Paradise in Troubled Waters  Cheryl Wheeler

Cheryl Wheeler Paradise In Troubled Waters written by Cheryl Wheeler
[F]Winter's voice had [G]barely spoken
[Em]Everyone was [F]bummed and broken
[F]Hangin' onto [G]yhreads the way we [C]do[F] [G]
[F]Shielding eyes from [G]TV screens
[Em]With African [F]starvation scenes
And photographs in [G]magazines
Of t[F]hings that [G]can't seem [C]true[F] [G]
[C]Paradise In Troubled Waters
[F]Situation g[G]rim
[C]And we the reckless sons and daughters
[F]Spread the luck so [G]thin
Oh, the [C]gross results and chain reaction
[F]Too late under[G]stood
[F]Leave us in embar[G]rassed silence
[F]Wishing that we [G]could
Make the [C]difference, see the light
Carry the [F]flag, lead the [G]fight
Save the [C]whales, save the seals
Save the [F]trees and birds and [G]fields
And save each [FaddB]other[C] [F] [G]
[F]So we read the news with [G]helpless eyes
[Em]And look for ways to [F]compromise
[F]But mostly, we just [G]do the best we [C]can[F] [G]
Is it [F]just a part of [G]what we are
To [Em]want too much and [F]go too far
[F]And contemplate with no [G]regard
[F]What we don't [G]understan[C]d[F] [G]
