Intro: Em G Em G Em A Em A G G [2x]

Lets go 
C                        D
 so so you think you can tell
            Am
heaven from hell
                G
blue skies from pain
                   D
can you tell a green field
                  C
from a cold steel rail
              Am
a smile from a vail
                   G
do you think you can tell
                    C
did they get you to trade             
                D
your heroes for ghosts

              Am
hot ashes for trees
                   G
hot air for a cool breeze
                 D
cold comfort for change
        C
did you exchange
                      Am 
a walk on part in the war
                       G     G
for a lead role in the cage


Intro (x1):  Em G Em G Em A Em A G G

whether your listening to hip hip-hop
or your tuning to rock
refugees on your box
we gonna take over ya blocks


lets go
C                                D
 how i wish, how i wish you were here
           Am                           
we´re just two lost souls swimming in a fish-bowl
G
 year after year
D                     
 running over the same old ground
C                               Am
 but have we found the same old fears
              G      G
wish you were here

Intro (x1):  Em G Em G Em A Em A G

whether you listening to rock
or you pumping the hip-hop
refugees on your box

[Play the G-Chord only]
critics don´t mistake this for just any cover tune
I´ma take ya all to the dark side of the moon
kicking in my moms womb this song was just a thought
a young refugee labeled, just come with a passport
dad used to tell me about the american dream
my dream was waking up the projects
a young teen listening to hip-hop
my brother tuned me into rock
put me up on pink floyd a band from the british blocks

Intro (x1):  Em G Em G Em A Em A G 

Play the G-Chord till the end

whether you pumpin the hip hip-hop
or you tuning to rock
refugees in your box we gonna take over your blocks
from n.j. to bk to the uk


Have Fun While Playing!
