People Have the Power  Patti Smith

I was dreaming in my dr[D]eaming[G]
Of an a[D]spect bright and f[G]air
And my sl[D]eeping, it was br[G]oken
But my dr[D]eam it lingered n[G]ear
In the f[D]orm of shining v[G]alleys
Where the p[D]ure air recogn[G]ised
And my s[D]enses newly [G]opened
I awa[D]kened to the c[G]ry
That the p[A]eople have the [Bm]power
To rede[D]em the work of fo[E]ols
Upon the m[A]eek the graces sh[Bm]ower
It's decr[D]eed, the people r[A]ule
People have the [D]power[G]
People have the [E]power[A]
People have the [D]power [G]
People have the [E]power[A]
/ D / G / x2
Vengeful [D]aspects became s[G]uspect
And bending l[D]ow as if to h[G]ear
And the [D]armies ceased adv[G]ancing
Because the p[D]eople had their e[G]ar
And the sh[D]epherds and the s[G]oldiers
Lay ben[D]eath among the st[G]ars
Exchanging v[D]isions and laying [G]arms
To w[D]aste in the d[G]ust
In the f[A]orm of shining v[Bm]alleys
Where the p[D]ure air recogn[E]ised
And my s[A]enses newly [Bm]opened
I aw[D]akened to the c[A]ry
People have the [D]power[G]
People have the [E]power[A]
People have the [D]power [G]
People have the [E]power[A]
/ D / G / x4
Where there were [D]deserts I saw f[G]ountains
Like cre[D]am the waters r[G]ise
And we str[D]olled there tog[G]ether
With none to l[D]augh or critic[G]ise
And the l[D]eopard and the l[G]amb
Lay tog[D]ether truly b[G]ound
I was h[D]oping in my h[G]oping
To re[D]call what I had f[G]ound
I was dr[A]eaming in my dr[Bm]eaming
God kn[D]ows a purer v[E]iew
As I l[A]ay down to my sl[Bm]eeping
I comm[D]it my dream to y[A]ou
People have the [D]power[G]
People have the [E]power[A]
People have the [D]power [G]
People have the [E]power[A]
The power to dr[D]eam, to r[G]ule
To wr[E]estle the world from f[A]ools
It's decr[D]eed, the people r[G]ule
It's decr[E]eed, the people r[A]ule
Listen, [D]I believe everyth[G]ing we dream
Can c[E]ome to pass through our [A]union
W[D]e can turn the w[G]orld around
W[E]e can turn the e[A]arth's revolution
People have the [D]power[G]
People have the [E]power[A]
People have the [D]power [G]
People have the [E]power[A]
The power to dr[D]eam, to r[G]ule
To wr[E]estle the world from f[A]ools
It's decr[D]eed, the people r[G]ule
It's decr[E]eed, the people r[A]ule
