If I Had A Rocket Launcher  Bruce Cockburn
















[E]Here comes the [D]heli[C]copter, [D]   [E]
[E]Second [D]time [C]today   [D]   [E]
[E]Every[D]body [C]scatters[D]   [E]
[E]And hopes it [D]goes [C]away [D]   [E]
[E]How many [D]kids they've [C]murdered[D]   [E]
[E]Only [D]God can [C]say  [B]    [A]
[A]If I had a rocket [D]launcher
[A]If I had a rocket [D]launcher
[A]If I had a rocket [D]launcher
I'd make somebody pay [E]   [D]   [C]   [D]   [E]   [D]   [C]   [E]

I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
I don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
I would retaliate

On the Rio Lacuntun one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation or some less humane fate
Cry for Guatemala with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
I would not hesitate

INSTRUMENTAL

I want to raise every voice, at least I've got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes
Situation desperate echoes of the victim's cry
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
Some son-of-a-bitch would die
