I Want To Live

John Denver

 G
there are children raised in sorrow
 E
On a scorched and barren plain
 CAmG
There are children raised beneath a golden sun   
 D7G
 There are children of the water
 Em
Children of the sand
 CAm
And they cry out through the universe
 EDDsus4
Their voices raised as one   

 DGGmaj7
 I want to live i want to grow
 CCadd9
I want to see i want to know
 FC
I want to share what i can give
 DG
I want to be i want to live

 G
Have you gazed out on the ocean
 Em
Seen the breaching of a whale?
 CAmG
Have you watched the dolphins frolic in the foam?  
 D7GEm
 Have you heard the song the humpback hears five hundred miles away
 CAmE
Telling tales of ancient history of passages and home?

(chorus)

 AmEm
For the worker and the warrior the lover and the liar
 EmAmG
For the native and the wanderer in kind
 AmEm
For the maker and the user and the mother and her son
 EmAmED7
I am looking for my family and all of you are mine

 G
We are standing all together
 Em
Face to face and arm in arm
 CAmG
We are standing on the threshold of a dream   
 D7G
 No more hunger no more killing
 Em
No more wasting life away
 GAm
It is simply an idea
 ED
And i know its time has come

Chorus


Am C Cadd9 D D7 Dsus4 E Em F G Gmaj7
