	* capo instrument at 1st fret

Introduction:  Am    /G

The birds they sang

at the break of day

Start again

             C    C7
I heard them say

Don't dwell on what

has passed away

           G       Gsus4     G5  G7  G
or what is yet to be.

The wars they will
be fought again
The holy dove
be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
the dove is never free.

	         F          Bb        F
	Ring the bells that still can ring.

	            Bb           F
	Forget your perfect offering.

	           C        Bb        F
	There is a crack, a crack, in everything.

                       Dm                G    Gsus4   G
	That's how the light gets in.

We asked for signs
the signs were sent:
the birth betrayed
the marriage spent
the widowhood
of every government -
signs for all to see.

Can't run no more
with the lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they've summed up
A thundercloud
and they're going to hear from me.


You can add up the parts
but you won't have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.



that's how the light gets in
that's how the light gets in

[instrumental verse twice and fade]
