This is the best version that I've found. Here are all the lyrics and the chords 
are in exactly where they should be when sung.


[Verse]
G      D      Em       Bm    
little child, dry your cryin eyes
C       G            Em       D
how can I explain the fear you feel inside
G                D    Em       Bm
because you were born into this evil world
C            G              Em               D
where man is killing man and no one knows just why
C         Bm       Em             Bm
what have we become just look what we have done
C        G              Em              D
all that we’ve destroyed you must build again


[Chorus]
         Em       Bm          C       G
when the children cry, let em know we tried
             Em       Bm            C         D
because when the children sing then the new world begins


[Verse 2]
G      D     Em       Bm
little child you must show the way
C    G             Em      D
To a better day for all the young
G      D         Em           Bm
because you were born for all the world to see
C       G                Em       D
that we all can live with love and peace
C       Bm        Em          Bm
no more presidents and all the wars will end
C     G                 Em    D
one united world under god


[Chorus]
         Em       Bm          C       G
when the children cry, let em know we tried
             Em       Bm            C         D
because when the children sing then the new world begins


[Solo]

G D Em Bm C G Em D
G D Em Bm C G Em D


[Bridge]
C         Bm       Em             Bm
what have we become just look what we have done
C        G              Em              D
all that we’ve destroyed you must build again
C       Bm        Em          Bm
no more presidents and all the wars will end
C     G                 Em    D
one united world under god


[Chorus]
         Em       Bm          C       G
when the children cry, let em know we tried
         Em       Bm              C          D
when the children fight, let em know it ain’t right
         Em       Bm           C        G
when the children pray, let em know the way
             Em       Bm              C          D
because when the children sing, then the new world begins

i think it sounds better played with the following chords. e/g for Em, and Bmin for Bm or play Bm without the high E, play those for the veerse. in the chorus use switch back to Em and Bm. i find that it sounds better if i strum with my thumb during the verses o its a litlle softer and i am able to skip the high E easily then when chorus comes switch to pick, becomes louder. i hold the pick in my hand with only my midlle finger wrapped around it for easy switching.
