I Want to Live  John Denver

There are[D] children raised in sorrow
On a sc[Bm]orched and barren pla[D]in
G Em D ? A7
There are children raised beneath a golden sun
There are[D] children of the water
C[Bm]hildren of the s[D]and
And they c[G]ry out through the u[Em]niverse Their Voices r[C]aised as one[A]
[A]I want to [D]live i want to g[Dmaj7]row
I want to [G]see i want to k[Gadd9]now
I want to sh[A]are what i can gi[G]ve
I want to [A]be i want to li[D]ve
Have you [D]gazed out on the ocean
Seen the br[Bm]eaching of a whal[D]e?
G Em D ? A7
Have you watched the dolphins frolic in the foam?
Have you h[D]eard the song the humpback hears
five[Bm] hundred miles [D]away
Telling t[G]ales of ancient h[Em]istory of p[C]assages and h[A]ome? (chorus)
(Bridge) For the w[Em]orker and the warrior the [Bm]lover and the liar
For the na[C]tive and the w[Em]anderer in k[D]ind
F[Em]or the maker and the user an[Bm]d the mother and her son
[C]I am looking[Em] for my fam[C]ily and all of [A7]you are mine
We are s[D]tanding all together
Face to [Bm]face and arm in a[D]rm
G Em D ? A7
We are standing on the threshold of a dream
No more [D]hunger no more killing
No more was[Bm]ting life a[D]way
It is si[G]mply an i[Em]dea and I kn[C]ow it?s time ha[A]s come (Chorus Repeat last line 2X)
