[G]grandpa said to cousin jed
[C]sittin' on the po[G]rch,
"i won't retire   [D]
C*
but i might retread
[G]seems like that guy singin' this song
[C]been doin' it for a l[G]ong time
is there anything he knows [D]
C*
that he ain't said?
[G]sing a song for fr[C]eedom
[G]sing a song for lo[C]ve
[G]sing a song for d[C]epressed angels
falling from [G]above"

[G]grandpa held the paper
[C]pretendin' he could [G]see
D C*
but he couldn't read without his glasses on
[G]"how can all these people
[C]afford so many th[G]ings?

when i was young
D C*
people wore what they had on...and mama said
'a[G] little love and af[C]fection
[G]in everything you [C]do
[G]will make the world a b[C]etter place
with or withou[G]t you'"

D*
a little love and affection
[C]in everything you do

[G]slammin' down a late night shot
[C]the hero and the artist co[G]mpared
goals and visions and aft[D]erthoughts
[C]for the 21st century

[G]but mostly came up with nothin'
[C]so the truth was never learn[G]ed
and the human race just kept r[D]ollin' on  [C]

[G]rollin' through the fi[C]ghting
[G]rollin' through the religious w[C]ars
[G]rollin' down the temple [C]walls
and the church's exposed [G]sores

D*
rollin' through the fighting
[C]the religious wars

[G]"grandpa here's your glasses
[C]you'll see much better n[G]ow,"
G D C*
said that young girl of edith and earl's
[G]but grandpa just kept starin'
[C]he was lost in some distant th[G]ought

then he turned and said
to that young gi[D]rl       [C]  [Csus2]      [C]

[G]"a little love and aff[C]ection
[G]in everything you [C]do
[G]will make the world a better p[C]lace
with or without y[G]ou"
D*
with or without you
[C]a better place
D*
with or without you
[C]with or without you
D* C
[G]hear that rooster crowin'
[C]down on the double e

it's a new morning
D C*
dawning on the green
[G]bouncing off the towers
[C]and the sun's heading down for the streets

the business meeting
D C*
window shades are drawn

[G]another morning ed[C]ition
[G]headed for the po[C]rch
[G]because grandma puts down the p[C]aper
before grandpa raises his f[G]ork

D*
a little love and affection
[C]in everything you do
D* C
A Better Place
D*
hear the rooster crowing
[C]down on the double e
