C              Dm  G  F                   C    Dm  G   F
Famines will be famines, banquets will be banquets
 C                Dm        G  F             C    Dm  G   F
Some spend winter in a palace, some spend it in blankets.
       C               Dm          G             F
Don't wag your fingers at them and turn to walk away
        C              Dm          G              F
Don't shoot someone tomorrow that you can shoot today

Em                 F
Time to end the praying
Em                    F
Listen what they're saying
G
Get up off our knees
         C                          Dm
You can wag your finger 'till your anger's sore
  G                        F
Shake your head 'till it shakes no more
         C                          Dm
You can wag your finger 'till your anger's sore
  G                        F
Shake your head 'till it shakes no more

   C              Dm  G  F                 C    Dm  G   F
Paupers will be paupers, bankers will be bankers
 C               Dm      G  F              C    Dm  G   F
Some own pennies in a jar, some own oil tankers
      C                Dm     G              F  
What may sound like tomorrow could be ours today
        C                  Dm              G              F
There's no more need for sorrow if we get off our knees to pray

Em                 F
Time to end the praying
Em                    F
Listen what they're saying
G
Get up off our knees
         C                          Dm
You can wag your finger 'till your anger's sore
  G                        F
Shake your head 'till it shakes no more
         C                          Dm
You can wag your finger 'till your anger's sore
  G                        F
Shake your head 'till it shakes no more

   C                Dm     G    F            C    Dm  G   F
Countries will be countries, borders will be borders
 C                    Dm         G  F        C    Dm  G   F
Some have lost their folks at war, some have given orders
       C               Dm           G            F
Don't wag your fingers at them and turn to walk away
        C              Dm          G              F
Don't shoot someone tomorrow that you can shoot today

Em                 F
Time to end the praying
Em                    F
Listen what they're saying
G
Get up off our knees
         C                          Dm
You can wag your finger 'till your anger's sore
  G                        F
Shake your head 'till it shakes no more
         C                          Dm
You can wag your finger 'till your anger's sore
  G                        F
Shake your head 'till it shakes no more
