[Verse 1]
  G                    G/B
Johnny says I'm out of here,
  C                     C/D      G     C/G    G       C/G
Mary knows she's staying in a - lone,      |  /  /  /  /  |
  G                     G/B     C                        C/D    G    C/G
Find it hard to get a - long, wonder about the price of happy homes,
  G       G/B C   D             D4   D            Em      Em7/D  C       G   C/G
| /  /  /  /__/ |    Sometimes feel like they're caught in  a  landslide,
  G       G/B C   D             D4    D       Em     Em7/D  C            G   C/G
| /  /  /  /__/ |    Sometimes eve - rything seems to make  no sense at all!


[Chorus]
G       C/G      G         Bm           F             C
    But it's so clear, ...bright, the other side of maybe,
C/D         G     Bm              F               C   C/D       G        Bm

Fuzzy in the after - noon, drifting into thoughts about a  war,    |  /  /  /  /  |
   G                      G/B   C                      C/D           G   C/G
Drawing lines and taking sides,   we're getting tired, seen it be - fore,
  G       G/B C    D           D4    D          Em   Em7/D  C        G   C/G
| /  /  /  /__/ |     Spacemen see there's no heaven   a - bove us,
  G       G/B C    D          D4    D      Em        Em7/D  C        G   C/G
| /  /  /  /__/ |     If you want, you can say there's no hell below!
