Wrote a Song for Everyone   Creedence Clearwater Revival

[G]Met myself a [D]comin' [C] county welfare [G]line
I was a-feelin' [C]strung out, [G]hung out on the [D]line
[G]Saw myself a-[D]goin' [Em]down to the war in [C]June
[G]All I want, [D]all I want is to [C]write myself a [G]tune
[C] Wrote a song for[G] everyone
[C] Wrote a song for [G]truth
[C] Wrote a song for [G]everyone[Em]--
When I [C]couldn't even [D7]talk to [G]you

Verse 2:
[G]Got myself a[D]rested, [C]wound me up in [G]jail
[G]Richmond 'bout to [C]blow up, [G]communication [D]fails
[G]If you see the [D]answer, [Em]now's the time to [C]say
[G]All I want, {D]all I want is to [C]get you down to [G]pray


(instrumental, same pattern as verses)


Verse 3:
[G]Saw the people [D]standin' a [C]thousand years in [G]chains
[G]Somebody said it's a-[C]different now; [G]look, it's just the [D]same
[G]Pharaohs spin the [D]message [Em]round and round the [C]truth
[G]They could have saved a [D]million people, [C]how can I tell you?

(repeat chorus 3 times; 3rd time pause on the Em then slowly arpeggio through the C and the G chord and then strum the G chord
