Lyrics by: Chris Sammond (Thanks!)

[Verse]

E                            A        B     E
There comes a time when we heed a certain call (Lionel Richie)
          A          B                E
When the world must come together as one (Lionel Richie & Stevie Wonder)
             C#m
There are people dying (Stevie Wonder)
             G#m                     A
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life (Paul Simon)
                      B
The greatest gift of all (Paul Simon/Kenny Rogers)

E                            A        B     E
We can't go on pretending day by day (Kenny Rogers)
          A          B                E
That someone, somehow will soon make a change (James Ingram)

We're all a part of God's great big family (Tina Turner)
             G#m                     A
And the truth (Billy Joel)
                      B
You know love is all we need (Tina Turner/Billy Joel)


[Chorus]

            A   B               E    E7
We are the world, we are the children
            A                       B                  E
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving (Michael Jackson)
          C#m                       G#m
There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives (Diana Ross)
     A                        B                E
It's true we'll make a better day just you and me (Michael Jackson/Diana Ross)


[Verse]

            A   B               E    E7
Well, send'em you your heart so they know that someone cares (Dionne Warwick)
            A                       B                  E
And their lives will be stronger and free (Dionne Warwick/Willie Nelson)
          C#m                       G#m
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread (Willie Nelson)
     A                        B                E
And so we all must lend a helping hand (Al Jurreau)


[Chorus]

            A   B               E    E7
We are the world, we are the children (Bruce Springsteen)
            A                       B                  E
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving (Kenny Logins)

It's true we'll make a better day just you and me (Daryl Hall)

When you're down and out there seems no hope at all (Michael Jackson)
              C                   D              E
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall (Huey Lewis)
                        C#m             G#m
Well, well, well, let's realize that a change can only come (Cyndi Lauper)
     A
When we (Kim Carnes)
                  B
stand together as one (Kim Carnes/Cyndi Lauper/Huey Lewis)


[Ending]

            A   B               E    E7
We are the world, we are the children
            A                       B                  E
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving
          C#m                       G#m
There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives
     A                        B                E
It's true we'll make a better day just you and me

yea thanks a lot for this, but, after the second repeat of the chorus at the end, after bob dylan's part, it goes up a half step, so:
E = F, A = Bb, B = C, C#m = Dm, and G#m = Am.
this is just a small correction though. this is great thank you.
