(repeat 1st verse music with 2nd verse lyrics then chorus and thats it)


lyrics:

[1st verse]

little child dry your cryin eyes
how can I explain the fear you feel inside
cuz you were born into this evil world
where man is killing man and no one knows just why
what have we become just look what we have done
all that weve destroyed you must build again


[chorus]

when the children cry let em know we tried
when the children sing and the new world begins


[2nd verse]

little child you must show the way
for a better day for all the young
cuz you were born for the world to see
that we all can live with love and peace
no more presidents and all the wars will end
one united world under god


[chorus]

this isnt exactly how they play it but its pretty close
its easy to play an sing and sounds awesome on a 12 string
not sure if the chords are named right but the tab shows notes
also note on the intro and the chorus the G adds 3rd fret on B string
this is my first tab so please be easy on me LOL

Works for me. I thought I'd never be able to play this one.
