[Intro]

[Verse]
G                   D          G             C
If the wall it goes up and the country comes down
         G           D          C           G
And it’s too tall to get in too late to get out
        G            D                  G     C  
And the beaches have barbed wire 'cross every shore
          G             D                  C          G
Would you lay down your gun then you won’t need it no more

       G            D            G          C
If the wall it goes up would the thing ever fall
        G              D         C           G
Will it stand there forever long after we’re gone
     G             D            G               C
As a tombstone for freedom in a world that went wrong
    G         D            C          G
A reminder of just how far we haven’t come

       G            D           G           C
If the wall it goes up will the temperature drop
         G             D           C               G
Will the oil rigs that litter this land get pulled up
        G              D          G                C
Will we find some wild new way to save where we’re at
          G            D                    C        G
Would you do it? No, I doubt it where’s the money in that?’

       G            D             G            C
If the wall it goes up and you’re stuck here inside
    G                D          C            G
And caught with skin color some lawmen don’t like
          G                 D              G           C
Will they beat you with the same bars they throw you behind
          G             D            C           G
If it was you would you resist, give in, or just hide?

       G            D              G          C
If the wall it goes up and there’s no need to leave
        G         D             C             G
Could I get all I want from the number on the screen?
     G       D           G           C
If I dial 1-800 will you bring it to me
G              D          C       G
Straight to my couch the American dream

       G            D           G           C
If the wall it goes up and your Jesus comes back
       G             D             C          G
And he knocks on the door will you stand to attack
      G              D             G               C
If he don’t have his papers and he don’t have much cash
          G            D            C             G
Would you take him in, jail him, or just send him back?

       G            D            G             C
If the wall it gets built will I get rich like you?
      G        D               C           G
Can I buy me a fake wife and a ghostwriter too?
      G              D               G        C
And a Rolls Royce to drive down each broke avenue
        G         D                    C         G
Smiling fat on my high horse through a ghetto so gloom

       G            D             G     C
If the wall it goes up around the idiot king
      G           D         C           G
And a new Joan of Arc rises against his name
         G             D              G          C
Will you stand there beside her, burn her at the stake
   G            D            C             G
Or glance at it there on the news the next day?

       G            D              G             C
If the wall it gets built like the walls built before
        G            D               C         G
Will we be forced to take sides in a new civil war?
           G       D       G        C
Where it’s East vs West vs South vs North
       G           D            C         G
Versus people with money versus people so poor

       G            D         G              C
If the wall it goes up do you think it could stop
    G            D           C                G
The bombs coming in from countries you pissed off
          G                 D           G        C
With your big mouth blowing up like the 4th of July
        G               D             C           G
Shut it Donald, shut it please man we don’t wanna die

            G             D            G           C
But, if the wall it stays down and the people stay free
         G            D          C             G
And it’s not quite as bad as you said it would be
        G         D              G         C
What if I let you be you and you let me be me
         G               D        C         G
That’s a song before the wall for all us to sing
       G               D        C   C/B C/A G
It’s a song before the wall for all us  to  sing
