven although I died
       C/D        D
In Hiroshima long ago
    G     A             D                  Em       C      D
I'm seven now and I was then when children die they do not grow
D           C/D                  D
My hair was scorched by swirling fire
             C/D              D
My eyes grew dim my eyes grew blind
      G        A                  D
Death came and turned my bones to dust
    Em                 C      D
And that was scattered by the wind
D               C/D       D              C/D             D
I need no fruit I need no rice I need no sweets nor even bread
  G       A           D          Em            C      D
I ask for nothing for myself for I am dead for I am dead
D          C/D            D
All that I ask for is for peace
          C/D             D
You fight today you fight today
G            A              D
So that the children of this world
    Em                C         D
May live and grow and laugh and play

      From the "Fifth Dimension"  LP Columbia Records 1966

In line six, the last word is "flame", not "fire". I just listened to the song straight from the album I've had for more than forty years. Beautiful song! Thanks for posting it.
