The Internationale  Billy Bragg

Dedicado a León Trotsky, Emiliano Zapata y Comandante Che Guevara
Stand [A]up all victims of [D]oppression
For the [E7]tyrants fear your [A]might[E7]
Don't [A]cling so hard to your [D]possessions
For you have [E7]nothing if you have no[A] rights
Let [E]racist [B7]ignorance be [E]ended
For re[B7]spect makes the empires [E]fall[B7]
Freedom is [E]merely p[E7]rivilege [A]extended
Unless en[E]joyed by [B7]one and [E]all[E7]
( Tab from: )
So come [A]brothers and [D]sisters
For the s[E7]truggle carries [A]on[E7]
The [A]Inter-[E7]natio[F#m]nal-[C#7]E
U[D]nites the [B7]world in [E]song[E7]
So come [A]comrades and [D]rally
For this [E7]is the time and [A]place[A7]
The [F#7]internatio[Bm7]nal ideal
U[A]nites the [E7]human [A]race
Verse 2:
Let no one build walls to divide us
Walls of hatred or walls of stone
Come greet the dawn and stand beside us
We'll live together or we'll die alone
In our world poisoned by exploitation
Those who have taken, now they must give
And end the vanity of nations
We have but one world on which to live
Verse 3:
And so begins the final drama
In the streets and in the fields
We stand unbowed before their armor
We defy their guns and shields
When we fight provoked by their aggression
Let us be inspired by life and love
For though they offer us concessions
Change will not come from above
