I Want To Live  John Denver

there are c[G]hildren raised in sorrow
On a sc[E]orched and barren plain
There are c[C]hildren raised be[Am]neath a golden sun  [G]
[D7]There are c[G]hildren of the water
C[Em]hildren of the sand
And they c[C]ry out through the u[Am]niverse
Their vo[E]ices raised as [D]one  [Dsus4]


[D]I want to [G]live i want to g[Gmaj7]row
I want to [C]see i want to k[Cadd9]now
I want to sh[F]are what i can gi[C]ve
I want to [D]be i want to li[G]ve
Have you [G]gazed out on the ocean
Seen the br[Em]eaching of a whale?
Have you wa[C]tched the dolphins [Am]frolic in the foam? [G]
[D7]Have you hea[G]rd the song the humpback hears five h[Em]undred miles away
Telling t[C]ales of ancient h[Am]istory of p[E]assages and home?
(chorus)

For the wo[Am]rker and the warrior the l[Em]over and the liar
For the na[Em]tive and the wa[Am]nderer in ki[G]nd
For the m[Am]aker and the user and the mo[Em]ther and her son
I am loo[Em]king for my f[Am]amily and a[E]ll of you are m[D7]ine

We are s[G]tanding all together
Face to [Em]face and arm in arm
We are s[C]tanding on the t[Am]hreshold of a dream  [G]
[D7]No more hu[G]nger no more killing
No more was[Em]ting life away
It is si[G]mply an i[Am]dea
And i kn[E]ow its time has c[D]ome
Chorus
