K'naan Speaks
C                      F
  It started out as my song
              Am   G
but then it became their song
all of these artists' song
         F           Am          G
and it's going to be haiti's song

When I get older
I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom
just like a Waving Flag

Born to a throne older than Rome

Dm                G
Where I got grown but now it's gone

Avril Lavigne:
C                   G/B
Out of the darkness in came the carnage
Am                         G
threatening my our very survival

Pierre Bouvier
F                          C/E
Fractured from streets and broke all my dreams

Brandon Lehti:
    Dm                       G
now feels like defeat, don't red should retreat,

Refrain 1:
       C         G/B
So we struggling fighting to eat and
   Am        G
We wondering when we'll be free
F                  C/E
we cannot wait for some fateful day
     Dm              G
It's too far away so right now we say

C                F
When I get older I will be stronger
Am                      G                  C
They'll call me freedom,just like a Waving flag
                 F                     Am
And then it goes back and then it goes back
And then it goes back oh oh oh

C            G/B
So many wars settling scores,

All out we've been through and now there is more

Serena Ryder:

Love is the answer that's what they say

Emily Haines:
    C                          G/B
But we're not just dreamers of broken down river

Hawksley Workman:
Am                     G
How can we reach us if they're--- too routine far

Tyler Connoly:
F                     C/E                      Dm

   F                  C/E
we patiently wait for some other day
     Dm              G
It's too far away so right now we say

(Repeat Chorus 2 twice)


Canadian Rapper Drake:
how can do the media stop covering
it's little help from the government
we forget about the people who is struggling
I'm so nevrous and awful now and then and
F                       C/E
no see we don't have to wait for things
to break apart  if you weren't involve
before it's not too late to start
  You probably think that it's
too far to even have to care
Am                             G
  well take a look the way you lived
what if it happened there
F                               C/E
  You have to know that urge to make
a change lives but then we can be
a reason that they see the blacks rise again

(Repeat Chorus 2 sang by Nikki Yanofski)

Chorus 3: Modulate from C to D
D                G
When I get older I will be stronger
Bm                       A                  D
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving flag
                 G                     Bm
And then it goes back and then it goes back
And then it goes back oh oh oh


Justin Bieber:
D  G
   When I get older
Bm A
   When I get older
D  G
   I will be stronger
Bm A                    D(hold)
   Just like the waving flag

The rapper in the bridge section is actually also Drake, not Mad Child. Great tab tho, fun little song to solo over with the right chords.

Go canada!
