Verse 1:
[Am]I've wept for those who suffer long

But how I weep for those who've gone

Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
But keep on killing [Dsus4]

Verse 2:
[Am]It's in the soul to feel such things

But weak to watch without speaking

Oh what mercy sadness brings
If God be willing[Dsus4]        (Riff [Am]1)

[Am/B]There is a [C]train that's heading straight
[C/B]To heaven's gate,[Am] to heaven[Am/B]'s gate  [C]
[C/B]And on the way,[C] child and man
[C/B]And woman wait, w[Am]atch a[Am/B]nd wait    [D]
For redemption day       [Am]

Verse 3:
[Am]The fire rages in the streets

And swallows everything it meets

It's just an image often seen
On television [Dsus4]

Verse 4:
[Am]Come leaders, come you men of great

Let us hear you pontificate

Your many virtues laid to waste
Dsus4 Riff 1
And we aren't listening

Verse 5: (Different)
[Am]What do you have f[Dsus4]or us today      [C]       [Am]
[Am]Throw us a bone [Dsus4]but saw the plate     [C]         [Am]
[Am]Oh why we waited[Dsus4] til so late   [C]         [Am]
[Am]Was there no oil to excavate          [Dsus4]

No riches in trade for the fate

Of every person who died in hate
Throw us a bone, you men of great   [C]          [Am]

[Am/B]There is a [C]train that's heading straight
[C/B]To heaven's gate,[Am] to h[Am/B]eaven's gate [C]
[C/B]And on the way,[C] child and man
[C/B]And woman wait, w[Am]atch a[C]nd wait        [Dsus4]
Am Riff 1
For redemption day

Verse 6:
[Am]It's buried in[C] the countryside    [Dsus4]           [Am]
[Am]Exploding in t[C]he shells of night    [Dsus4]
[Am]It's everywhere a baby cries
[Dsus4]Freedom, fr[Am]eedom, freed[Dsus4]om, freedom[Am]

Ends on Am
