The Byrds I Come And Stand At Every Door by N.Hikmet
[D]I come and [C/D]stand at every [D]door but no one [C/D]hears my silent [D]prayer
I [G]knock and [A]yet remain uns[D]een for [Em]I am dead for [C]I am [D]dead
[D]I'm only [C/D]seven although I [D]died
In Hiro[C/D]shima long [D]ago
I'm [G]seven [A]now and I was [D]then when children [Em]die they [C]do not [D]grow
[D]My hair was [C/D]scorched by swirling [D]fire
My eyes grew [C/D]dim my eyes grew [D]blind
Death [G]came and [A]turned my bones to [D]dust
And [Em]that was scattered [C]by the [D]wind
[D]I need no fruit [C/D]I need no [D]rice I need no [C/D]sweets nor even [D]bread
I [G]ask for [A]nothing for [D]myself for [Em]I am dead for [C]I am de[D]ad
[D]All that I [C/D]ask for is for [D]peace
You fight [C/D]today you fight [D]today
[G]So that the c[A]hildren of this[D] world
May [Em]live and grow and [C]laugh and [D]play
From the "Fifth Dimension" LP Columbia Records 1966
