Wrote a Song for Everyone

Creedence Clearwater Revival

 GDCG
 Met myself a comin'  county welfare line
 CGD
I was a-feelin' strung out, hung out on the line
 GDEmC
 Saw myself a-goin' down to the war in June
 GDCG
 All I want, all I want is to write myself a tune

CHORUS:
 CG
  Wrote a song for everyone
 CG
  Wrote a song for truth
 CGEm
  Wrote a song for everyone--
 CD7G
When I couldn't even talk to you

Verse 2:
 GDCG
 Got myself arested, wound me up in jail
 GCGD
 Richmond 'bout to blow up, communication fails
 GDEmC
 If you see the answer, now's the time to say
 GCG
 All I want, {D]all I want is to get you down to pray

(chorus)

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)

(chorus)

Verse 3:
 GDCG
 Saw the people standin' a thousand years in chains
 GCGD
 Somebody said it's a-different now; look, it's just the same
 GDEmC
 Pharaohs spin the message round and round the truth
 GDC
 They could have saved a million people, how can I tell you?

(repeat chorus 3 times; 3rd time pause on the Em then slowly arpeggio through the C and the G chord and then strum the G chord
