Well this tab has had alot of requests and i cant believe no one has tabbed
it!This is my version of it, if you have any corrections or problems please

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

F#               G#
  People saving whales,
                 B              C#
And giving your thanks to our seas,
    F#                        G#
My respect to the ones in the forest,
         B               C#
Standing up for our old trees

Chorus:
This strumming pattern is pretty common in xaviers songs. Use it at this
chorus, and for the rest of the song after this chorus.
         F#          B            C#           B

E|---2-x--2-x------x----x-------x----x-------x----x---|

             F#    
Them giving food to the hungry,
B
Hope to the needy,
      C#
Giving life to a baby,
       B
Giving care for free,
                F#
'Cause there is freedom around us,
        B
We have everything we need,
           C#
And I will care for you,
           B
'Cause you care for me.
         F#
And we all have opinions,
B
Some of them get through,
           C#
But theres better people,
          B
With more good to do.
        F#    B     C#     C#
Good to do

Little riff after chorus:
e|-----------------------|
B|---2/6----6/7----7/9---|

F#                            G#
And what I have could be my search
               B           C#
Or just some words from my heart
    F#                          G#
My respect to the ones making changes
             B                       C#
For all the lives theyll give their all


                  F#    
Like them giving food to the hungry,
B
Hope to the needy,
      C#
Giving life to a baby,
       B
Giving care for free,
                F#
'Cause there is freedom around us,
        B
We have everything we need,
           C#
And I will care for you,
           B
'Cause you care for me.
         F#
And we all have opinions,
B
Some of them get through,
           C#
But theres better people,
          B
With more good to do.
        F#    B     C#     C#
Good to do

Riff after chorus:

B|---2/6----6/7----7/9---|

          B                               F#
When our world it keeps spinning round and round it goes
       B                              F#
Human nature keeps on spreading its disease
         B                             F#
And our children keep growing up with what they know
             G#                 C#
From what we teach and what they see
          B                      F#
And it's only a question of the time we have
          B                      C#
And the lives that our children need
               B                          F#
Cause they can only keep growing up with what they know
            G#                    C#
And what we teach, and what they see


                  F#    
Like giving food to the hungry,
B
Hope to the needy,
      C#
Giving life to a baby,
       B
Giving care for free,
                F#
'Cause there is freedom around us,
        B
We have everything we need,
           C#
And I will care for you,
           B
'Cause you care for me.
         F#
And we all have opinions,
B
Some of them get through,
           C#
But theres better people,
          B
With more good to do.
        F#    B     C#     C#
Good to do
             F#    B     C#     C#
Oooo good to do 

F#

I'm quite sure it's a G sharp minor, not major
