Common People
Written by Church of Rhythm (from Not Perfect)

These chords are easy, so I'm not gonna' write them down.  You can use
power or open chords.  They both sound pretty good (I like to mix them).

Chorus:

C                       G
We are a common people, each of us a fallen man

Am                                    F
Let's find that common ground and stop drawing lines in the sand

C                       G
We are a common people, living in a common life

Am                                      F
There are ties that bind us all when we look beyond the lines

Am      G             F
Common people you and I

Am      G             F
Common people you and I

C
I see a blind man on the street

G
He doesn't know what I look like

Am
So he can't judge the man I am

F
Except by what he sees inside

C
I see a child on the street

G
He doesn't know the mistakes I've made

Am
I know he takes me where I am

F
He sees a friend not a crusade


Chorus.


C
I see a brother on the other side

G
of my crusade, my holy fight

Am
I think I know where I went wrong

F
when I gave up love to be proved right

C
I saw a man die on a cross

G
He forgot the mistakes I've made

Am
He died for me the way I was

F
and He wants me to love the same


Chorus.


         Dm
Can't we tear the fences down?

         Am
Can't we rip the labels off?

        F
Can we share the common ground

           C               G
instead of judging what is not?

        Dm
Can't we love instead of hate?

        Am
Can't we trust instead of fear?

            F
Can we stop fighting for a moment

    C               G
and feel our common fear?

Am                     G
Is it us against them, wrong against right,

F
black against white, my kind your kind?

Am                            G
There comes a time to put the argument down

           F
and have a party on the common ground!


Chorus.
